Business Educa – for innovative thinking for business professionals   

For the past 3 years Business EDUCA, an integral aspect of the main OEB event, aims to help business delegates achieve organisational results through collaborative intelligence and learning. Now it is your opportunity to get involved.

Business Educa creates a unique opportunity for all business professionals involved in learning innovation. Past delegates have said that it provides

  • Ongoing conversation – new ideas are created and explored throughout the year (take a look at the Learning Scenario Project instigated by Shell in 2011)
  • Collision of worlds that challenges thinking – delegates have a unique opportunity to engage with other sectors and other thinking
  • Informal networking – get up close and personal to top thinkers
  • Energy!!
  • Practical ideas that impact real business results

If you thought that Online Educa Berlin was purely about an academic perspective, then think again!

‘Presenting within the Business Educa stream at OEB for the first time last year provided me with a great opportunity to both benchmark and network with likeminded business professionals. It was great to get feedback on the work that we are doing at Toyota and the whole experience of contributing as part of the programme provided me with new ideas, new contacts and new challenges to take forward into 2012. I would thoroughly recommend other corporates looking for new perspectives to get involved’ Sann René Glaza, Senior Manager, Customer Service Training Center, Toyota Europe

How can you get involved in 2012?

There are plenty of opportunities for Business professionals, with experiences of implementing learning technologies within their own workplaces across Europe and beyond to get involved in the programme itself:

  • Leading an interactive learning cafe around a practical issue of mutual benefit for all
  • Challenging yourself and others through a dynamic 5 minute Ignite session (with just 20 slides and 5 seconds per slide).

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.
