About the Forum
GP Strategies’ client forum is an invitation-only event, exclusive to our valued customers. Taking place over 1.5 days, this private forum is designed for our clients to share ideas, energize thought, and gain new insights with other learning leaders. It is not a sales or promotional event; it is for you to gain critical insights to respond to today’s disruptions.
Unleash the Power of Human+AI
March 13-14, 2024
As part of the event, we will explore new ways of working, take a fresh look at AI disruption, and explore how to help your people harness AI for a more productive future.
Artificial intelligence and other technologies have significantly disrupted the global workforce and will continue to change how we work and learn for the foreseeable future. Our approach to learning and work must shift in response to this disruption, and we are excited to collaborate with our valued customers to discuss the coming industry changes.
The forum will begin Wednesday, March 13, at 7:30 a.m. and end on Thursday, March 14, by 2:00 p.m.
