TJ Conference


The world of learning and development, like everything else, is changing very fast and many of us struggle to keep up. We all find ourselves dealing with issues unheard of by previous generations: What’s the best technolgy available to help me in my present role? How do I manage the volume of data and information dropping into my inbox everyday? Should I use social media and if so how? Where’s the proof that neuroscience can change the way I support people in their learning?

The questions are endless and changing all the time. Keeping abreast of what’s happening at the cutting edge of learning practice and learning from your peers has never been more important. That’s why attendance at the TJ 50th Anniversary Conference has never been more important – for with these challenges come the opportunities for L&D practitioners to change the way organisations and their people function.

“Anyone who thinks that learning will lumber on as it always has or that all the technology they need is in their LMS are frankly, naive.” As the opening keynote speaker Nigel Paine urges so emphatically: “A much bigger role awaits because that revolution needs our help to get started in many companies. We could be the ignition switch in the transformation of work. Perhaps we are the ones, to not just change learning, but change organisations and the mind-sets that define them.”
