Leading e-learning supplier Learning Pool has announced that Denise Hudson-Lawson, Head of Online Services for Parliamentary ICT, and Steve Wheeler, Associate Professor of Learning Technologies at Plymouth University, will headline the agenda at each of the three Learning Pool Live events in October.


Now in their fifth year, the Learning Pool Live events bring inspiration, practical advice and a lot of fun in equal measure. Learning Pool will be going on tour throughout the UK and providing an opportunity for delegates to take away tried and tested e-learning strategies.

With 'Develop the Possibilities' as the theme, the events will take place in Sheffield (9 October), Cardiff (16 October) and London (23 October), and expect to attract hundreds of learning and development professionals from across the UK public and private sectors.

Originally trained as a psychologist, Steve Wheeler has spent his entire career working in media, technology and learning. He is a renowned speaker in his field and has presented training sessions and workshops for various local and national government authorities and professional development organisations.

Steve will explore ‘Learning Futures: How new and emerging technologies will impact learning and development’.

Denise Hudson-Lawson is Head of Online Services for Parliamentary ICT and has recently moved from being Head of ICT Training. She is responsible for Service Delivery for over 7,000 customers for a number of areas including training, support and product delivery.

Denise came to the Houses of Parliament from the private sector where she has considerable experience in managing and delivering IT services and training.  As well as working in IT, she is also a coach and mentor and helps individuals both inside Parliament and outside reach their goals.

Passionate about advocating online training, Denise will cover “Getting Out of the Classroom” in her keynote.

Delegates can save 50% on their Learning Pool Live ticket if they book before 31st May 2013.
