Keynote Speaker Nigel Paine


Why learning then won’t be like learning now: welcome to the BIG DISRUPTION

We will look back on our so-called learning age with astonishment and amazement! How could most people put up with so little for so long? Imprecise, content focussed and tedious learning, forced into formal programmes, that are never repeated, with no measure of impact apart from ‘did you enjoy this?’ nonsense.

The big disruption will be around personalised learning, personalised for every single person but visible to the company as a dashboard that will reveal the pain points and progress across the organisation as a whole. So targeted, just enough and just when needed. This will be a complete transformation. And I will explain much, much more in the session.

Nigel headed up the BBC's training and development operation, where he built one of the most successful learning and development operations in the UK. This included an award-winning leadership programme, state-of-the-art informal learning, e-learning and knowledge sharingm and one of the most outstanding and well-used intranets in the corporate sector. Nigel left the BBC in 2006 to start his own company, which focuses on leadership, creativity, innovation and e-learning. He works with companies in Europe, Brazil, Australia and the US.

Nigel is a Masie Learning Fellow and has written articles and whitepapers on subjects as diverse as 'creativity in the workplaxce', 'building corporate heroes' and 'the future of e-learning' as well as published several books.

Keynote Speaker Donald H Taylor, Chairman, The Learning and Performance Institute UK


2018 learning results and trends (2018 L&D Global Sentiment Survey)

Donald H Taylor is a recognised commentator and organiser in the fields of workplace learning and learning technologies.

Donald will be sharing the survey results from his annual L&D Global Sentiment Survey on what L&D professionals think will be hot in 2018, with results both globally and from the New Zealand sector. Attendees will receive a copy of the global report.

There are some interesting differences in NZ in trends compared to the rest of the world. Last year personalisation and adapative delivery topped the table, pushing collaborative and social learning into second place. Personalisation is hotter than ever thanks to the possibilities offered by algorithms and artificial intelligence. Microlearning was a hot topic for NZ but that does not mean it is well defined, understood or implemented. VR, AR and AI all featured highly. Are they mature enough to impact mainstream enterprise L&D in 2018?

Keynote Speaker Robin Petterd, Director, Sprout Labs


Artificial intelligence - Changing the way L&D works

Artificial Intelligence is transforming our workplaces. Robotics, big data, and machine learning are starting to have a profound effect on how we work. There are predictions that 30% to 40% of all current jobs are going be automated in the future. In this session, we’ll explore what the impact of these technologies means for the skills L&D needs to be focusing on now and into the future and how AI can be used in L&D to transform the way we work. The session will include an overview of some of the current L&D tools and platforms that are using AI approaches.

Robin Petterd has a PhD in interactive creative media. He is the founder of Sprout Labs where he helps work organisations to transform how they learn. At the moment, Sprout Labs is working on a new AI based learning analytics platform. He is the host of the Learning While Working podcast and virtual conference and regularly runs webinars and other events.

Keynote Speaker Eyal Ronen, Chief Learning Evangelist, GamEffective


Gamified personalised micro learning based on learner KPIs - case study, Supercharge eLearning with Gamification and real-time feedback

Using gamification to drive microlearning engagement sounds like a good idea, but companies struggle to figure out where it fits in, asking, "What is gamified microlearning or microlearning engagement anyway?" In this session, we'll describe the different use cases, explore why push microlearning is interesting, share tips and tricks, show what it looks like, and, most importantly, explain how microlearning can be adapted in real-time based on performance and knowledge.

Eyal Ronen, a Ph.D. in Organizational Psychology, has been focusing on the world of employee growth for more than two decades. In recent years he has taken a path that investigates and reinforces the human-machine interface to ensure superior e-learning efficacy.

An award-winning professor, an international speaker, and a true Learning Evangelist, Eyal brings a practical approach even to the most academic topics.
