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 third 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 eXchanges 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 eXchanges 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)

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.
