Corporate Learning

& Development

Get a broad overview and deep perspectives on corporate L&D and what it means for your business

Learn what matters in times of change

The war for talent is raging. The companies that are able to attract, maintain and develop talent in sustainable ways are going to win. In the fast-moving knowledge economy and global markets, the price for talent is highly competitive. This involves many more build-or-hire decisions for modern companies. 


Today companies to a larger extent have to develop in-house talent. Navigating the new skills agenda entails an in-depth understanding of learning and the role of technology for business including specialized professional competencies, people and social skills. Innovation and having the right mindset to carry it out will set you apart from the competition.   

The future of learning in companies is a shared responsibility but L&D plays a central role. The whole organization is accountable for the corporate learning culture. Getting the job done and preparing for the future at the same time, will continue to be the main task for learning in any organization. 

Learning & Development has for too long consisted of classroom training, expensive MBA’s, e-learning, corporate academies etc. Future learning will be more social, more distributed, more complex and with the goal of creating impact. We see it happen in the most forward-thinking organizations now. 


This network is primarily for HR-decision makers and practitioners of learning, organizational development, leadership training, change management and people analytics. The purpose is informal knowledge-sharing that leads to better understanding, decisions and action with regards to how organizations grow, develop and achieve their goals.



The network is hosted by CopenX and facilitated by Mathias Lund Schjøtz. We will support you in your development and networking with other corporate learning professionals.  

Mathias Lund Schjøtz has a background in journalism and the media industry but turned to corporate learning and development. For the past 5 years, he worked his way through learning technology, edtech and leadership. Using this experience to consult, sell and implement learning. He is working closely with some of the best minds in technology, the science of education and business. Among his projects has been working with DTU on improving workplace learning and higher education more broadly.


Mathias combines entrepreneurship, consulting and research within learning and he is part of the Board of Edtech Denmark which he co-founded in 2018.
