It’s the CIPD annual conference in Manchester next Tuesday and Wednesday. As usual there is lots of great content to get stuck into.
Four out of five of the conference streams are concerned with L&D. I think that's significant. They are:
- Organisation Effectiveness and Change
- Performance and Talent Management
- Science of Human Behaviour
- Future of Work and Business Insights
Keynote Margaret Heffernan promises to be very interesting. To give you a flavour of her thinking, it is worth checking out her TED Talks. Here’s one on getting the best work out of employees.
The exhibition is full of free learning too, including DPG’s session on Removing the distance from distance learning which is on day one at 10am in the HR Trends and Essentials Zone. If you are not in the conference, you can catch Margaret Heffernan at 11.30am in the same zone.
And if you can't make it, follow the event on Twitter at: #cipdACE16
If you are going, what will you be aiming to get out of the conference?
