The Informatology Peer awards and Conference

by | Mar 30, 2011 | Articles

At Towards Maturity we are very committed to celebrating excellence and the informal benchmarking that comes from the awards process.

We support a wide range of awards including the e-learning age awards, the Training Journal awards and the Institute of IT Training’s awards and always look forward to sharing best practice that comes from the winners.

With this in mind we wanted to let you know about a new award programme and conference from Informatology  where you get to be the judges! (deadline for registering interest in the award programme is 15th April).

It’s not often that you would see Miles Templeton , Director General of the IOD, Ruby Wax and our very own Nick Shackleton Jones and Clive Shepherd and perhaps YOU on the same conference agenda.

Do take a look and get involved!

Are you involved in a project or initiative that could interest others in HR and in L&D?

If so, Informatology invite you to enter for the 2011 Peer Award for Excellence. As a finalist, you would be invited to speak at the Peer Conference on 21, 22 or 23 June in London.

What’s special is that it is a “Peer” Award, because conference attendees listen to your ideas and then determine the winner.

The Peer Conference is not like other conferences
It is about having real conversations with the speakers and fellow participants. It is not about sitting through a day packed with talks.

The Peer Award is not like other awards
It is about expressing your ideas, and gaining the recognition of conference participants that hear you speak. It is also about possibly winning a prestigious national business award.

Some key facts…

Women in Work and Learning

Today is international Women’s Day; the annual occurrence that seeks to revel in how far women have come, and address how far they have left to go in the battle for gender equality. By celebrating what women have achieved, whilst highlighting the continuing inequalities they face, today plays a vital role in shedding light on women, their opinions and their experiences in life. We want to contribute to this insight and explore how you could make work place learning more effective by tapping in to the behaviours and ambitions of women in your company.
