Watch John Donovan, CEO of AT&T Communications, sit down with Sebastian Thrun, Executive Chairman at Udacity, to discuss how to lead through change, leverage your employees to turn invention into innovation, and provide teams the skills needed to build tomorrow’s companies.

Watch as they discuss:
• Key lessons and learnings from AT&T
• Why you need to invest in your workforce development
• How companies can reskill their workforce to be competitive

The hard reality is that a lack of relevant skills is the number one barrier organizations face for digital transformation. AT&T recognized this early on and quickly worked to position itself as a leader in tech innovation. This reinvention meant that they had to source skilled talent quickly, leading to a massive upskilling initiative within the company.
