Does Digital Really Hold the Key to Future Training Needs?

Adam Beard, Managing Director, Download Learning Ltd.

My early career took me from the marketing department of an Aluminium Company to the Advertising Department of Barclays Bank.

I then spent the next 20 years in some of the country’s leading marketing services agencies working internationally with global brands such as Guiness, The FT, Seagram and Toyota, which is where I built a reputation as an innovator with a series of industry ‘firsts’.

From there I moved into growth and innovation consultancy.

So how did I find myself managing what I consider to be one of the most innovative and leading-edge companies in the training sector?

The desire of my business partner and myself to apply our innovation skills to our own ideas combined with a series of fortunate meetings and conversations; a serendipitous series of events.

We now find ourselves pioneering neuroscience-based learning both in the UK and globally.

From new product launches to neuroscience; a somewhat eclectic career path!

Does Digital Really Hold the Key to Future Training Needs?

Technology is changing at an exponential rate and with it the need to provide training to allow for the adoption of that technology. There is a need to train more people, quicker and more effectively and all this against ever increasing budgetary pressures. Does digital hold the key to this increasing training demand or does the solution lie elsewhere?

Advancements in the understanding of neuroscience and physiology are enabling break throughs in learning that could be transformative, enabling a paradigm shift in the effectiveness and efficiency of learning techniques. 

This presentation explores those techniques, the science behind them and how they can be applied within the learning blend and in conjunction with ongoing digital learning innovations.
