Launched in 2011, the Exchange programme was a collaboration between Learning Technologies and Towards Maturity. The aim was to create a forum to share best practice, thought leadership and to encourage and stimulate innovation in L&D. Each Exchange is facilitated, and led by an industry-leading expert, who as well as speaking at the conference will join us on the exhibition floor to share more focused insights.
Bookings are now being taken. To encourage a rich and diverse dialogue, priority will be given to L&D practitioners in the workplace so please register with your work email. Each Exchange session can be followed on Twitter using the hashtag: #LT19ex

We have reached a pivotal point in the development of the L&D industry, where we need to make some hard decisions and critical changes if we are to remain effective. The actions we are taking at present, are often ineffective as they rarely create any lasting business impact. Right now, we are failing to show the value we possess to business leaders and lacking credibility with learners. So our approach to learning needs to adapt along with the times as we embrace the new year!
The point of learning in the workplace is to ultimately establish and develop skills within learners that help organisations to adapt and thrive. Saying that, with only 15% of L&D professionals reporting to have noticed positive changes in staff behaviour, it is clear that the extent to which learning is having an impact on subsequent actions is insufficient.1 The very nature of the L&D role is to instill new knowledge and behaviours into learners which they can apply in order to do their jobs more efficient and effectively. But at present this is lacking. So how do we ensure the behaviour of our learners change and learning is applied in practice?
Since launching our latest market insight, culture has been the most topical and provoked the more curiosity, yet, only 1 in 5 organisations manage to create a high performing learning culture today, and out of those that do, only 2 in 3 are successful in maintaining it. Although it seems only a few are able to sustain this level of success, it is definitely worth the effort, as learning cultures can result in 9x higher impact on engagement and performance.
Every day your employees face dozens of clients, managers, reports and projects competing for their attention. With 55% of workers saying they lack time to learn, it is clear heading into 2019 that we need to apply some fresh forward-thinking to recapture the attention of the learners and revive their passion for learning.
With only 21% of learning professionals successfully harmonising learning across their organisation, it is clear that whatever methods we are using at present to take learning to scale are largely failing.
