L&D Matters is written to help L&D professionals and trainers become even more effective. It discusses all things L&D related, with a particular emphasis on practical advice for those new to L&D or who wish to develop their practice further. It is written by Rachel Burnham.
Rachel Burnham writes: I was fortunate enough to participate in the CIPD NAP
conference over the past weekend, 9-10th June 2017, in York.This conference is organised annually by a
team of volunteers from the northern branches of the CIPD and is one of the
friendliest HR conferences around.
The theme this year
was ‘Enhancing the Employee Experience’ and a wide range of topics were
explored under this heading from Emotion at work, through diversity &
inclusion, to Personal Learning Networks and Apprenticeships.
The highlight for me
was the keynote given by Peter Cheese, CIPD’s CEO, who spoke passionately about
the contribution of HR to organisations and society, in the context of the new
Professional Standards that CIPD is currently in the process of developing.I have heard Peter Cheese speak on many
occasions, but I have never heard him speak so powerfully and movingly.It made me proud to work in HR.
Here are my
Sketchnotes from this event, including Peter Cheese’s session.
Burnham L & D Consultancy helps L&D professionals update
and refresh their skills. I am particularly interested in blended
learning, the use of digital skills for learning, evaluation and anything that
improves the impact of learning on performance.
