What ideas are L&D most excited about in 2021? And what impact has Covid-19 had on perceptions within our industry?

This week on the Good Practice Podcast, Ross D and Owen are joined by Donald Taylor to dig through the results of this year's Global Sentiment Survey. We discuss:

  • the emergence of reskilling/upskilling as a priority for L&D
  • the extent to which Covid-19 has amplified or disrupted trends from the past few years
  • predictions for the year ahead
