The Speexx Exchange is a day-long side-event wherein managers and directors from the HR/L&D fields share and exchange best practices/lessons learned from learning programs at their respective organizations. It will include workshops.

This year’s focus will remain on digital transformation, personalized learning, microlearning and learning insights, but with more of a focus on AI, technology; underlining how we’re at a tipping point in history where tech, AI, big data and cloud is falling into place – tech finally being able to properly facilitate not just proper communication, but HR management, learning goals, and so on; how AI and machine learning have practical applications in HR and L&D.
