The future of training is a trending topic. People talk about things like mobile learning, artificial intelligence and microlearning. But how about the future of the trainer? In fact, is there a future for trainers? And instructional designers? And will our role look different to what it is today? And if it changes, will we need new skills? Author of Confessions of a Corporate Trainer, Jonathan Halls, will explore these questions during Metro DC ATD’s webinar on September 18th. He’ll look at what key skills tomorrow’s trainers need to survive. He’ll look at the three knowledge buckets critical to help organizations move through some of the biggest changes in history, and the seven skills trainers can start developing today to remain competitive. He’ll also explore why we’re called Trainers? Talent Specialists? Coaches? If you missed his keynote at Core 4 in Anaheim, be sure to join this webinar so you can start planning your professional development for 2020.

  • List key skillsets learning and talent professionals will need in tomorrow’s talent organization.
