Towards Maturity’s Guide to making the most of World of Learning 2014

The comprehensive event for all aspects of Learning and Development (L&D) takes place 30th September and 1st October at Birmingham’s NEC and offers a dedicated area for technology trialling.

Technology Test Drive Zone

Getting to grips with the latest technology for learning and development isn’t always easy, particularly when there are so many options. Visitors to the World of Learning Conference & Exhibition have the chance to explore the latest innovations at the Technology Test Drive zone.

The Technology Test Drive offers visitors a truly interactive experience in testing the latest innovations in learning technology at their own pace.

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.
