One of the many positive things about being the chair of the Learning and Performance Institute is the chance to support great work in our field.
I can’t respond positively to every invitation and opportunity, but do enjoy, where possible, supporting some great initiatives for the L&D profession.
One initiative I’m pleased to support this year is Alfred Remmits‘ Learning Journey 2014. Alfred is arranging for a group from Europe to attend Elliott Masie’s Learning 2014 conference and is surrounding the event with talks and site visits (including Sears and McDonald’s Universities) to make it a great opportunity to learn from fellow chief learning officers. Elliott’s events are certainly worth attending: the keynote in 2013 was Hillary Clinton. This year it’s Sir Ken Robinson.
Although I am delivering one of the talks – 21st Century Skills for L&D – I have no financial interest in this, just a strong belief that this sort of collaborative activity, where we properly get to know colleagues over a series of days, is a great way of building networks and developing both ourselves and the profession.
If you’d like to know more about taking advantage of Learning 2014, please contact Alfred directly. You can find his email and phone number on the last page of this PDF which explains the Learning Journey 2014 in more detail:
