Race Ahead Conclave – Speedy growth with the power of learning

Posted on Posted in Archive Events, Physical


Scaling up business and racing ahead of competition are key challenges for the tech industry in India – be it a traditional company or a member of India’s burgeoning new start-up eco-system. Continued growth will depend on the industry staying relevant by keeping pace with fast-evolving technology trends. In this scenario, bridging the technology skills gap with the power of learning can help you meet the challenge of scale and competitive differentiation.

To accelerate business growth, it’s imperative for companies to build the right capabilities, thanks to increasing competition, and a growing digital eco-system. This requires identifying and hiring a workforce with the relevant skills, retaining them and more importantly, investing in continually building up their skills and capabilities. Companies must ensure all-round and holistic development across different roles within their organization.

The Race Ahead Conclave, presented by Pluralsight, will provide companies with a perspective on how new-age, smart technology-based learning platforms coupled with stellar curated content – all at one place – can help you race ahead of competition and accelerate business growth with the power of learning.
