Rise Up, the blended learning platform revolutionizing the learning experience for trainers, administrators and learners, is holding its very first event in London on Wednesday, April 27 at 6:30 pm at its office in Kings Cross. The event will feature content custom-built by learning leaders who understand the specific needs of Retail Learning and Development teams.

“We are thrilled to hold our first event in London on Wednesday, April 27,” stated Arnaud Blachon, CEO of Rise Up. “We will explore challenges and opportunities specific to Retail, and examine how new technologies such as voice recognition and AI can be used to create immersive learning experiences.”

Edmund Monk, CEO of the Learning & Performance Institute (LPI), a well-known and integral figure in the learning sector, will explain the most pressing challenges facing Retail L&D leaders today. He will share best practices on how learning leaders are creating real impact for Retail employees and their businesses.

Homeric de Sarthe, CEO of Pitchboy, will describe how technology can be used to enhance Retail L&D performance. Pitchboy uses Voice Recognition and AI to create an immersive experience for employees in situations such as shelving, cashing up, advising and guiding a customer in an aisle. Pitchboy received the HR Innovation 2021 prize and the Digital HR Awards for “Project of the Year”.

“We believe this event will offer a unique exchange focused on how to enhance a Retail company’s workforce, while ensuring that the offerings of Learning & Development are not only effective and efficient, but also engaging and enjoyable,” added Blachon.
