Do you remember the days when going to trade shows, conferences, listening sessions, or maybe even trainings happened in-person? Yes, these were all ways to connect with like-minded individuals in our industries, and in full transparency, it was a nice break from sitting in the office. These were times that allowed us to get away from our daily routine while still bringing value to our organizations. The desire for this type of engagement and learning hasn’t changed one bit. According to a survey documented in Human Resources Today, 68% of employees believe training and development is the most important policy in their organization.
However, we all know that much of that has changed over the past 12 -18 months. So, what do all great marketers do? Let’s say it together – we adapt! 🤩 With these opportunities being revamped to become more digitally focused (no pun intended) it still gives all of us the best of both worlds.
