The next  blog post in the series of  the Future of Learning 2015 Conference of The Institute of Learning Professionals. Below the key takeaways and tips about what it means to be in the 'Learning flow':


“It is not about the quantum of change, it is about the velocity.”

- Mark Vollmer


  • As of 2014, 80% of the current company valuations relate directly to talent
  • Key phrases: Customised Learning and Retain Talent/Experience
  • We are moving from 'Teaching Teachers’ to ‘Coaching Teachers’
  • Future students are more demanding but will also bring more input to the table
  • Trainers should ask: “What do you want to get out of this training?”
  • The workplace has changed and will continue to change: Companies need to Wake Up!
  • Statistics: 2hrs of employee productivity is lost a day due to the Digital Skills Gap


That statistic on the Digital Skills gap is shocking, two hours a day is easily 96hrs of loss of employee productivity! By comparing costs, you are better off spending a few hours/days on up skilling instead of not having your employee be productive due to not having the adequate knowledge.

Additionally we signed up for Coaching app Archiiva: http://www.achiiva.com/ It is fairly new as it is still in Beta version. This app allows coaches and trainers to connect with their clients - wherever they are.




As we come up with more and more brilliant ideas in the technology worlds, we now need to build the bridge between this innovative world and the business world. So many things would make business so much easier - do you know what tech-savvy opportunities you are missing? As the saying states:

"You don't know what you don't know."



Feel free to leave a comment below or contact us for a chat about incorporating more tech-savvy solutions or assisting you with up skilling. We have great partners in the IT-industry and are more than happy to connect you as well as having amazing coaches and trainers in our team.
