The social media bubble is showing no signs of bursting. In fact, most of our social networks are still growing; Twitter’s Vine video app has been shared 2.86 million times on the social network since launching five months ago. Providing learning via your target’s preferred means is a crucial step towards giving training credibility.
Of course people take different approaches, so we look forward to discussing how businesses are using social to aid learning development at 2013 Skillsoft Perspectives next Thursday 20 June.
Our theme this year is “Learning Transformed,” and we plan to discuss issues such as linking learning to business value, maximising learning spend, and the future of organisational learning with some of the most influential UK thinkers and practitioners, from both global corporations and academic institutions.
Lynda Gratton, Professor of Management at London Business School, will lead discussions alongside speakers from the BT Group and Lancaster University Management School. The event, which takes place at 8 Northumberland Avenue, London (just round the corner from Trafalgar Square), will also provide an interactive forum to discuss innovations in learning, plus the chance to network with an exciting mix of influential business and leadership experts.
We’ll also be discussing the key findings of our recent research into how key skills issues might be impacted by the demands of our changing working world. Our panel will look at how new recruits will cope with working in remote, virtual, flexible teams and how vital it is that they start to develop the skills today that they will need to succeed in this new environment.
Make sure you are there to get involved in the debate and question leading minds in the learning field!
