We are at a stage where innovative thinking isn't just about being fashionably ahead of the curve, it is becoming a necessity for survival.
Our existing ideas need to be challenged and we need to be open to new approaches and that is one of the reasons I am so pleased to be involved in the steering board of Online Educa Berlin which is now in it's sixteenth year!
OEB is unique in its focus on bringing individuals together from the corporate, pubic and education sectors to Every year over 2000 participants from more than 90 countries world-wide come together, making it the most comprehensive annual meeting place for technology-supported learning and training professionals in Europe.
It has always provided rich networking opportunities but in 2010, it is creating a really special networking and learning opportunity for those who are working in business:
New for 2010 - Business educa
Senior business managers don’t want learning, they want results. Business EDUCA focuses on achieving organisational results through collaborative intelligence and learning. OEB designed Business EDUCA for organisations large and small, non-profit and bottom-line driven. Network with peers, and solve problems cooperatively. Business EDUCA is about getting things done in organisations. It’s not academic. It draws from practice, innovation and research and focuses on outputs rather than inputs.
Business EDUCA provides the opportunity to explore, discuss, debate the latest issues facing organisations today. The sessions allocate time to collaborate with colleagues both on line and in person to create a programme unique tailored for each participant.
Subjects to be discussed include
- Improving business impact with mobile learning
- Improving performance in health
- Innovative approaches to boosting sales and customer loyalty
- The 21st century learning professional
- Working smarter with learning networks
- Coping with the crunch - how can we REALLY deliver more with less
