Unprecedented social trends on the horizon will make the profession of training and development more important than ever. Our institutions are faced with challenges with no parallel in history: shrinking water tables, global immigration, climate change, skyrocketing healthcare costs. The world needs leaders now, to do that which has never been done.

These leaders won’t just appear - the must be trained and developed. The need for education of new skills and mindsets is staggering. Even the needs are changing every day as the global economic system shifts before our very eyes. Eric Garland, a futurist and consultant to leaders around the globe, presents a dialogue about how the training industry has the opportunity to shape our common future - and what you can do today!
