In this presentation, we’ll review a creative way to approach the issue using product strategy thinking — one that our own business has used.

As the digital experience proliferates in everyday life and we begin to migrate into the new virtual reality medium, how do we create the most human and organic digital experience?
Moving forward, digital devices not only grow smaller and closer to the body, but daily use time explodes. The challenge is using design strategies around user experience to mitigate consumer pain points to allow for seamless immersion in your experience or VR product.
We will talk about how about how design must be incorporated as a process and strategy in VR builds for success.
Join us April 27th for a panel discussion on how to put the human first while creating for Virtual Reality. Part of the VR/AR BrightTALK Summit, our panelists will exchange on how to take user and audience in consideration during the Virtual Reality creation process.
As Virtual Reality is getting more and more exposure, it is time to highlight the right practices of designing a Virtual Reality project and see what we can do to put the human first.
- Do Virtual Reality creators consider the audience they address before/while developing their projects? Why is this crucial? How and when to do so?
- Are we more careful today to offer more accessible VR experiences than a year ago?
- How is this evolving? Do studios and creators tend to integrate more the human in the creation process?
The panel will be led by Amandine Flachs, Events and Communication manager at the Realities Centre. She will be joined by a variety of Virtual Reality leaders, including creators, game developers, agency and B/B professionals.

Augmented, mixed, and virtual reality compose a spectrum for next-gen computing that is disrupting or accelerating the business objectives of companies across almost every industry.

While many companies and institutions understand the need to investigate AR and VR, the path to success is a long one. Often, there are several teams at a single company looking at ways to leverage this technology, for internal processes as well as customer- and consumer-facing solutions.
This panel will explore ways to effectively bring this vision to fruition:
• Identifying the right use cases
• Getting internal buy-in and budget
• Finding development resources
• Rolling out new AR/VR processes and products
Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) is a subject that is front of mind in all our organisations – we know that it is the only way of ensuring access and retention of the best talent. While there is often leadership support and buy-in, organisations often struggle to be truly inclusive in the implementation, failing to design core business processes around it.
We very much hope you can join us for this webinar to explore this important subject and hear from Stephen Frost and Danny Kalman (co-authors of Inclusive Talent management, published by Kogan Page) about some practical steps and best practice for incorporating inclusiveness and a leadership mind-set into your organisation’s talent management strategies.
Not delegating appropriately or effectively stymies employee development at every level. When managers hoard work, they inadvertently rob next level and high potential employees of growth opportunities. Delegating for development (vs. delegating to offload tasks) requires a new paradigm and 8 easy steps to ensure a smooth transition of work and skill building. We'll cover it all in this workshop, complete with take-away tools to get started.
Have you ever read The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene? This bestselling book, with all its fans and critics, reminds us that life isn’t black and white, and teaches us through 48 laws how to live in the gray areas. Interestingly enough, those in cybersecurity should feel right at home in this gray space.
In this all-women panel discussion, Tamara Dull picks out ten of these 48 laws, and talks with cybersecurity experts to help draw out parallels for women who desire to be more powerful and successful in their cybersecurity (and tech-focused) endeavors.Come prepared to listen, hear differing views, and ask your questions at the end. We’re prepared to have a good time with this one!

The classic way of identifying, developing, testing and rolling out new technology relies on management to identify a bottleneck and set a deadline, product management to scope the issue and develop the requirements and then the development time “sprints” through an agile process to deliver the goods. Once the solution was rolled out, the employees suddenly had another process with which they had to comply.
Now, however, there is a better way. IT and development leaders can crowdsource roadblocks from their audience as well as their teams instead of guessing what to address, which will tell them exactly where technology can automate processes and solutions in order to make it easier for their employees. The result? Solutions employees actually need that are built the best for your organization.
Join Jeff Kunzelman, Chief Technology Officer at POPin, as he discusses how crowdsolving and automation can revolutionize your business. Specifically, expect to takeaway:
•Examination of past and current ways of handling development
•Identification of ways to avoid bottlenecks
•Examples of successful crowdsourcing
•Best practices for technology automation
•Solutions for employee-driven initiatives

In many organizations today, recruiting functions as a tactical, on-demand service that is initiated by hiring managers and plays a supportive role. This state of affairs represents a huge missed opportunity.

3. Distribute hiring accountability across the org to drive results.
4. Create benchmarks to measure and prove talent value.
