Managing conflict within teams

Conflict often arises within teams because individual team members have different ways of working and different expectations of each other.

Jo Keeler, Business Director, Belbin

12:30 – 13:00

Using partnering to build a change management community

Following legislation and the need to maximise the value to its members, The Law Society faced major change to transform itself into a commercial organisation. Without effective leadership at all levels, change would not be delivered in a culture that was typified by silos, lack of trust and ineffective performance management. 
This session explores how success was achieved by true partnering with the Board and managers at all levels, where Learning and Development and Berkshire Consultancy developed an empowered management community that seized opportunities and accelerated the pace of change. 

Sarah Hunter, Account Director, Berkshire Consultancy 

13:15 – 13:45

Learn how to make sense of beautifully complex and changing businesses in three practical steps: Go Engage – Grasp – Collaborate.

Martin Johnson, Director, Big Picture

13:45 – 14:15

How learning response systems can significantly improve learning and development

Each employee works at different levels and paces. This seminar will demonstrate how trainers can adapt their teaching style with powerful effect by improving the delivery of training content, and how this can be achieved.

Ranjit Singh, CEO, Interactive Education

14:00 – 14:30

Compliance e-learning – who says it has to be boring?

The words ‘compliance’ and ‘training’ together rarely elicit enthusiasm. But this presentation will reveal how to draw on the power of storytelling to not only make compliance e-learning more engaging, but more memorable too. 
Dr Naomi Norman, Director of Learning
Imogen Casebourne, Head of Learning, Epic


14:45 – 15:15

Can line managers become talent managers?

This interactive session demonstrates tools developed with Nationwide that allow line managers to identify different kinds of potential, put together a succession plan, develop strengths, and get team members to own and drive development.  Managers’ self ratings after three months show a 57% increase in understanding the potential in their team; a 50% increase in understanding the talent in their team; a 41% increase in responsibility taken by the team for their own development; and a 47% increase in clarity about their succession plan.

Scott Hobbs and Anne Hamill, Directors, Talent & Potential
Martin Hills, Leadership & Professional Development Manager, Nationwide

Seven trends of mobile learning

With such a wide range of options for delivering learning already available, do we really need another?

Martin Addison, Managing Director, Video Arts

15:30 – 16:00

The role of learning and development in supporting public sector change

The current budget cuts in local authorities are having a major impact on the services they provide and the people that work for them. Many local authorities are undertaking reviews of their back-office services in an effort to improve efficiency and reduce costs. However, organisational reviews and restructures can leave individuals feeling that the outcome is nothing more than a greater workload and a new desk.  

Susanne Evans, Managing Director, Feldspar Consulting
Helen Ashton, Partner and Head of Learning and Development, First Class learning and development
Jennifer Penfold, Corporate Learning and Development Manager, Leicestershire County Council

16:15 - 16:45
