Cirencester, UKLearning NewsFosway

David Perring, director of research at Fosway Group, Europe’s #1 HR and learning analyst, will share the latest digital learning insights in the keynote address at this week’s Digital Learning Disruption event in Dubai.


Hosted by Biz Group – UAE, the annual event focuses on bringing new trends and research to learning and development professionals based across the Middle East. Perring’s keynote will explore the realities of digital learning today and the opportunities presented by the digital transformation of businesses across the world, including:

  • The learning technologies people are using today and what they plan to use tomorrow
  • How to put digital learning technology into context
  • The implications of digital disruption for your learning strategy, systems and content

Perring commented, ‘The world of work is changing radically. Work is being transformed by new digital revolution. A shift in demographics is changing the balance of worker expectations. The global war for talent is intensifying. Against a back drop of shifts in economics, politics and legalisation, what does it take for L&D to be fit for the future?'

'Many organisations are in the process of a digital transformation of their L&D. But from what we see, much of that is tinkering around the edges rather than truly redefining what L&D is and truly transforming their approach to be ready for the changes and challenges of the future. There is much to learn and there has never been a more exciting time to be involved in L&D.'

He continues, ‘And that’s why I’m excited about having a chance to discover whats happening in the Middle East, share the lessons learned from our global research and explore how learning professionals in this region can seize the opportunities that are emerging from digital learning.’

Hazel Jackson, CEO of Biz Group added, ‘We’re committed to bringing the very latest L&D trends to our audience and the Middle East region, so it’s a privilege to host David Perring as our keynote speaker. Not only will we hear new analysis and research data, but crucially our attendees will have the unique opportunity to workshop David’s practical insights and take away their own unique action plan from the event.’
