Sven animated the L&D team of AG Insurance with a relevant and to-the-point keynote, and provided us with insights as to how we can pair the fun of gaming with learning. This has already inspired us to offer more gamified learning experiences in the future.
Within PSA/MPET/ATS we are considering various forms of learning to take our people to a higher level and one of these is Game Based Learning. This session has absolutely given me the foundations I need and even a bit more.
