New 'social learning leaders masterclass' intends to help L&D leaders guide their organisations towards a unified digital and social learning culture


The Learning and Performance Institute, global membership body and foremost provider of products and services to the workplace learning sector, has today announced an alliance with Sea Salt Learning to provide Heads of L&D with an exclusive masterclass on social learning.

The Social Learning Leaders Masterclass is designed specifically for Heads of L&D wishing to take charge of the self-directed learning revolution and lead their organisations towards a unified digital and social learning culture.

It is intended that masterclass participants will gain the knowledge and confidence to be able to:

  • Clarify to their executives the impact of the social age and the demands for change in organisational leadership and culture
  • Develop the fundamental capabilities that their organisation will need to become fit for the social age
  • Apply the most critical digital and learning strategies to their portfolio
  • Effectively communicate typical budget savings and investment using real world examples

Sea Salt Learning will deliver the masterclass, providing delegates with a team of social learning experts, virtual community spaces on popular social networks, supporting collateral, and access to real-world case studies and business information.

Heading up the delivery team will be Sea Salt Learning's founder, Julian Stodd, who regularly publishes books and articles on the strategy and implementation of learning, leadership and cultural change. 

“We are really looking forward to working with the LPI to develop professionals who challenge the status quo of learning delivery – using the opportunities of the Social Age." said Stodd.

"The Social Age is a time of constant change: the things that got us here will not complete the journey. As the ways we work, lead and learn evolve, we need to change what we do within our organisations to match this new reality. In this workshop, we will set the foundations for that change.” 

Edmund Monk, Managing Director, LPI, said: "This shows, once again, that the LPI is leading the way in addressing a critical challenge for learning leaders in 2015 – how to harness the social age to increase organisational performance. The Social Learning Leaders Masterclass represents the first in a series of fantastic workshops which the LPI will be hosting over the coming months to ensure learning professionals are fully equipped, and prepared to bring true efficacy to the companies they represent. I am delighted to be collaborating with Julian and the Sea Salt Learning team on this programme and am looking forward to what will be a hugely informative day."

The Social Learning Leaders Masterclass takes place on the 9th December 2015 at the SAS Building in London's Bishopsgate area. Tickets are priced at £495 + VAT. More information about the Social Learning Leaders Masterclass is available via the LPI along with the Social Learning Leaders Masterclass brochure.
