Marks & Spencer Joins Kineo and City & Guilds Panel Discussion at HRD 2013

City & Guilds Group, which now includes elearning leaders Kineo, will be joined by learning professionals from leading organisations including Marks & Spencer at the CIPD’s annual HRD conference on 24 and 25 April 2013. The Group is hosting a seminar and panel discussion at the event to explore the ‘10 Learning Technology Trends That Deliver Strategic Benefits to Leading Organisations.

Following in-depth research into workplace learning conducted by Kineo at the end of 2012, 10 key trends were identified that are delivering real benefits to organisations today. The session will share these and other valuable insights from leading companies including Tesco, Civil Service Learning, Lloyds Banking Group, Bupa and Vodafone. Amongst the panellists will be Jane Daly, Head of the Head Office of Learning and Development at Marks & Spencer, who will share her insights on what HR leadership can do to maximise the results of their learning strategies, and the M&S experience.

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.

Kineo Director Stephen Walsh comments, "Our research is based on qualitative analysis of how technology-led learning and development leads deliver strategic benefits within organisations. Real-world experts like Jane Daly are on the front line of delivering strategic benefits and as a result, we’ll be revealing very practical advice that can be applied to help HRD attendees – and those not attending via the social media coverage – start to deliver these benefits right now."

At HRD 2013, Kineo and City & Guilds will showcase their solutions as part of the expanding City & Guilds Group. The combined experience and portfolios promises an exciting new approach to workplace learning and development.

The seminar and panel discussion is on day 2 of the event and the new look City & Guilds Group will be on Stand 283 for the duration of the show. More information on the Group's HRD attendance can be found here.
