CIPD L&D Show 2015 – The new age of L&D

WillowDNA CIPD L&D ShowHaving been to the CIPD L&D show (and its predecessor CIPD HRD) for many years now, the 2015 show marked a shift in theme, with a clear emphasis on the changing role of L&D.   This isn’t a new topic, but what has changed is the amount of focus devoted to it at the show.  From truly effective blended learning, what neuroscience can bring bear on learning design and defining the L&D skill-set, the conversations are focussed more squarely on giving L&D a voice when it comes to the strategic and transformative conversations happening in organisations. I captured my reflections on the key themes in this vlog, so take a look and join in the debate – what is the role of L&D today and what will it need to be in the future?
