The Strategic L&D podcast delves into what key L&D opinion leaders are doing today to ensure they deliver a strategically impactful L&D function

Online PR News – 03-September-2022 – Canberra – Earlier this year, Pursuit Technology jumped headfirst into the strategic L&D movement with the launch of Acorn Labs, a space on the web for the latest research and findings from industry leading learning professionals. A new part of Acorn Labs launched just this week – The Strategic L&D Podcast. Hosted by Pursuit’s Managing Director and Co-Founder Blake Proberts, The Strategic L&D podcast delves into what key L&D opinion leaders are doing today to ensure they deliver a strategically impactful L&D function.

The Strategic L&D podcast covers a wide array of content areas including aligning learning strategy to business strategy, what learning strategies best remedy identified organisation under-performance, how to execute on leading practices in L&D strategy and how to ensure L&D is seen as a strategic partner to the business.

Pursuit launched The Strategic L&D Podcast as a way for L&D practitioners to have a space that’s focused on learning how to drive further maturity in their L&D strategies from peers. The podcast is a perfect fit for Pursuit’s company focus to help HR, L&D and WFP leaders use data to prove their strategic impact, a rather difficult feat.

“We have learnt so much from having conversations with amazing peers in our industry,” said Blake Proberts (Co-Founder and Managing Director). “I am very excited to bring these conversations to the public and hopefully provide insights into some incredible companies L&D strategies, including what has and hasn’t worked.”

The Strategic L&D Podcast is always interested in hearing from new guests who’d like to appear on the show. If you’re working in the L&D space and value a strategic approach, you can reach out to us here: hello@acornlms.com.
