9th annual Global Learning Summit to take place in SIngapore

11 November 2015


On its 9th year, the Global Learning Summit, Salvo Global’s flagship event, is back to enlighten today’s corporate professionals with the latest business trends and practices which will be held on the 7th to 9th of March 2016 in Singapore.

The need to invest in corporate learning and development has never been higher. With the cutthroat competition from companies globally and unavoidable risks and changes in the market, progress in business is becoming more challenging each day. One of the most significant factors that affect progress is human capital.

According to the 2015 Global Human Capital Trends report published by Deloitte, the importance of learning has increased three-times fold over the previous year, making a whopping leap from 9% to 28%. Furthermore, it is said that HR organisations and HR skills are not up to par to the business demands, making developing human resources (HR) an alarming issue. With these in mind, the Global Learning Summit aims to discuss the latest industry trends and practices that can help organisations in their business endeavors.

This year, the event focuses on optimizing learning return of investment, developing and managing leaders and talents across generations for sustainable growth, improving learning management systems, and building sustainable leaning cultures.
