Laura Overton wins coveted Colin Corder Award @ IT Training Awards for services to IT Training

It’s not every day that a member of the Towards Maturity team wins a top award at the IT Training Awards, so we are very proud to announce that Laura Overton won the coveted Colin Corder award for her outstanding contribution to IT Training at the IT Training Awards 2010 held at The Dorchester Hotel on Thursday 4th February.

In announcing the award Colin Steed, Chief Executive at the Institute of IT Training said that: “Laura has been an influential voice in the IT training industry for many years, and this award recognises her outstanding work, achievement, and contribution to advancing the training profession. She is a tremendous ambassador for the training profession and for over 20 years Laura has helped organisations make the most of their use of workplace learning technologies, as well as working with government bodies and initiatives in the skills field to help them be as successful as possible. Co-author of a significant study into effective e-learning practices in the workplace, published by e-skills UK in February 2007, Laura is a very popular and well-respected industry commentator, and is a popular and much read writer in all the leading training journals”.

Laura works tirelessly on behalf of all of those involved in using learning technologies in the workplace to deliver value. Her passion is for learning and seeing it directly contribute to organisational performance. The alignment of learning, through the use of learning technologies, to key business objectives is something that she has championed for many years. Her boundless energy, enthusiasm and tenacity is something that we’ve come to expect at Towards Maturity but it is particularly gratifying to see her efforts recognised by winning this prestigious award.

On behalf of all of those who subscribe to Towards Maturity in support of our key aims and goals, we would like to offer our sincere congratulations to Laura on this achievement.

We’d also like to recognise all the other award winners and congratulate them on their achievements. You can find details of all the other award winners via a Training Press Release here.

Challenging Perceptions

The corporate learning market is rapidly evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of work and worker. The C-suite and L&D leaders can no longer ignore that over 90 percent of organizations do not realize the full value of their investments.

All you need is Evidence

All you need is Evidence

Every year over $400billion is spent on corporate learning globally, yet only 15% is proven to stick. Investments in learning are continuing to grow year on year but performance impact is not changing. The industry is still struggling to provide real proof of impact, in fact, for the first time the Towards Maturity Index is tracking a significant decline. This is causing leaders to have low confidence levels in L&D.
