Training 2010, the IITT Conference, 8th September, London

I’m delighted to be opening the IITT Conference once again this year. This is the annual gathering of the institute of which (since February this year) I’ve been proud to be chairman.

The conference features an opening keynote from Bob Mosher (pictured), 8 interactive conference sessions and 4 workshops. The aim of the conference is to continue building a coherent sense of professionalism in learning among delegates and among the wider IITT membership – as well as providing practical learning to take away for immediate use!

I’ve long argued that the learning and development field needs to become more professional, and at the conference we’ll be announcing some developments towards this goal. However, change takes time, and it is essential that the Institute continues to deliver while growing the profession, to serve the membership and to foster its individual and collective development.

Our membership is wider than our name the Institute of IT Training might suggest, and the conference programme reflects that fact. Topics covered include:

  • working with the business
  • action learning
  • social learning
  • webinars
  • presentation skills
  • how to create great elearning

And in all sessions the emphasis is on working together. The main sessions will all be delivered cafe style, and the workshops will be small-scale and interactive. They will be delivered by Sheena D Whyatt, Christian Janssens, Rob Hubbard and Neil Lasher.

Altogether it’s a combination of a superb day of learning preceded by a wonderful evening of dining at the Marriott, Grosvenor Square, with a chance to network and catch up with peers in the industry. To find out more, have a look at the conference schedule and the exhibitors.

 I hope to see you there!
