Learning leaders share insights on change at CIPD L&D Show


NEWS: Learning leaders will be talking about the action L&D professionals can take to improve business impact during a series of interviews at the CIPD Learning and Development Show (L&D) 2016.

Elearning provider, Sponge is hosting the sessions in support of the #MakeItHappen campaign organised by research and benchmarking organisation, Towards Maturity.

The campaign is aimed at providing practical insights and resources to help L&D professionals focus on one area of action that will help them deliver impact in 2016.

Some of the UK’s leading L&D professionals and thought leaders will be sharing their insights on how to turn aspiration into action during the show.

Sponge is a Towards Maturity Ambassador and works with the independent organisation to promote research, change and good practice across the industry.

Louise Pasterfield, Managing Director of Sponge, said:

“The Make It Happen campaign is all about taking small steps towards a much bigger goal. We thought it would be helpful to hear from some of the people supporting the drive for change. We will be asking them to share some ideas and tips on positive action during this year’s CIPD L&D Show. We hope it will help inspire people to respond to the challenges facing our industry.”

The CIPD Learning and Development Conference and Exhibition takes place on May 11 and 12 at Olympia, London and brings together learning professionals, experts, practitioners and suppliers.

The #MakeItHappen interviews will take place at Sponge’s stand 409 in the main exhibition hall and will be shared on social media during and after the event.

The guests are:

Day One (May 11)

  • Teresa Rose, E.ON
  • Paul Morgan, Telefonica UK
  • Jane Hart, Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies

Day Two (May 12)

  • Andy Lancaster, CIPD
  • Dr Itiel Dror, University College London
  • Laura Overton, Towards Maturity

A schedule of interview times will be published during the show via @Sponge_UK on Twitter.

Towards Maturity will also be launching the 2016 Benchmark Study at the CIPD L&D Show. It is Europe’s largest, most comprehensive independent study of corporate learning.
