A redesign of Training Journal marks our new approach to connecting with the L&D community
The June issue of TJ has a new, fresher look that aims to be brighter and more accessible for its readers. The redesign sees the return of regular columnists: L&D pundit Donald H Taylor features on the cover and will be writing broadly around the issues facing the L&D profession today.
Jo Cook, TJ’s deputy editor will be reviewing some of the best bits from social media each month too.
Two other opinion pages are part of the revamped editorial: ‘Practitioner’s viewpoint’ will feature a perspective from an L&D professional working at the sharp end of the business. The first one comes from Rob Jones from Crossrail who gives his own unique take on change.
The final page ‘Last stand’ is described as ‘A view of the world with a witty quip or two!’ this first contribution comes from stand-up comedy trainer Logan Murray who encourages readers to ‘be prepared to play’!
The launch of the new look magazine follows the success TJ’s Week of Webinars (#TJWOW) last month when Jo Cook, TJ’s deputy editor hosted a full week of webinars to kick start our regular monthly webinar which starts on Tuesday 21st June and is focused on change.
Commenting on the changes TJ’s Editor Debbie Carter said: “The redesign of the magazine is part of our commitment to supporting our community with their development. We wanted the magazine to lose some of its formality and be a fun read as well as informative and practical.
“Connecting with our community is now our main aim and that connection needs to be more conversational and our webinars are one way of doing that – giving our audiences the chance to give their perspectives along with those of the experts.
“While our awards give us the opportunity to connect again with our community and give them the opportunity to get external recognition for their best work. I can only see this dialogue growing as social media makes it easier for us to have those conversations with L&D people.”
