Executive Director, Learning & Organisational Development APAC

10:10 AM Keynote Presentation – Restructuring the L&D Function to Establish Strategic Business Partnerships and Technology’s Impact on Learning

Atlassian recently restructured their L&D function to reflect the modern learner and meet business needs. A key aspect of the restructure has been the integration of L&D into the HRBP model, bridging the gap in L&D’s capability to make informed strategic decisions. Greater workforce insight and more multi-facet engagement present the opportunity to rise to the Executive level and have sway in strategic decisions.
  • Integrating L&D into the HRBP model and nurturing those business relationships
  • Capable people in L&D who understand the “bigger picture” can make more informed decisions about business strategy, thus generating credibility and trust as a strategic business partner
  • How greater workforce insight gives you that edge and exposure to the bigger picture – the stepping stone to becoming a CLO and strengthening your relationship with leadership
  • Technology and the modern digital learner – how it impacts learning and the design of training
