Event Details

Target Group

This workshop is by invitation only and is dedicated to corporate learning and corporate HR practitioners from companies. Free of charge for EFMD member companies and special guests (special guest = ONE free seat to attend ONE workshop for discovery for non-members).


Learning and development have long been a key strategy enabling function by building the mindset, knowledge and skills necessary to execute strategy. Besides helping individuals navigate their professional careers within a given framework.

Increasingly, talent development evolves into an agent of corporate transformation, becoming more of an organisational development function, pulling many levers enabling adaptive change.

This requires a systemic view and an understanding of how learning, coupled with select other forces, can drive fundamental change in an organisation.

During our Sharing Best Practice workshop, David Jestaz, VP Faurecia University, will share how Faurecia University engages all 110 000 Faurecians on their transformational journey through three levers:

  1. develop a narrative as a guideline for various activities to help leaders explain, engage and motivate people;
  2. build a comprehensive learning offer for all to understand and practice the technology & knowledge revolution faced by the automotive industry;
  3. organise a larger diffusion of agile methods to increase the speed of innovation and integrated client solutions.

Under the theme “Learning at the heart of corporate transformation,” the Sharing Best Practice workshop will be Hosted by Faurecia University, from 21 (evening) – 22 March in Paris.

Join us and be among the first to discover a one of a kind experience, Faurecia’s “Transformer Box” – a unique tool developed to encourage teams to get collectively engaged.

The Faurecia experience will be enriched by other companies’ cases, conceptual inputs from Capgemini, Engie and Parker Hannifin. You will discover related design thinking applications and connect in interactive small groups.
