Swan, Shakespeare's Globe, London - Thursday 27th February (08.00 - 10.45)

Most organisations are investing in their people - training, upskilling and developing the workforce in response to endlessly changing needs and technology. But how many get the results they want?

We are often so busy trying to deliver development initiatives, the critical requirement of how to achieve sustainable behaviour change is forgotten.

With the help of scientific research and robust tools, we know how to design, deliver and measure development programmes that embed behaviour change more effectively than we did 50 years ago, 10 years ago, two years ago, and even last month.

The Breakfast Briefing

This interactive workshop will explore the latest thinking and brain science around learning design and delivery. It will equip you with practical tips and strategies to maximise sustainable behaviour change and discuss the steps needed to measure success.

It will give you an opportunity to:

* Get up to date with the latest thinking and contemporary science around people development
* Evaluate what you are currently doing in your organisation and refocus on the results of your programmes
* Connect with like-minded leaders to discuss and share experiences, challenges and best practice
* Hear specific examples about organisations who have achieved significant behaviour change from their people development initiatives

This free-to-attend breakfast briefing has been designed to be valuable, informative and enjoyable. We do hope that you can join us.
