    Along with the rest of the world, the talent development field was forced to undergo drastic shifts over the past year.  Some of these shifts were an acceleration of the application of technologies the industry has been incorporating over the course of several years.  Other shifts were unexpected thrusts into unfamiliar territory.

    A year after the pandemic's spread, how effective have we adapted to these changes?  Which talent development innovations do we predict the industry will retain once the pandemic ends?  Which will the industry discard?

    How can you start integrating emerging technology into your learning initiatives?

    "One and done" approaches to learning typically fail but one on one coaching post-event can really make the learning stick. Although ideal, it's not often realistic as it's difficult to scale due to available resources and time constraints.

    Chatbots, however, present as an exciting opportunity to help you deliver on and demonstrate the learning outcomes your organization needs and wants.

    Could using chatbots help you reduce the struggle of creating sustained behavior change from your learning initiatives?

    Through attending this session you will:

    • Challenge your assumptions of what’s possible with chatbots through insights from real client experiences.
    • Deepen your understanding of the powerful combination of chatbots and data analytics
    • Learn the top 5 reasons chatbot projects fail and how to avoid them.
