Improve performance at Business Educa Berlin

by | Oct 28, 2010 | Articles

We are at a stage where innovative thinking isn’t just about being fashionably ahead of the curve, it is becoming a necessity for survival.

Our existing ideas need to be challenged and we need to be open to new approaches  and that is one of the reasons I am so pleased to be involved in the steering board of Online Educa Berlin which is now in it’s sixteenth year!

OEB is unique in its focus on bringing individuals together from the corporate, pubic and education sectors to Every year over 2000 participants from more than 90 countries world-wide come together, making it the most comprehensive annual meeting place for technology-supported learning and training professionals in Europe.

It has always provided rich networking opportunities but in 2010, it is creating a really special networking and learning opportunity for those who are working in business:

New for 2010 – Business educa

Senior business managers don’t want learning, they want results. Business EDUCA focuses on achieving organisational results through collaborative intelligence and learning. OEB designed Business EDUCA for organisations large and small, non-profit and bottom-line driven. Network with peers, and solve problems cooperatively. Business EDUCA is about getting things done in organisations. It’s not academic. It draws from practice, innovation and research and focuses on outputs rather than inputs.

Business EDUCA provides the opportunity to explore, discuss, debate the latest issues facing organisations today. The sessions allocate time to collaborate with colleagues both on line and in person to create a programme unique tailored for each participant.

Subjects to be discussed include

  • Improving business impact with mobile learning
  • Improving performance in health
  • Innovative approaches to boosting sales and customer loyalty
  • The 21st century learning professional
  • Working smarter with learning networks
  • Coping with the crunch – how can we REALLY deliver more with less
  • & much more!!

Business Educa provides an amazing opportunity to connect with those who most of us normally only follow on Twitter  (see below for some of the amazing speakers).

Naturally we will be covering the hot topics on the TM site but it isn’t the same as being there yourself – try as we might we can’t magic up the atmosphere of Berlin at christmas time!

Do let us know if you are coming – we’d love you to join us!

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.
