Executive Summary

Once again It was an honor to host the leading HR and Talent development leaders from the best organisations in our region. The participation of our annual survey once again was tremendous. The clear topic winner this year was “Digital Transformation”. We spoke about the death of the L&D manager as we know it, and the need for us all to ensure we were up to speed with the ever-changing world of technology. It’s not always a natural thing for many HR and Training professionals but we must embrace the change and learn ourselves to become more agile and knowledgeable.
