Have you ever considered how you might use Virtual Reality (VR) to train your team?

Curious to have a sneaky peak at first-hand process-based training programme on VR?

If these are the questions that you have considered within your business, this is the event you are looking for.

In this interactive session you can expect to hear from a VR content developer, an educator, and a business who designed its own VR training programme who will share their learnings and outcomes. You will have the chance to engage with the speakers directly and to discuss how their insights might be applied to your training strategy. There will also be other VR experiences and the opportunity to network and learn from your peers.
