Free advice, reports, resources and sessions with conference speakers on stand 45 at #LT12UK 25th and 26th January Olympia, London.

London » 18 Jan 2012

Towards Maturity, the not-for-profit benchmark practice, wants learning and development professionals to think differently about training, drawing on the best advice available in the industry.

Laura Overton, Managing Director will be encouraging the main conference delegates to play an active role in helping their businesses become more agile in 2012. However this will mean challenging preconceived ideas and even past experiences of using learning and technology.

The Towards Maturity team is also providing practical help and direction for visitors to the Learning Technologies event who want to understand the changing face of learning – helping them to make the most productive use possible of their time at this busy and ever-expanding show.

Visitors can download these resources to help them plan their visit to the show and should call at Stand 45 to access these free events and resources:

  •  Think Differently Roadmap – a guide to Towards Maturity Ambassador organisations who are offering free resources, tutorials and apps at the show, and a takeaway infographic to spark ideas and open up conversations after the show
  •  LT eXchange – meet, tweet and network with the conference speakers: in conjunction with Training Journal, Towards Maturity is bringing conference thinking directly to the exhibition floor
  •  Think Differently Top 20 – Towards Maturity has identified the most useful of the free floor seminars: download  a free list

 Special offer: Free Towards Maturity In-Focus Report – to celebrate the launch of a new range of targeted, in-depth reports, ‘Perspectives for Business Leaders’ will be given away to anyone taking up free registration to the TM Research Community at the show itself (stand 45). This mini-report is a briefing that L&D professionals can use to raise the profile of learning technologies with senior managers.
In addition, Towards Maturity will be making a major announcement about an extension of its research services at the show, building on its nine-year track record of producing the leading European Industry Benchmark. Drawing on data from 1,800 organisations, The Towards Maturity Benchmark is considered the most comprehensive independent review of the use of learning technologies in the UK workplace. The 2011-12 report is available for free download at www.towardsmaturity.org/2011benchmark

Laura Overton, Managing Director of Towards Maturity said, ‘Learning Technologies is such a busy and ever-expanding show that it’s easy to miss out on really good ideas and events if you don’t know what you’re looking for. So we’ve organised routes and events for people who seriously want to find out about using learning technologies to dramatically improve business results. Take on the Towards Maturity Challenge, and we guarantee you’ll be think differently about learning afterwards – and have useful insights and practical tools to take home with you.’

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.
