Description

Success at work often comes down to difficult conversations. Do you wish your learners had a safe way to learn by doing? Imagine the possibilities for leadership, sales, and customer service if your learners could practice high-stakes interpersonal skill. With immersive VR, it’s now possible to deliver such training at scale. Powered by a blend of AI and live human interaction, mixed reality VR has become the ideal way to gain essential skills in the workplace. It combines true human intelligence with the consistency, customizability, and scalability of AI, unlocking potential in your workforce and ensuring organizational readiness to perform. 
 
Together we will explore:
  • How immersive simulations engage auditory, visual, and kinesthetic learning
  • How organizations are leveraging VR in areas like leadership development, customer service, and sales enablement   
  • How organizations are elevating the conversation around soft skills through immersive VR
