This month’s keynote speaker will be Gaël Fouillard. Gaël Fouillard is currently Director of Executive Education at Grenoble Ecole de Management (GEM).

After completing a Bachelor in Political Sciences from the Institute of Political Studies of Grenoble, he obtained a Master in International Business from Grenoble Ecole de Management.

His first professional experience was in business development in the IT Services, but he spent most of his career in education with GEM. First focusing on international development: Student exchanges and Academic cooperation in various areas (US/Canada, China, Eastern Europe), then international programs for MBAs and custom programs for partners and public organizations.

In the last 6 years he has been leading the development of Executive Education programs of GEM, which covers both Degree and Certificate programs for individuals as well as customized programs for corporate clients, in France and internationally.

Fouillard’s presentation is: From Corporate University to Learning Organisation: Developing Competencies in 2020

Here are few topics to be covered in the presentation:

– Overview of some of the trends that are shaping the corporate learning environment – key business business transformations and elements that are driving the way companies are developing competencies : globalization, digitalization (and more broadly technology), pace of change, shortage of talents, etc.)
– How these trends have impacted the way we work, the nature of the jobs and the list of “most needed competencies”.
– How the “learning professionals” (HR in charge of talents, but also providers of training and university or schools) have integrated those changes both in terms of content (change of curriculum, content of programs, etc.) and in terms of pedagogy (use of technology in the delivery of the programs, but not only).
– The future of the learning landscape, with suggestions on how business schools and corporates can innovate in their relationships.

We would very much like to see you among us on January 23rd. The event will start at 09:30 in 41 North Business School located in the Ferko Signature Building, Floor B4 in Levent.
