Looking ahead to #LearningLive 2016

LEARNING LIVE LOGOThere’s a distinct ‘back to school’ vibe around here this week. After an August where I didn’t go on holiday, but seemingly everybody else did, it’s all of a sudden noisy on my networks again. And I have the first event of the new ‘school year’ to look forward to: Learning Live, the annual conference of the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI).

I’ll be tweeting from some hotly anticipated sessions, including:

Jane Bozarth: Show your work: the payoffs and how-tos of working out loud

I wouldn’t miss Jane’s session for anything. As well as being lively and funny, she is also an expert who walks the walk, working and implementing her ideas in the real world. Since joining Fosway, I have been working out loud more across the team because that’s the culture there which I think is great. I would like to share more on my blog etc though, so am looking forward to some good tips here. Follow Jane on Twitter here if you don’t already.

Michelle Parry-Slater: The value of free: creating fantastic learning assets

Michelle is another expert who walks the walk. What I love most is her incredibly practical advice. So this session for those in L&D on a budget should be a cracker. If you haven’t seen her #NoPlasters and #TheWhole100 series, be sure to check them out. And you can follow her here.

Joe Tidman: Delivering an agile global learning strategy

Joe is not someone I know, but the title of his session caught my eye. I feel that L&D *needs* to become more agile. Organisations across the board do. And if learning can really achieve this, it’s future will be bolder and brighter in my opinion. So I’m fascinated to join this interactive session to find out more on Joe’s thinking. Follow him on Twitter here.

Julian Stodd: The socially dynamic organisation

I can barely keep up with the pace at which Julian’s brain works. He is so prolific and smart that I feel privileged whenever I am merely in his presence. I love the way he is pushing boundaries around social learning and can’t wait to here more about his vision for wher he feels organisations should be heading. Try and keep up with him here.

Sarah Lindsell: PwC – Getting practical

There’s a trend with my session choices. Because Sarah is another expert who is walking the walk 100%. What she’s doing at PwC is inspirational for other learning teams looking to embrace the shift to digital. Her recent interview on Learning Now TV is a short teaser for what I know will be an insightful, pragmatic session based on real world experience. You can also follow Sarah here.

It was tough to choose which sessions to attend. View the full programme here.
