About the event

Disruption & The New Normal

Across the globe, companies are dealing with disruptions and transformations in the way we work, learn and communicate. The new normal of work is evolving within organizations and impacting HR and L&D departments. We need to be on a lookout for better tools, better ideas, and better strategies to cope with the “new normal” and to be good leaders for others.

With Online L&D Meetup, we wanted to throw a spotlight on the big issues of the 2020’s reality. So we have decided to connect HR leaders from all over the world in a way that had never been done before.

Join a space where you will have the opportunity to connect with some of the most established HR specialists in the field. Topics will range from the change movement, leadership challenges, and online onboarding to remote work effectiveness and employment law. The event will be hosted by brilliant expert speakers, Ed Smith and Donald Taylor.

And most importantly – access for free and from the comfort of your armchairs.
Sign up today and be a part of Online L&D Meetup #Disruption & The New Normal.
