It’s not every day you get to hear Barack Obama deliver a keynote speech. But that’s not even the main reason Unicorn are excited to be taking minds-i and Unicorn LMS to San Diego for the ATD International Conference and Exposition on 6-9 May.

The ATD International Conference and Exposition is the largest event for talent development professionals worldwide and this is the third successive year that Unicorn are heading Stateside to both inspire and be inspired.

Last year ATD saw Unicorn unveil its mobile learning reinforcement App, minds-i - designed to help businesses harness the power of informal learning - to the world. Now minds-i returns to ATD, awarded #1 Knowledge Reinforcement Tool for 2018 by The Craig Weiss Group, with a new interface, a free version downloadable from the App Store plus a host of customization and tiered-purchase options too.

As well as being at the hub of the Expo, Unicorn will also be getting the outlook of what the future holds for learning and development, and how they can help businesses address new challenges, at the Conference.

Peter Phillips, Unicorn CEO, said: “ATD is a great stargazing experience. Two years ago, learning reinforcement through Apps was emerging but the L&D profession was very inexperienced in mobile learning and publishing to Apps. This inspired us to create minds-i so we’re delighted to be taking it back to where the idea was born.”

Joe Birri, minds-i Product Manager, continued: “We digested the feedback from last year’s ATD and have implemented a load of great new features we’re excited to demo. minds-i now has more personalized learning, the ability to upload videos and other file formats, push notifications and a wide range of customization options.”

Meanwhile, Unicorn LMS heads to California riding on the crest of a wave of having been recognised as the world’s best for the financial sector for the past four years. It’s also been rated the UK’s top LMS overall by the Craig Weiss Group and in the global top 10 for user experience by Chris Pappas (eLearning Industry).

Peter added: “As an industry we’ve repeatedly been told the LMS is dead. Yet you visit events like this and find the appetite for learning management is still very much alive and kicking. What people want is evolving and the technology now commonplace in their everyday lives is setting high expectations, but the fundamentals remain the same.”

Unicorn Training is on Stand 1741 at ATD. Those that want to know more can download minds-i from the App store and check out why the experts agree Unicorn LMS is a force to be reckoned with.
