On behalf of Amsterdam Data Science (ADS) and Coursera we would like to invite you to our upcoming event on Digital Transformation, the Future of Work, and Lifelong Learning. The event will take place in Amsterdam on Friday 10 November (09:30-13:00). The programme will feature keynotes from prominent experts, panel discussions, and follow-up Q&A sessions (full programme to be announced shortly).

Today’s leaders see two key barriers to digital transformation: slow-to-change business cultures and difficulty hiring employees with the right skills. This event will provide the enterprise learning community with insights on how organizations can prepare for digital transformation. We’ll also discuss how Learning & Development systems can help individuals and companies keep up with rapidly-changing technologies.

Space is limited, so please register as soon as possible to ensure your spot. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at: amsterdam-event@coursera.org. We look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam!
