Arianna Huffington

A conversation with Arianna Huffington

Arianna Huffington is the founder and CEO of Thrive Global, the founder of The Huffington Post, and the author of 15 books, including, most recently, Thrive and The Sleep Revolution. In 2016, she launched Thrive Global, a leading behavior change technology company with the mission of changing the way we work and live by ending the collective delusion that burnout is the price we must pay for success.

Why power skills are the future

The fast-changing and unpredictable challenges of work may seem insurmountable. But the learning behaviors of thousands of businesses from around the world on the Udemy Business platform offer a glimpse of the bright future that lies ahead.

In this conversational session, Udemy Business’s CLO, Melissa Daimler will reveal and discuss one of the top trends [power skills], from our 2022 Workplace Learning Trends Report, that is shaping the world of work today and what it means for the possibilities of the future.

Unlock potential with new Udemy Business learning solutions

Get ready to unlock new levels of learning and potential with our recently introduced solutions: Udemy Business Pro and CorpU. Udemy Business Pro is a hands-on, high impact learning solution designed to keep your tech teams ahead of the game and achieve their learning and business outcomes. CorpU offers online, cohort-based leadership development programs that foster collaboration, drive impact, and accelerate organizational growth.

Join us for an overview of each solution and a discussion of why these solutions are critical for the future of global companies.

Combating the Great Resignation with a robust learning program

It’s no secret organizations are losing valuable employees as “The Great Resignation” continues into late 2021/2022. This wave of talent departure is causing major challenges in recruiting new hires and retaining proven talent. This panel discussion between L&D leaders will focus on how their learning programs are key to making a real difference in their workforce—from corporate culture to career satisfaction and talent retention.

Find inspiration and tap into the community

Walk away with actionable insights, a renewed sense of purpose as a learning leader, and a community you can count on when you participate in FWD’s virtual networking session.

Here’s what attendees had to say about last year’s Forward:

“I was thinking about quitting my startup and was feeling so dejected. Coming here I am inspired again and have decided I’m going to keep at it. Thank you for helping me realize this.”
We left the day feeling inspired, motivated, encouraged, and refreshed—which are all the emotions and feelings you’d hope to get out of a professional development opportunity.


See how Udemy Business can help unlock your team’s potential and prepare them for tomorrow.
