Cirencester, UKLearning NewsFosway

David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group, Europe’s #1 HR and Learning Analyst, tackles transforming learning in the digital age in his keynote session at this month’s EMEA Perspectives 2018. The annual EMEA conference, hosted by Skillsoft, SumTotal and Percipio, takes place in London on 14 May 2018.


Drawing on Fosway’s current research across HR, talent and learning, Wilson’s session addresses a key challenge facing organisations today. His keynote will explore:

  • The secrets to L&D becoming a truly digital function
  • Why digital learning and development can be pivotal to your organisation’s success
  • How the shift to digital helps bridge skills gaps
  • The tools and technologies you’ll be using – from AI to analytics
  • The implications for your current learning systems and content

Explained Wilson, ‘Everyone seems to be talking about the digital transformation of learning. But simply creating more digital content or resources is not enough. Success is about thinking digital first across the talent lifecycle – from attracting and acquiring the best new talent, to developing and retaining your people through seamless and engaging learning experiences.’

He continued ‘Fosway’s research is focused on looking at the realities facing HR, talent and learning professionals today. Innovation and new technologies are exciting, but the bigger story is really around the opportunity to reposition learning as a more strategic part of the business agenda. And I’m looking forward to leading on this at EMEA Perspectives 2018.’

Steve Wainwright, Managing Director EMEA, Skillsoft & SumTotal Systems commented, ‘We’re delighted to announce David Wilson as our keynote speaker at this year’s EMEA Perspectives event. David’s unique insights in how to harness the power of digital learning effectively within our customers’ organisations will be a compelling part of this year’s event, which expects to attract over 250 L&D leaders from all over EMEA.’
