Our preview of this year’s Learning Live conference and exhibition

leanring liveAs we get banners packed, leaflets stacked and ourselves transported to London, we wanted to share with you some of the things we’re looking forward to at this year’s LPI Learning Live event. Video has always been a major feature of our programmes and this year, we are extending our capability with some exciting partnerships powering in the coming weeks.  So we’ll certainly be listening to this year’s keynote speaker with great interest. BBC presenter Spencer Kelly, who is described as a pioneer for new forms of interactive broadcasting, will be exploring the latest in learning technologies and their impact in the workplace will include LiveChats with “celebrities” streamed across the web. As Willow’s roots (excuse the pun) are firmly in knowledge sharing and collaboration, the ‘International Thinktank’, sponsored by our friends at Cisco, promises to be a great opportunity for the learning community to share insights and lessons.  At such a vibrant and exciting time for L&D, these networking opportunities are becoming even more critical in ensuring the profession continues to meet and exceed learner expectations.  Really hoping plenty of people take part and for those of you based in the South West, Willow and Cisco are supporting free networking events for CLOs through our CLONetwork SouthWest initiative.  So come and find us at stand 26 if you want to find out more.

An oldie but a goodie! – Cisco’s telepresence

A number of our clients are starting to use telepresence more widely and are getting great results.  For those of you that will do anything avoid video conferencing and haven’t yet seen telepresence in action, get set to think again. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQnffi6tN0g]
