During this episode of The Lurnist Show we talked with two L&D experts about the impact of COVID on the industry, how you can use L&D to recruit and retain top talent, and tips for how to build an L&D consulting business.

 It was a great show with a lot of GOOD nuggets of information.  My key takeaways from this show:

 Build your courses around the learner, not what YOU think they need to learn (i.e. don't make assumptions when building courses, find out what they need)

 In the future, learners are going to want to DO, not be lectured to.  This is very similar to what we discussed during my show with Naomi Harm - so the industry needs to get ready for this

 Universities have a lot to catch up on if they want to stay relevant.  Competition is emerging fast, and its changing daily
