by | Jan 19, 2011 | Articles

Learning Technologies at Olympia 2 on the 26th and 27th of January is definitely the UK event not to be missed if you are looking for inspiring ideas (for free!). Here are our 23 reasons to attend!

In addition to the exhibition over 2 floors, there are over 200 seminars to attend and a treasure trove of ideas to be had all for free

We’ve taken a look at the free seminars and have found 22 that have caught our eye (in addition to our own of course!) giving 22 great reasons for taking time out to attend – and the 23rd?

Once you have spent a few hours at the event, you’ll be wanting to sit down and reflect – this year Towards Maturity will be hosting the new coffee area at C25 ,so bring a copy of this article with you and we’ll swap it for a free coffee voucher – so you won’t even have to pay for your drink 🙂

The show will be at Olympia 2 London and registration is completely free – do join us there!

Challenging Perceptions

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.

Having clear evidence is a vital starting point in identifying where improvement is needed and backing up your business case for change. We spoke with Emma Smith, Head of Talent at FirstPort Limited, a residential property management company. She had used the Towards Maturity Learning Health Check in a previous role and has now brought this tool to her new organisation in order to help transform their workplace learning culture.
