Industry analyst John Leh led four online events with industry innovators — each focused on how to address today’s challenges and ensure learning tech success.

BLOOMSBURG, PA — September 12, 2017 — Independent research and consulting firm Talented Learning today announced its 2017 Fall Webinar Series — four free online events designed to help organizations create lasting business value and learning tech success. At each of these live sessions, CEO and Lead Analyst John Leh will team-up with industry innovators to address some of the biggest challenges learning and development professionals face.

“Our recent ‘Summer of Learning’ webinar series drew tremendous response from professionals who want practical advice that helps them advance their learning initiatives,” John Leh explained. “The Fall Webinar Series naturally expands on our summer agenda by exploring additional critical issues that are top-of-mind as learning organizations plan for the year ahead.”

The Fall Webinar Series focuses on these four topics:

  • What it takes for associations to succeed in providing continuing education to members,
  • How to get more from a traditional LMS — not with workarounds or replacement, but by augmenting existing systems,
  • How to boost engagement in extended enterprise learning programs designed to serve customers, business partners and other external audiences, and
  • How artificial intelligence works in combination with an LMS for dramatic improvement in learning experience and results.
