Breakfast with James Coddington, SkillsVR
Friday, 26 August 2022 (8:00 AM - 9:30 AM) (NZST)
James, Founder and Co-CEO of Skills VR, started the business in 2013 with the goal to change people’s lives through the teaching of life and business skills by giving individuals the opportunity to own and run their own business. This experience highlighted the massive skills gap that was evident for job seekers as well as the challenges individuals had in acquiring the necessary skills to be employable.
Traditional education was not working, we needed to find a new way to deliver training that is fun, engaging and immersive that delivers very high learning outcomes. We believe that everyone has a right to valued employment, regardless of education, literacy or location and that coupled with the current skills training methods being outdated and failing the business community – SkillsVR was born.
Join us to hear from James about his work and vision for the future of workplace learning. Then pop into the VR Zone at the Empower Te Rangapikikōtuku Coding and Esport Festival to see VR learning in action.
