The World of Learning event is an absolutely must attend event for L&D and HR professionals. This event showcases and provides information on eLearning, mobile learning and classroom learning.

The 2014 event consisted of plenty of free seminars and some notable seminars I attended where as follows:

This seminar was presented by bestselling author and international consultant specialising in behaviour skills.  This seminar focused a lot on change and dealing with change in an organisation and this is a key aspect of Liggy’s expertise as she is a specialist in many areas, which also includes expert knowledge in helping individuals and organisations effectively with the challenges that exist in the modern world of work, where constant change is part and parcel of every working day.

Liggy’s seminar included information on the following:

Make an Impact!

An exciting and enthusiastic seminar was delivered by Graham Director of Blue Beetle Training

Graham managed to easily get the audience involved in the seminar by getting each member of the audience to take photos of themselves using their mobile phones (depicting themselves as either happy or sad) which they then could use to send at the end of the seminar as a simple way of providing feedback on their view of the seminar.

Graham provided information on the following in his engaging seminar:

  • Practical tips on how to enthuse and inspire when public speaking
  • What makes an interesting speaker
  • Common mistakes to avoid
  • Tricks of the trade
