Managers are crucial to learning in organisations. They decide who has time to learn and when, and their attitude towards the L&D department can determine how entire departments approach it. But how do managers themselves learn and how can L&D influence them? Recently GoodPractice engaged with ComRes to ask 500 UK managers what they get up to behind their L&D department’s back. In this webinar the results – published at the end of November – are aired online for the first time. Be warned, though: you won’t like everything they say.

I really liked this honest and insightful webinar.
In an industry were everyone is busy showing off the wonder of new technology, or the latest trends in online learning, it's refreshing to hear from a practitioner who looks at the needs of the target audience, and underline diversity of learning approaches. I liked the fact that Owen is willing to speak openly about the fact that online learning and technology is not "the solution" to magically change people's attitude towards learning.
And what I liked even more, is the absence of "buzz" words, which in my opinion always reflect competence and a genuine intention to get people to understand the message, rather than merely impress them.
