We're excited to announce that Chameleon Creator will be attending this year's L&D Innovation and Tech Fest
There aren't many events for L&D folks these days, so we're super excited to be sponsoring the L&D Innovation and Tech Festival in Auckland on the 8th & 9th of June. Not only is there an incredible lineup of speakers sharing their L&D stories and advice from the past 18 months, but we'll be unveiling some of the great new features we've been working hard on, as seen below:
New User Interface
The world has changed. Businesses are demanding. New technologies are emerging. The clock is ticking. And the big L&D shift is on. L&D has moved beyond its operational role and is fast transforming into a core, focused, and disciplined strategic business function. Not only is the content and mechanics of learning being transformed, but also what your people learn, when they learn and how they experience it.
Speakers we're most excited to see
Head of Learning, Douglas Pharmaceuticals Ltd
Vapid to Rapid: Blending Speed, Engagement, and Economy in Learning
So it's finally ok to speak to your businesses about coming out of the classroom into the digital age. But you still don't have the time, money, or fancy digital frameworks and tools to transform your business. Do you flinch every time a large business with deep pockets speaks of augmented reality, virtual reality, learning- in- the- flow- of -work systems – all designed on a single-user license model with huge start-up costs? In every learning partnering conversation, does business demand more of your solutions but not want to invest any time in applying those very solutions? Sound familiar? Douglas Pharmaceuticals has spent the last three years finding a way through this very challenge of time and budget and learned three hard lessons on what a learning team should invest in:
• Creating an army of learning designers – L&D doesn't own the culture of learning.
• Curating organisational wisdom – L&D provides safe spaces.
• Cutting down on learning fluff- L&D gives back time to business.
- Finding the right project – how do we figure out the one project that will give the learning mission its wings?
- Finding the right people – how do we find, coach and reward our early adopters?
- Finding the right tools – how do we build efficiency into our learning plans?
A daydreamer, a book devourer, an eternal optimist, tiger mum, and wannabe air frying champion, Nish has been a facilitator, designer, and performance coach for 20 years now. Balancing fun and function, she supports teams that want to find their collective “best version”. Diagnosing unmet and future needs, and fostering functional conflict, cognitive diversity and safe spaces ignite Nish’s spark every day.

Future Tech and Its Implication for Your Business - Using Technology to Prepare Your Workforce for the Future
Team formation, JD definitions, ways of working, skillsets – these have and will continue to change. In many cases, people are not prepared, and HR teams have not put in place the steps to support this transition.
This presentation will take a close look at practical examples from Vector, highlighting how technology is being used to help us guide this transition and move people towards future ways of working.
Three key takeaways:
- Thought-provoking questions to take back to their teams to help guide their strategies
- Examples of technology usage at Vector used to move the culture forward
- How important the balance of people and technology is and optimising the best of both

Opening Keynote: Culture and Connection: How Free-Range Working Has Changed Our Employee Relationship With Learning & Development
- To enable your workplace to be truly flexible and responsive to employees ‘work anywhere' needs, you need to stop ‘pushing' courses and let employees ‘pull' the resources they need, when they need them
- Understand your onboarding journey and put your employee at the center of the design: what do they need and when to feel capable, connected, committed and confident to be at their best?
- Think beyond simply moving traditional face-to-face learning events to virtual – the goal is not to share content but to create an experience that delivers value in the moments of learning need.
