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…

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.
