Implementing Learning Systems at Scale - Winning Buy-In and Driving Change
Date Friday, Dec 7 Time – Room Bishop
Deploying a learning technology solution requires a lot more than simply turning on a system. It needs planning, buy-in, regular communications and a system of collecting and using feedback to ensure that expectations are identified, met and - ideally - exceeded. Join this Panel to understand some of the crucial techniques that will help your next implementation succeed. Among others, speakers will include:
Jon Kennard is digital editor of TJ, with a decade's experience in learning and development and 15 years in digital publishing.
Having studied maths at university, Jon gained digital media experience working for record labels and other media companies in the early 2000s, before becoming a freelance writer and social media consultant a decade later.
With one parent who worked as a university lecturer and the other a management consultant, coupled with his own professional development in media, Jon thinks L&D publishing for business is the job he was always going to do.
Based on his own unconventional career progression he says "you never know when or where you might discover something that changes the way you work and think, so always be available to learn".
