News and diary date: Next generation learning from Brightwave at Learning Technologies 2013

UKLearning NewsBrightwave Group

Brightwave announce seminar and lunch programme at Learning Technologies 2013 on how we can use technology to better integrate learning and work.

Venue: Olympia 2 Conference Centre, London  
Dates: Tuesday 29th & Wednesday 30th January 2013

Across a programme of lunches and seminars Brightwave experts will demonstrate how learning today can be more dynamic, relevant and personal to meet the changing needs of organisations and their learners.

Towards Maturity Benchmark 2012 study shows a significant gap between the importance organisations place on integrating learning and work (93%) and what’s actually being achieved (23%). Increasingly, we all need to be able to organise our learning to meet specific business objectives and performance targets. How can we help reality meet our expectations?

Spaces for the lunches are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment. The seminars are free to attend and don’t require advanced booking - just turn up for the start of the session.
