Mark your calendars because you won’t want to miss FWD 2022, a free virtual event for HR, learning and development (L&D), and business leaders, hosted by Udemy Business on November 9 at 8 am PST/4 pm GMT. Join us along with your peers from around the world who share your commitment to employee development. You’ll leave inspired, informed, and empowered with new ideas and approaches to move your company forward.

Our lineup this year includes L&D experts ready to share how they’ve navigated ongoing change in the way they work, and how essential a culture of learning has been for their organizations. Our half-day agenda delivers tons of value with a limited time commitment. Attendees will get a deep dive into insights from our 2023 Workplace Learning Trends report, a look at the practices driving the biggest impact on employee growth and business outcomes, and much more. Here’s a sneak peek at what you’ll learn during FWD. 

How culture is driving learning trends

In her newly released book, ReCulturing, author and Udemy Chief Learning Officer Melissa Daimler re-defines work culture as a system that leverages behaviors, processes, and practices to create an environment that increases both employee fulfillment and organizational effectiveness.

Join Melissa for the first session of the day as she explores how culture is influencing what hybrid employees are learning at work. Get an inside look at Udemy Business’ 2023 Learning Trends Report data and how we’re seeing those trends play out among workplace learners.

Leading through a crisis: developing intrinsic motivation to move forward

Leading through the uncertainty and change during times of crisis presents a significant challenge for leaders. Our keynote for FWD 2022 features international leadership and motivational speaker, Mark Pollock, who will give us insights into the mindset, decision making, and resilience required during unexpected circumstances, and how leaders can help people develop the intrinsic motivation to move forward.

As the first blind man to race to the South Pole, everything Mark does is about inspiring leaders and their teams to build resilience and collaborate with others so that they achieve more than they thought possible.

The great shift for learning: growth in the flow of work

Get a first-hand look at practices and programs that have the biggest impact on employee growth and business outcomes, ways to build skills and capabilities at speed and scale, and the supporting technologies that can facilitate success. 

A thought leader in the space, Josh is frequently featured in publications such as Forbes, Harvard Business Review, HR Executive, The Wall Street Journal, and CLO Magazine. He is a prolific blogger and has more than 800,000 followers on LinkedIn.
