Speexx Exchange is over for this year and what an amazing time we've had! A big thank you to everyone who took part and made this the liveliest and most inspiring Speexx Exchange so far.
Speexx Exchange 2015 kicked off on the eve of Online Educa Berlin. Once again the event offered a full agenda with expert presentations and the chance to network with HR and L&D professionals from around the globe. A truly international audience made this day particularly special, with guests from over 15 different countries.
Our speakers represented leading organizations including Towards Maturity, Adecco, LG Electronics, Credit Suisse, Linde MH, European Climate Foundation and AGILON. Together, they created some brilliant discussions around hot topics such as talent maximization, leadership development, 70:20:10, establishing global e-learning environments and building successful competency models. The room was packed from start to finish and we wrapped up with a completely different approach this time - a live crowdsourcing activity to share ideas we'd learnt on the day.
