Thanks to everyone who attended Speexx Exchange this year! Our international audience and speakers created some brilliant presentations and lots of food for thought for tackling future HR and L&D challenges.

Speexx Exchange is over for this year and what an amazing time we've had. Stay tuned for more photos and videos of this year's events!



Shanghai, Paris and Berlin: Speexx Exchange 2014 was all about finding practical approaches to new learning strategies that can be applied in the workplace right away. A total of 300 attendees from over 25 countries joined, representing global organizations such as Nokia Networks, United Nations, Rentokil Initial, Ericsson, Weber-Stephen Products, E.ON, Siemens, SEW-Eurodrive and many more. Over the course of several weeks, our global events series took us through a unique exchange of innovative ideas and concepts.
Speexx Exchange kicked off in Shanghai with more than 70 HR and L&D professionals from some of China's leading domestic corporations, as well as some foreign organizatoins. The half-day event took place at the Shanghai Radisson next to the People’s Square in downtown Shanghai. We partnered with local HR consultancy Martinsen Group (a subsidiary of UK-based Thomas International) who brought some great new insights into leadership training in China.
The journey continued in Paris on December 2 at the Salon des Miroirs. Here, we met with Nicolas Hernandez of 360Learning, Stéphane Pineau of Training Orchestra and Olivier Gauvin of Opcalia. Some exclusive research findings and discussions gave attendees a unique insight into the latest e-learning and talent management trends. Find out more.
