So, what is the eXchange?
Training Journal have teamed up with their research partner Towards Maturity to bring you the Learning and Skills and Learning Technology eXchange on the 29th and 30th of January at Olympia 2.
This is the second year that Learning Technologies and Learning and Skills are hosting an official eXchange to give the learning and development community a chance to meet, network and collaborate at the event. eXchanges will provide a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with speakers from the conference.
The eXchange provides an opportunity for L&D practitioners who are visiting the show to directly meet the conference speakers to exchange practical ideas and experiences around themes being discussed in the conference.
A chance to get up close and personal with conference speakers!
The feedback that we received last year was unanimous: What a great idea! Like all great ideas, it’s simple and straight forward, but incredibly effective. Each eXchanges will take the form of an informal, face-to-face group conversation looking at answers to practical questions that will stimulate innovation and creativity in learning and development. The eXchanges will last over an hour and their USP is that each one will be lead by an industry-leading expert who is speaking at the conference.
Every eXchange will give you unprecendented access to much respected industry leaders and conference speakers. Here’s your moment to air your questions, problems and even solutions to your e-learning colleagues.
eXchange ideas with peers at the conference tweet up!
For those in attendance at both the conference and the exhibitions, the eXchange will also host the event’s official ‘tweet ups’ at 12.45 each day. These scheduled sessions are an informal opportunity for attendees to meet up with existing contacts, network and meet new people.
Who can you meet?
Below are just some of the speakers that you can meet at the eXchange but to avoid disappointment we suggest that you confirm your free space* today by registering here. (please note that this list maybe subject to change)

In the final installment of our ambassador round up series, we speak to Peter Casebow, CEO of Good Practice, about his thoughts on the Transformation Curve.
In order to achieve true and lasting transformation, organisations need to take it one step, one stage at a time, says Piers Lea, chief strategy officer at LEO and Learning Technologies Group plc, and a Towards Maturity ambassador. It’s also what the latest Towards Maturity benchmark report ‘The Transformation Curve’, says when it outlines the four stages of maturity – Optimising Training, Taking Control, Letting Go and Sharing Responsibility.
L&D is in the midst of a rapid transformation driven by fundamental changes in work, the workforce and the workplace. In this fast-changing environment, how can we embed successful leadership development to future-proof our organisations and gain a competitive advantage?
Read about the two things that Ken Govan, from our ambassadors Cegos, particularly likes about ‘The Transformation Curve’, the latest Towards Maturity benchmarking report.
As learning professionals, we want to design interventions that lead to lasting change. Shifting behaviour involves a process that continues long after the programme finishes. Our research has shown that mature learning organisations are more successful at integrating learning and work, but they don’t abandon formal learning. One of their strategies is to design learning campaigns and programmes that build and encourage new habits.
