Focus London: How to grow the skills your organisation needs to succeed
At one of our only full-day Focus events, learning and development experts gathered together in London to help demystify learning and skills.
Developing skills and unleashing people’s potential are critical to energising, empowering and retaining them, and creating an organisation that is a beacon for in demand talent.
But many organisations are struggling to recalibrate their L&D operations to effectively develop people’s capabilities at scale. They are unsure how to enable learning that powers the knowledge, skills and behaviours that are required now and into the future.
In this talk, David Perring, Director of Research at Fosway Group, will explore how L&D teams can develop skills at scale. He will explore:
• Why learning is underperforming
• How an ecosystem approach can successfully support people development
• The secret to driving sustainable learning engagement
• The features of a modern learning experience that scale, and drive skills for today’s teams and tomorrow’s success
David has been a learning professional for over 30 years. Over that time, he has always been at the fore-front of learning innovation and has retained a strong sense of optimism, energy and passion for transforming organisational learning and performance.
Today, he holds a truly unique and privileged position. As Director of Research for Fosway Group, he independently explores the experiences of practitioners and suppliers to understand the realities of what’s happening in corporate learning, talent development and HR. Inspiring change by sharing what truly makes a difference.
Much of his insight is drawn from the deep research he conducts for Fosway, but equally, if not more importantly, his expertise is rooted in his own practical and personal experience of continuously improvement of organisations people strategies and technologies.
