Together, the two companies showcase digital learning that’s as enjoyable for learners as it is measurable for L&D with training that’s inspiring and personalised to your requirements with two free-to-attend seminars and a demo at the event.
Here’s where you’ll find Sponge at the show.
Sponge stand: K50, Exhibition Hall
Visit stand K50 to experience Sponge’s latest and greatest client projects. The company will also be introducing Spark, the next gen learning platform powered by Bolt. Fully customisable and scalable, Spark translates detailed learner data into rich insights via a single cutting-edge platform.
Sponge joined forces with Bolt, following its acquisition by Aliter Capital in November 2019, to form a strategic part of a new learning group. Book a meeting with Sponge to talk about its content and vision – ambitious yet grounded in the art of the doable. Bolt will also be on hand to talk cutting-edge platforms.
For the first time, delegates will also be able to play Sponge’s full range of ‘Sorted’ learning games on interactive podiums. The company’s friendly team will be available to explain all the customisation options available, including branding elements and language translations.
If you’re excited by the potential of data in measuring impact, join Sponge’s Chief Innovation Officer, Kate Pasterfield in the seminar: ‘Six inspiring ways to enhance the learning experience using data’ in a practical talk inspired by real-world examples.
With 16 years’ digital learning experience, Kate is committed to driving innovation in the sector. And she’s passionate about enhancing creative learning experiences with advanced platforms and analytics. Her seminar explains how data can enable us to enhance the learning experience significantly. She explains the ways data has been used to:
- Help people build knowledge and develop mastery
- Motivate people to complete learning tasks
- Measure learning impact with impressive results for business

Cybersecurity remains a major threat to businesses, with the cost of some breaches running into the millions, and that’s before you consider reputational damage. The answer? Upskill your people so they can be your greatest asset in the fight against phishing, hackers and untrustworthy content.

Join this demo to:
- Play a ‘true’ learning game based on gamification theory
- Discover how familiar mechanics make the game easy and enjoyable to play
- Understand how the game embeds good decision-making around cybersecurity
- Challenge yourself to see how much you really know about cybersecurity
Sponge clients in the Conference Hall:
- Tetra Pak: 11.15–12.25, 13 February
Join Sally Atkinson, Director of Learning at Tetra Pak, in the ‘Onboarding’ session (Track 5 – Implementation) discussing how important it is to get employees off on the right foot from day one.
Sally explains how Tetra Pak worked with Sponge to harness the latest digital learning strategies to deliver a fully immersive global onboarding solution, which uses an interactive map and 360 video to virtually induct new employees wherever they are in the world.
- AstraZeneca: 15.50-17.00, 13 February
For the second year running, Louise Vamvoukaki, Director of Global Sustainability Education and Engagement at AstraZeneca, explains how the pharmaceutical company worked in partnership with Sponge to move mandatory compliance training from a ‘must do’ to a ‘want to do’ activity in the ‘Compliance’ session (Track 5 – Implementation).
Louise shares two recent examples of compliance training: ‘Speak Up’ and ‘Code of Ethics 2019’ which prove that compliance can and should be engaging and exciting for learners. Watch Louise’s conference preview here.
