The 2017 LT Awards Shortlist – sharing the magic conjured by today’s L&D teams

by | Sep 12, 2017 | Articles, Featured

Check out the shortlist of nominees for this year’s Learning Technologies Awards – it’s a celebration of everything excellent in L&D.

At Towards Maturity, we love to go out of our way to celebrate with L&D teams who are having success in their organisations. One of the ways we do that, is joining in with awards ceremonies and telling the stories of those who win.

For a number of years, we’ve had a Good Practice Partnership with elearning age, the magazine now owned by Learning Technologies – we’re pleased to say we’re continuing that commitment as the 2017 LT Awards Shortlist is published. As always, a number of the organisations using our Benchmark to improve their performance are featured in the list, along with our Ambassador companies, who enable us to publish our research and deliver Personalised Benchmark Reports for free.

This year’s shortlist is a diverse list of exciting and inspirational examples of what the learning technology industry is able to produce and how it can bring a sea change to how companies operate. We’re really looking forward to writing case studies to bring to you the magic that’s being conjured in L&D departments across the UK and abroad.

We’re excited to see that over 30 out of 180 plus short lists include our Ambassadors and Benchmark participants. We’re delighted that one of our founding Ambassador’s, LEO, has been nominated for six awards including Best learning technologies project – UK public & non-profit sector, an award submission that is shared by another of our Ambassadors, KPMG.

As part of the good practice partnership with the LT awards since they began, we’ve been sharing the secrets of success of award winners since day 1.

The full shortlist for 2017 can be found below, and with the competition attracting entries from more countries than ever before, we anticipate that it’s going to be a very competitive time. Each category is going to need photo finish!

The date you need to get in your diary is 29th November 2017, which is the evening when the winners will be exclusively revealed. The glittering gala evening will be held at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London, UK.

This spectacular black-tie celebration attracts more than 850 guests worldwide from across the learning technologies industry, so don’t forget to book your seat soon.
