The global HR and L&D community is meeting for Speexx' first-ever all-virtual Speexx Exchange event, taking place on December 2, 2020. The company has announced exciting new speakers to its lineup.

MUNICH (Wednesday, October 21, 2020) – Speexx has added new speakers to its lineup for its annual Speexx Exchange conference, which will explore the acceleration of digital transformation in this "new normal." Top industry experts and thought leaders in the fields of HR and L&D will be coming together, virtually, to discuss best practices and lessons learned surrounding fundamental changes happening in the workplace - everyone shifting to all-digital almost overnight.

This will be the tenth edition of Speexx Exchange, where, similar to other years, more than 200 HR and talent management delegates across 20 countries will assemble (virtually) for insightful conversations around learning transformation and technology. To comply with health and safety regulations, the event will be entirely remote; participants will experience engaging networking and workshops via online breakout sessions and live chats with both other attendees and speakers alike.

In addition to moderator Laura Overton, international speaker, author and facilitator as well as former CEO and Founder of Towards Maturity, Speexx Exchange will be co-hosted by Jo Cook, instructional designer and classroom facilitator who specializes in virtual classrooms, webinars and live online technology. Indeed, Jo Cook is an expert in and familiar with online events and will be a valuable contribution to the virtual experience of Speexx Exchange. 

Another exciting new speaker added to the list joins Speexx Exchange from Mexico's Universidad Tecmilenio: As VP Talent, Wellbeing and Purpose at Universidad Tecmilenio, Montserrat Ventosa will be discussing specific tools at Speexx Exchange that HR and talent managers can apply to their organizations to ensure a happier, more productive and healthier workplace of the future - an especially crucial topic at an uncertain time in modern history. 

Speakers at this year's event represent a variety of nationalities and companies - spanning healthcare, academia, professional social networks, automotive/manufacturing, science, and more.

A detailed program with speaker bios is available on the Speexx Exchange website, which is constantly being updated with new additions to the agenda. The following speakers are presenting their experiences and company best practices when it comes to fast-forwarding digital transformation, and will each be providing their own definitions of this concept of a "new normal":
