Chief Learning & Talent Officer
Kelly Palmer, Chief Learning & Talent Officer at Degreed, talks about how learning is being disrupted in major ways in the corporate world and why there has never been a more exciting time to be in the learning field. Kelly will discuss some of the trends that are causing this disruption in the workplace and how these trends are changing and shaping the way we need to think about learning and career development for the future. Traditional corporate training approaches have not adapted to the knowledge economy and digital transformation is everywhere. Kelly describes how she and others have created forward-thinking learning and career transformation strategies that incorporate digital transformation and help people take control of their own careers and learning. She will also talk about the changing role of the Chief Learning Officer and how roles in the learning organization need to change to adapt to both digital and workforce disruption.
This panel discussion will explore the past, present and future of the CLO role and uncover key trends and ideas about where it’s headed.
