The CloserStill Learning portfolio, headed up by Mark Penton, is designed around the needs of workplace learning professionals. Consisting of industry leading exhibitions, conferences, online events, communities, learning resources, collaborative tools and knowledge sharing opportunities, it enables L&D professionals to learn, interact and network throughout the year.
Technology is constantly driving change and its adoption in L&D continues to grow at a phenomenal pace. As technology continues to develop new, exciting and increasingly effective ways of reaching and engaging learners, its integration has become vital to the success of every L&D and HR department.
But finding the perfect balance between e-learning and more traditional learning methods is still key to the success of any learning strategy and the CloserStill Learning portfolio puts L&D professionals in touch with the best of both.
