This past March at the Argonaut Hotel in San Francisco, CLN’s Corporate Learning Week Silicon Valley brought together 100+ learning and organizational development innovators for three days of intimate discussion on what it takes to deliver a modernized learning experience.

The pre-conference workshops kicked off bright & early with leaders at IPG Mediabrands, Uber and Deloitte, setting the tone for the conference on central themes – talking metrics to gain organizational support, building a coaching strategy, and personalizing your learning. Capping a long day of workshops was a site tour at the Lucasfilm Headquarters in the Presidio, where attendees got to experience the best of the Bay Area in film.

Agility, Interactivity, and Transformation were just some of the buzzwords ringing throughout the main conference. And what better way to set the tone than Brandon Carson, Director of Learning at Delta Airlines, presenting his findings on his book, Learning in the Age of Immediacy. In his author talk, gained some food for thought on the five workplace disruptions impacting how we communicate and work. Expanding on this front was the keynote on Modernizing L&D through Personalization , bringing cross-industry perspectives from rockstars at Facebook, IPG Mediabrands, MGM Resorts International, and S&P Global Ratings.

Balancing the content’s tech focus was a deep dive into emotional intelligence and developing people savvy. Event partners like Experience to Lead and Ariel Group shared compelling life-changing stories, with the ultimate takeaway of how to prepare teams for uncertainty in today’s VUCA world. Interactive sessions from leaders at Glassdoor, Spectrum Health, NextGen America, and Cineplex, left attendees with the know-how to beef up their career and leadership development approaches.

It wouldn’t be a Silicon Valley event without the most trailblazing trends in learning and development. From immersive technology solutions like Mursion, NovoEd and McGraw Hill in the expo hall, to inspirational stories from the World Bank and Amazon, the audience walked way with a better grasp on creating a system that makes learning adaptive, personalized and scalable.
