Learning & development (L&D) professionals will once again come together to discuss the opportunities and challenges around designing learning programmes that makes a difference, in an exclusive event hosted by Nick Shackleton-Jones.

Taking place on Wednesday 5 October, the hybrid event – Creating a Winning Culture Through L&D – will be hosted at Warwick Conferences, with Nick Shackleton-Jones exploring ways to deliver a new model of learning that fits the modern workplace.

In a time where retaining staff is growing in importance, the event will aid L&D professionals in redesigning onboarding processes and programmes that help create a sense of workplace culture. It follows research by PwC from earlier this summer, which showed that almost 20% of UK workers expected to leave their job in the next 12 months. With businesses looking for ways to keep their staff, more attention is expected to turn towards L&D professionals.

During the 50-minute event, Nick will explain why we struggle to see a return on expectations, providing examples of award-winning onboarding work related to a human-centred learning design. Those attending in-person will be given the opportunity to take part in an intimate Q&A session with Nick, allowing professionals to further understand specific areas of focus.

Nick Shackleton-Jones, CEO and Founder of Shackleton Consulting, said: “We have seen a complete shift in workplace cultures in the last 24 months. Flexible working is now the first element advertised on job descriptions, with many companies adopting some form of work-from-home policy. It is therefore unsurprising that employers are facing challenges in engaging their team and recreating a workplace culture that existed before the pandemic.

“It’s imperative that, given the challenges surrounding staff retention that organisations currently face, employers must evolve their approach to L&D. Businesses must utilise the opportunities to meet the current needs of today’s workforce by focusing on experiences, providing a successful return on expectations.”

Nick Shackleton-Jones is the CEO and Founder of Shackleton Consulting. He offers leading thinking and proven expertise, having helped organisations measurably improve the performance and experience of their employees through a revolutionary approach to L&D.

Creating a Winning Culture Through L&D will be the second in a series of events hosted by Warwick Conferences supporting the L&D industry. Earlier this year, the award-winning venue hosted the Learning & Performance Institute and other industry professionals to discuss the industry trends and challenges.

Gail Tomlinson-Short, Head of Business Development at Warwick Conferences, said: “As an alumni of the University of Warwick, we are delighted to welcome Nick to our latest L&D event. His proven expertise in helping organisations improve the performance and experience of their employees through a new-found approach to learning and development will prove invaluable to attendees.”
