Opening address: Can we be candid? Learning at the intersection of risk, change, machine and meaning


With over two decades of experience in the world of corporate Learning and Development, Marcia Conner has a clear view of how things are changing in the world of work, what never really worked for our profession, and how to quickly get on with making things right--for now and for later.

With her trademark art for making the obvious a matter of urgency, she will focus her attention on the unspoken truths that keep learning confined to box-checking, asking provocative questions, instigating a "how to level-up" mindset, and deconstructing the "but why's" and "what if's" with a compassion for the things that keep leaders up at night. A widely published author, Marcia will dive into emergent opportunities, including artificial intelligence now open to us in workplace learning, calling out the practical must-dos to keep L&D relevant. 

A smart, curious, agile, design-minded workforce is more important than ever--for employers, as well as communities, countries and the individuals who form our collective knowledge and ultimately, our power. As automation simplifies how work gets done, L&D must simplify how the next wave of human knowledge is cultivated, curated, captured, connected to machines, and personal meaning.
