Here at @LearnTechUK about to discover how L&D can actively contribute to #sustainability and the green agenda. I know nothing about it - so I can’t wait for speakers Brittany Sage Brown @Brittany_Sage_B & Tess Robinson @tessrobinsonLAS to blow my mind. Bring it! #LT23UK #T5S1
Did you know that Louisiana in the US is the first place in the world to have climate refugees due to flooding. They may be the first but @tessrobinsonLAS tells us they won’t be the last. #LT23UK #T5S1 Image
We just got asked how people in the room feel about #climatechange. Here are some of the answers from Menti. #LT23UK #T5S1 Image
63% of the public think businesses need to to act IMMEDIATELY on #climatechange #LT23UK #T5S1 Image
But even so … most organisations are not doing enough or aren’t communicating what they’re doing - so people are unsure. #LT23UK #T5S1 Image
We just got asked a BIG question from @tessrobinsonLAS - Why don’t people talk more about climate change? Really interesting answers - it can be polarising and divisive, it’s uncomfortable, it can be complex and we don’t feel expert, it can appear critical of others #LT23UK #T5S1 Image
We need to break #climatesilence by listening, asking for people’s thoughts and being willing to have open and small conversations about it. Create space for agency and trust and make people feel psychologically safe #climatechange
#LT23UK #T5S1
#Storytelling is an important part of the #climatechange discussion. “A story does what facts and statistics never can: it inspires and motivates. the audience tuned in because they see themselves woven into the story” : Daniel Taylor - The power of stories #LT23UK #T5S1 Image
And here @LearnTechUK we’re now putting our #storytelling skills into action. @tessrobinsonLAS has invited the room to form small groups & everyone is talking animatedly and sharing stories about how they are addressing #climatechange in their own organisations #LT23UK #T5S1 Image
A mic drop to end from @tessrobinsonLAS. She shared a video from Wangari Maathai. Short & impactful showing a hummingbird putting out a fire 1 drop of water at a time. Gave me goosebumps. Key msg: we should all be doing what we can. Watch at #LT23UK #T5S1 Image
Now @Brittany_Sage_B starts telling us HOW - how can we be better what are concrete things we do to bring about #sustainability. She’s telling us how her team does it. Insider insight! Image
Did you know that in many cases it’s #procurement experts leading the charge for #climatechange. Not experts - people just like you and me. Mindblown 🤯. #LT23UK #T5S1 Image
And did you know that @KraftHeinzCo are here at @LearnTechUK in the #exhibition you can right down and ask them about how they embed sustainability into their procurement processes. @Brittany_Sage_B assures us they are happy to help and share their knowledge #LT23UK #T5S1
And @KraftHeinzCo even have a Masters programme doing a blended learning approach that includes storytelling, experience sharing and the use of technology. It’s hybrid - virtual and in person. And they’re doing it for their first cohort of 15 starting very soon. #LT23UK #T5S1

The next session I’m covering @LearnTechUK was made for me. Not only is it about #learning but it’s about #Agile as well. Whoop whoop! We’ve got Jodie Pritchard from @CitizensAdvice and Richard Kerridge from @HPE. I can’t wait!!!! #LT23UK #T3S5
Jodie’s up first and she starts with a reminder of what the #AgileValues & #AgilePrinciples are (pictured) with a reminder that we can replace “software” with whatever we’re making, that simplicity is a focus on what people want and co-location with working closely #LT23UK #T3S5 ImageImage
By the way, in case you were wondering, here’s what Jodie looks like up on screen and here’s how you can find her on LinkedIn where she’s more active:… #LT23UK #T3S5 ImageImage

It’s Day 2 of @LearnTechUK & my first session is about Learning Personalisation. Personalising #learning can improve retention & performance. But how do we get there? Nicola McNeillie from @AstraZeneca & David Kelly @LnDDave from @LearningGuild will tell us. #LT23UK #T4S4
Both David and Nicola are more active on LinkedIn than Twitter so I’m going to share their details. David is at and Nicola is at…. I know, I know - I’m so helpful. #LT23UK #T4S4
David is up first! And he starts with a hilarious story. He spoke at @LearnTechUK yesterday on #EmergingTechnologies & when he was looking at his social media mentions yesterday he saw one that said “Personalised learning doesn’t exist” attributed to him. Whoops! #LT23UK #T4S4

In the final session I’m covering today at @LearnTechUK, Michael Edwards & Maya Harris from @McKinsey share their internal process to help informal #learning happen more often & more systematically. I look forward to telling you all their secrets in this thread #LT23UK #T2S3
Neither Michael nor Maya are active on Twitter (sad times) but if you wanted to know what they look like and what they do - here you go! At McKinsey Michael is Global Leader, Way We Work Director of People & Ops. Maya is a Senior Learning Manager. #LT23UK #T2S3 Introducing Michael and Maya
In this session we’ll be talking a lot about #apprenticeship but not in the the traditional sense. At @McKinsey they use the word “apprenticeship” to mean #OnTheJob #Learning on the job. This is really important for the context of the session (& this thread). #LT23UK #T2S3

Does the focus on building skills mean we might be missing a trick when it comes to improving wider org performance? No clue - but I bet Charles Jennings @charlesjennings has some insight & answers! I’ll listen in here at @LearnTechUK and keep you posted, shall I? #LT23UK #T3S2
Covering the session with me is the one and only Ben Waldman @LandD_Ben - so you KNOW I’m already having ALL THE FUN. Let the tweeting begin #LT23UK #T3S2 Image
And guess who the chair is?!?! It’s a friendly face. The one and only @ZahraCJ! Hey Zarah!!! 👋🏽👋🏽👋🏽 #LT23UK #T3S2 Image
