Presentation Synopsis: Corporations invested $87.6B (Source: Training Magazine) on Training in 2018. Current technology and design in the industry makes learning dull, costly, and restricts the ability to learn in an effective way. Investing in AR/VR/MR can help solve all of these problems, while helping learners increase knowledge retention and speed up their time to competency. Training/Educating employees has the most use cases and greatest potential for the technology according to a study done by Harvard Business Review. However, many Retail companies have not implemented or even put this technology on their roadmap. In this talk, we will review our learning strategy and use cases for the Retail environment.

Concurrently, they are taking on the industry through the utilization of technology to disrupt and design learning that is different from what we have experienced today. They are on a mission to eliminate boring and ineffective learning! Jonathan has had the pleasure of leading teams up to 250 that span the entire country with operating revenues of $14B.
