Next-generation learning expert Brightwave has announced its position as Research Partner for the Learning at Work Summit, forming part of Bett 2014.

Brightwave has confirmed its support of the Bett Learning at Work Summit, having been selected as the research partner for the growing event. Now in its second year, The Workplace Learning Summit is designed to give learning and development and training professionals a space to discuss the issues facing them in their roles, explore case-studies and hear about successful learning programmes from a number of FTSE 100 organisations.

As the research partner for the event, Brightwave has been working closely with the conference organisers to ensure that the programme is aligned to the challenges and opportunities facing the L&D profession today.

Shaping the agenda

Earlier in the year, Brightwave welcomed a group of senior learning professionals to an exclusive roundtable event in London where a range of topics, from culture and change through to leadership, motivating learners and measuring success, were discussed. Facilitated by Brightwave, a key objective for the session was to explore a number of 'hot topics' that are shaping the learning landscape, including Big Data, informal learning and the rise of MOOCs in the workplace. The outcomes of the discussion and views of the attendees have been distilled into a number of key themes that will inform the content for the show.

This degree of collaboration, together with the opportunity to bring its expertise in developing innovative solutions for today's learning culture, has been central to Brightwave's Research Partner role. At the event (22nd - 23rd January 2014) Brightwave will facilitate and guide discussions between delegates, ensuring that attendees maximise the opportunity to explore the content with colleagues and peers.

Charles Gould, MD at Brightwave, said: "Workplace learning is changing. At Brightwave we continue to lead the way in how organisations can use technology to help their people learn and perform, more effectively. As the research partner for the Workplace Learning event, we are excited to be helping shape the agenda, ensuring that delegates are inspired by the latest innovations and thinking about how people learn at work."

Debbie French, Portfolio Director, i2i Events Group said:

"As supporters of the Learning at Work Summit in its first year, we are delighted to be working with Brightwave again for the 2014 event. Brightwave's reputation for having its finger firmly on-the-pulse, make them a great partner for us. Their role as Research Partner is a vital one, ensuring that the event represents the latest thinking and innovations in workplace learning. Brightwave's involvement with the programme, as well as their role at the event, will help deliver a fantastic environment for delegates to share and explore key issues and be inspired to  overcome common challenges".

A conference agenda 'curated' by the industry

To ensure the best speakers and the latest in workplace learning excellence, the agenda and programme continues to be researched.

Brightwave and the Workplace Learning Summit team are keen to hear from individual teams or organisations that have seen success from a new initiative or have a suggestion regarding a conference subject.
