Cornerstone founder and CEO Adam Miller will present the opening keynote on Tuesday, 13 November at 09:00 am GMT, where he will discuss how the fourth industrial revolution is dramatically transforming the workforce landscape and how organisations can attract, develop and retain talent to thrive in an economy that will soon be entirely skills-based.
Vincent Belliveau, executive vice president and general manager EMEA, Cornerstone OnDemand, will also be on the mainstage with inspirational clients that will walk through examples of how they are designing the right employee experience and driving agility. Nestlé, Saint-Gobain, Sanofi, Coca-Cola HBC, and Proximus will be among those sharing their stories on how they have transformed HR and talent development in their organisations.
