by | Sep 8, 2014 | Articles

Towards Maturity congratulates all those who have been shortlisted in this year’s e-learning awards!

After a painful wait, the shortlist for this year’s e-Learning Awards was revealed today for the first time via Twitter (#ELAwards) and what a shortlist it is! Well done to Tony Fracina of the E-Learning Network for co-ordinating the independent judging team and whittling down a record number of entries.

We are thrilled to see so many of Towards Maturity’s Ambassadors and benchmark participants have made it onto the list, which reads like a ‘who’s who’ of e-learning excellence. One of our founding benchmark participants, PwC, had 7 shorlist entries and Kallidus, one of our long-standing ambassadors, had 5, including Rob Caul their MD, for outstanding contribution!

The winners will be announced at the Gala Award Dinner at The Marriot Hotel, Grosvenor Square, on the 6th of November. Places will soon run out so book your tickets today!

We love the fact that this year the organisers of the elearning awards organisers have provided a synopsis for each entry, so do check this out.

If this list inspires you for next year, why not take another look at the lesson’s learned from previous award winners.

In the meantime, congratulations to everyone who has made it onto the shortlist and wishing you every success in the next stage!
