This 1-day programme is for Learning& Development specialists and others who are interested in the future of learning, and how this is impacted by energy transition and transformation, a bipolar (or multi-polar) world, an unstable financial system, the digital revolution and increased market complexity and price uncertainty. Meanwhile, you will be served with guided tours (visiting the exchange trade surveillance room, a presentation from an energy broker, and listening to an algo trader who explains his activities). This all takes place from our office, in the Euronext exchange building, allowing you also to exchange thoughts with Entrima’s management and staff.
