Facilitator Marion Littin

As an experienced primary school teacher, Marion has developed engaging, relevant, and purpose-built learning experiences for children in response to their identified learning needs in order to meet the requirements of the New Zealand Curriculum.

These are also the skills required to design high quality, effective learning for adults. Accurate assessment of a learner’s strengths and needs drives quality learning design. It may be formative – to establish the learner’s needs, or summative – to determine competency. She has designed assessments, and used norm-referenced industry tools. With any type of assessment, prompt and relevant feedback to the learner enables them to build competency.

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

9.00am-10.00am

2019 learning results and trends (2019 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 2019, with results both globally and from the Australasian 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 2019?


Keynote Speaker Amy Brann, Synaptic Potential

10.30am-11.30am

Boosting Performances with Change ReadinessNQ – the Human Tech side of digital transformation

• Understanding how the science of ChangeReadinessNQ works

• Applying the framework to assess your individual and organisational ChangeReadinessNQ

• Developing strategies for your employees to achieve great performance

ChangeReadinessNQ: Strengthening your organisation’s /employees ability to manage change and cultivate opportunity.

What is ChangeReadinessNQ? No organisation is immune to change. The way your organization prepares for and reacts to sudden shocks or long-term changing trends has a huge impact on its success. Technology is not pushing pause anytime soon.

ChangeReadinessNQ is the capacity of your organisation – and in particular the employees working within your organisation – to intelligently anticipate, prepare for, manage and respond to change, proactively cultivating the resulting opportunities and mitigating potential negative impacts.

By identifying and assessing potential capability gaps in your employee’s ChangeReadinessNQ across its core pillars, you will be able to make informed decisions that will strengthen the change readiness of your organisation.

Amy will cover:

  • Why is ChangeReadinessNQ important?
  • What are the Core Pillars of ChangeReadinessNQ? (the Framework)
  • What drivers optimize ChangeReadinessNQ?

“I love making organisations better through game changing neuroscientific insights. I do this as an author, consultant, workshop creator and speaker all over the world”

Amy Brann blends her academic knowledge of how the brain works with her experience of leaders’ challenges to share uniquely insightful ways forward.

Amy consults, delivers workshops, keynotes and runs culture change programmes globally to companies such as Accenture, EY, and Warner Bros. Her organisation partnered with Bangor University’s Behaviour Change Centre to enable participation in researching and developing the cutting edge insights that are solidly underpinned by science. These sort of credible approaches mean organisations trust her to partner with them to get results.

She is the author of ‘Make Your Brain Work’, ‘Neuroscience for Coaches’ and ‘Engaged: The neuroscience behind creating productive people in successful organisations’.

Based in Warwick in the UK, she is frequently described as an inspiring and engaging speaker who shares bite sized actionable takeaways.


Keynote Speaker Gary Cookson, EPIC

11.45am-12.45pm

Successful Digital Transformation

What makes digital transformation succeed or fail? As 53% of business leaders feel their business faces digital disruption over the next 2 years, why do less than half of these have a formal digital transformation strategy in place?

Transformation, digital or not, creates anxiety and fear amongst employees – so getting it right is key to employee engagement as well as business productivity. If we are to make it work, we need to understand not just the technological side of change but the cultural side too.

In this session, Gary Cookson will explore how businesses can get digital transformation right, and explain 9 key tips that you can use to get your organisation ready.

Gary Cookson’s organisation, EPIC, helps people and places to Evolve, Perform, Improve and Compete.

Gary Cookson is a CIPD Chartered Fellow, Fellow of the Learning and Performance Institute, qualified coach and member of the Association for Coaching, Personal Trainer accredited by the REP, teacher, qualified workplace mediator, qualified H&S professional and a distance learning tutor.

Charles Jennings and Sydney Savion – AirNZ Breakfast – Building a Culture of Learning
May 29 @ 7:30 am – 9:00 am

“Building a Culture of Learning”

Is 70:20:10 going to evolve into a culture of learning and what does such a thing look like in an organization like WD 40 Company?

In today’s rapidly changing world successful organisations are those that continually adapt and re-invent their business models to take advantage of new opportunities. To do this, they need their people to be equally adaptable and agile. To do this, they need to create a culture of learning.

A true ‘learning culture’ is one where people learn not only formally through courses and programmes, but primarily from their daily work and from their colleagues. Learning becomes part of the daily workflow, and the workforce exploits every opportunity to learn from working as well as learning to work.
