The FWH team will be at the Association for Talent Development conference in Washington DC Monday and Tuesday, as our clients DDI premiere some of our work for them. Later in the week, our sales lead Louisa Spring will be speaking and demoing at VRX up in Boston. Drop us a line if you’d like to meet up!
Greetings from Dublin, where we had a fabulous time speaking at ARVR Innovate. There are a lot of updates to get to, but the biggest news of the last two weeks is definitely the release of the data you see in the subject line. These numbers come from an Oculus presentation at Facebook's F8 conference, and really bear out what we've been saying for ages now -- VR training works.
Think of the cost savings of having a workforce that needed 40% less training time to be ready to do great work. Think of the benefits of employees who are 70% better at their jobs. Coupled with the release of the Oculus Quest, a wireless headset with a lower price point, and the already affordable Oculus Go headset, this is set to push VR training into the mainstream.
Perhaps you're interested but a little unsure where to begin. Lucky for you, we've redesigned and rereleased our workshop offering. We start with the basics and then dig deep into the most pressing problems your organization faces and how VR can solve them. Drop us a line to find out more.
In other news, we got the best team in the business back together to kick off chapter two of our award winning Accenture project. Superstar executive producer Pamela Jaber and Emmy-nominated director Kevin Cornish are back, along with a new team member, writer and subject area expert (and Harvard PhD) Holly Wood. The first chapter has moved people to tears, sparked fierce debates, and been honored at Mobile World Congress and SXSW -- who knows where we'll go with the next one?
We'll also be in Washington, DC next week for the premiere of our piece for DDI at the ATD summit, which bills itself as the world's largest talent development conference. Cortney will be holding meetings May 19-21, so please let us know if you're in the area and would like a demo.
As always, we're happy to schedule a capabilities call if you'd like to find out more.
The FWH team had an amazing time co-hosting the premier women in VR/AR brunch at Tribeca last weekend. We are in town and offering demos for the rest of the fest, drop us a line if you want to chat.
Our piece with Accenture is up for an award at SXSW. Come check it out at the Convention Center on Saturday March 9th or drop us a line to schedule a meeting.
