We’re pleased to announce the following seminar speaker sessions from LEO, taking place during the event:
“Getting value out of learning impact measurement”
Imogen Casebourne (Director of Learning)  and Peter Dobinson
Theatre 4 Wednesday 1st February, 10.15-10.45

In 2016 and early 2017, LEO and Watershed conducted research in Europe and the US to look at some key issues:

  • the pressure from leadership to measure business impact of learning
  • the appetite in L&D to measure learning using big data
  • the main blockers to progress

Slowly but surely the business demand to show evidence is becoming an important part of the L&D world. Is this true in your organisation? In this seminar, Imogen Casebourne and Peter Dobinson of LEO will take you through some of the options now available with the advent of new technologies such as xAPI. These range from powerful integrated systems to some of the much more simple approaches you may want to consider initially. We will also cover the five fundamental questions you should be asking before you get started with an impact measurement initiative.

“Learning innovations from a changing landscape”
Sean Nugent (Programme Director) and Kathryn Fleet (Learning Consultant)

Theatre 5, Wednesday 1st February, 13.15-13.45 

In today’s fast-moving and ever-changing business landscape, organisations are facing more challenges than ever before. None more so than the pharmaceutical and life sciences sector, where advances in biotechnology, the development of digital health systems and increasingly complex regulation all pose serious learning challenges. At LEO, we combine 30+ years of experience with creative and expert thinking to craft world-class solutions which improve individual and organisational performance for real business impact.

In this session, we’ll share our latest thinking from a range of sectors, and share insights gained from our recent work in the pharmaceutical and life sciences sector on:

  • Using scenario based learning to develop patient-focused behaviour
  • Making compliance training measurable and meaningful
  • Developing a learning culture across the extended enterprise
  • Using advanced technologies such as AR and VR to understand complex products
  • Using business simulations to develop commercial skills

“The impact of moving to blended learning”
Imogen Casebourne (Director of Learning) and Ella Richardson (Learning Consultant)

Theatre 5, Thursday 2nd February, 13.15-13.45 

Blended learning as a concept has been with us for a while, but the latest Towards Maturity research suggests that something is still holding many people back. Yet there is increasing evidence that blends can be extremely powerful learning experiences. In this seminar, LEO’s Director of Learning Imogen Casebourne and LEO’s Learning Consultant Ella Richardson will take you through some example blends and discuss the impact that blended learning can have for audiences as diverse as unqualified carers and aspiring senior leaders.

Are you wondering what all the fuss is about? Are you contemplating a move to blended learning but aren’t sure how to get started? Are you looking to create a business case? This seminar is for you.
