VII Annual Meeting of Corporate Academies

19.11.2022 | 09h30 - 13h00 | Centro Cultural de Belém

Learning with a Purpose - A World of Opportunities for People and Organisations


Under the motto "Learning with a Purpose - A Universe of Opportunities for People and Organisations", this year's Corporate Academies Meeting is centred around the analysis and discussion of the challenges and future prospects for Corporate Academies and Learning areas as strategic elements, purpose activators and business enhancers in organisations.

With the pandemic period behind us, a time when many Learning areas were forced to reinvent themselves, new challenges, responsibilities and tremendous possibilities for growth now lie ahead. With this undeniable recognition, how can Training Academies and Learning areas uplift themselves strategically and what role will they play in defining and implementing the purpose of its organisations? What new strategies and practices can be developed in the coming years to achieve even more agile, strong, ambitious, aligned and prepared training structures to evolve with organisations and their purpose?

This meeting will feature a panel of highly experienced speakers who, in the spirit of sharing new ideas and exchanging experiences among professionals, will answer these questions and present their current and future perspectives for Corporate Academies and Learning areas.

 We thank you in advance for contributing to the Questionnaire on "The Present and the Future of Corporate Academies", through the following link, the results of which will also be analysed at the Meeting.
