Event Details

“It wasn’t raining when I left!”  The future of L&D

Have you ever set off on a journey in the glorious sunshine, sunglasses at the ready, only to find half way through this journey you’re faced with a down pour of torrential rain?  Ending up completely soaked as you reach your final destination!  Our unpredictable weather is notorious across the globe, yet us Brits still seem constantly surprised by its changeability and often appear unprepared!


To experienced L&D professionals, change is the norm, we are conscious about checking the horizon for tell-tale signs, but what about the next generation of Trainers and L&D professionals, how do we prepare them for this unpredictability?  Are traditional Train the Trainer workshops enough to support our successors in an environment and country that is changing rapidly?  How do we ensure they are ready for all weathers? 


(Sunglasses and umbrellas optional!)
