Fresh insights on workplace learning from Kineo and City & Guilds at HRD 2013 this week

Kineo, the leaders in learning technology, will share practical insights on how leverage learning technologies in the workplace at the CIPD’s annual HRD conference this week.

Now part of the City & Guilds Group, Kineo will host a free seminar that shares the ‘10 Learning Technology Trends That Deliver Strategic Benefits to Leading Organisations’.

Visitors to Stand 283 will also be able to collect a free copy of Kineo’s recent Learning Insights Report. Based on in-depth research with over 30 leading organisations, the report highlights key experiences from leading businesses into how they are successfully delivering results using technology enabled learning solutions.

The seminar session at 230 on Thursday in the Technology for Learning Arena will build on the initial findings of the report and will feature 10 key insights gathered from interviews with L&D leaders in organisations including Tesco, Civil Service Learning, Lloyds Banking Group, Bupa and Vodafone.

Joining Kineo at the seminar will be Jane Daly, Head of Head Office Learning and Development at Marks and Spencer. Jane will be sharing her insights on what HR leadership can do to maximise the results of their learning strategies. She will also discuss a recent case study of how her innovative use of technology helped revolutionise the training involved in providing the M&S experience.

Stephen Walsh, Kineo Director said: “The learning space is changing, and our clients tell us there’s greater potential than ever to make an impact with learning technology. We were keen to capture the trends that are making the biggest difference in the world’s leading organisations, and we’re looking forward to sharing these at HRD 2013. We’re delighted that Marks & Spencer will join us at the seminar to share their experiences in driving performance through learning technology. Now as part of City & Guilds, there’s even more that workplace learning can become – join us at stand 283 to find out more. ”

Those not attending the HRD event can still take part by contributing their thoughts and questions to the Twitter hashtag #HRDLTinsights. There will be a written report of the debate’s main points and findings available after the event.

HRD 2013 marks the first time that Kineo and City & Guilds will showcase their solutions as part of the expanding City & Guilds Group, which can be found on Stand 283.

The seminar is on day two of the event and more information can be found here:
