We’re hosting our first UK event in Leeds city centre, with the aim of networking with local businesses and providing a space for them to share and learn how to overcome their industry challenges with the help of Learning and Development.
Having acquired Virtual College at the start of 2022, we’ve been working hard to develop the Netex brand within the UK. We started the year exhibiting our suite of products at well-known L&D exhibitions in the UK, such as World of Learning and Learning Technologies, and now feel it’s the right time to host an event of our own.
Our event “Network and Learn” brings together L&D professionals and HR practitioners providing an opportunity to address shared business challenges and their solutions. Hosted at The Terrace, Wellington Place on Wednesday 12th July between 3-6pm, attendees will also have the opportunity to listen to industry experts, Jez Anderson and Donald H Taylor.
Donald H Taylor, Lead Researcher for the L&D Global Sentiment Survey, will be exploring the challenges and opportunities for L&D in the 21st Century. Drawing on case studies and research, he will examine why things seem to be changing so fast and explore the opportunities as well as examine the risks. The key takeaway: as always, it’s not just about new technologies, but also about new ways of working – both with the business and inside the L&D department itself.
Jez Anderson, Digital Learning Consultant will be discussing a client case study, revealing how to shift from content-led to experience-led learning through the effective use of an LMS. Having worked in the learning and development sector for over 30 years, he has a particular interest and passion for informal learning and developing learning cultures that nurture and support individual resourcefulness and enquiry.
If networking and learning wasn’t enough, there will be Yorkshire tapas on offer alongside Spanish beer and wine, as a nod to our Spanish head office.
