The Executive Forum, taking place on September 14, 2015 at the Hotel Kameha Grand in Bonn provides C-Level Executives unique opportunities to interact with experts and practitioners regarding the two major trends of the last years in corporate learning:

  • Transforming the global learning organization in terms of vision, governance, technology, processes and operating models &
  • Creation of functional academies for critical workforces (e.g. Finance, Sales & Marketing, Supply Chain, IT), governed not primarily by HR, but by the function itself.

Both trends have to be seen in conjunction and are fueled by the challenges around digitalization, informal learning, analytics, sustainability or multi-generational workforces. The inital agenda can be found here.

Aligned to the theme of this years Executive Forum we are happy to have the Intro keynote by Michael Frey, Head of Commercial Excellence at Evonik. He will describe the setup and role of capability building as main pillar of Evoniks commercial excellence initiative.  After the keynote best practices from various functions in European corporations will be shared and discussed in interactive formats, like world-café and fish bowl. Please find here the agenda as well as a recap here on the Learning Executive Forum 2014 for some inspiration.
