With over 30 years’ experience at the forefront of learning innovation, Perring has a unique view of L&D based on his time as practitioner and as an analyst. In his role as director of research, he independently explores the experiences of learning professionals and suppliers, to understand the realities of what’s really happening in organisations today, and what is helping them make a difference.
The appointment brings this depth of insight to the LPI’s mission to promote, empower and support best practice in workplace learning and its impact on organisational performance.
Perring explains, ‘Today we seem to be entering a genuine step change in our profession. As big as I have seen since I first became an LPI member 20 years ago. And with such seismic shifts coming in how we work, and learn I am really excited about working the Advisory Board to help shape the future. It’s an absolute privilege.’
CEO of the LPI, Edmund Monk comments, ‘We’re delighted to have David as part of our Advisory Board. His wealth of experience and enthusiasm for transforming learning will add great value to our members across the world. Plus, his analysis and insights from Fosway’s research add a new dimension to a profession that really needs the right data and informed decision making to move forward.’
Perring’s tenure on the Advisory Board kicked off at the Spring meeting of the LPI’s LEARNING LIVE Network in London where he led a lively discussion on ‘Digging into the realities of digital learning’.
