2015 IBM Smarter Workforce Summit
PMSL recently attended the 2015 IBM Smarter Workforce Summit at the Kia Oval, in London. The summit‘s focus was to enable industry professionals to transform business by connecting talent, technology and commerce to improve business outcomes. The summit included a number of exciting presentations and discussions related to Talent Acquisition, Workforce Science, Employee Experience, and Talent Analytics.
Notable speakers included JJ Thakkar from Statoil who spoke about the importance of allocating budget to training to achieve business success and Nick Timpson from IBM who discussed the need for empathy for users when designing programmes of learning. The meeting also included a lively guest presentation from Professor Brian Cox OBE.
This event is well known in Europe as an excellent opportunity for networking with industry peers and thought leaders; attracting over 600 delegates.
Maggie Mosley, our Director of Business Psychology, met a number of interesting people at the event and (encouraged by the organisers of the event) took a number of pictures with individuals whom she had the pleasure of meeting while there.
Staying up-to-date with industry trends via events is critical to ensuring PMSL’s training offering is ‘on the pulse’ of current business practices and able to solve new challenges that businesses face. It was therefore delightful that the day proved to be useful for our continuous development.
We thoroughly enjoyed the event and we look forward to attending again in the future.
