Professional Services e-learning Forum meeting 14 March

by Viv Cole on February 23, 2012

As an L&D professional working in one of the UK’s leading accountancy or legal firms, do you wonder how other firms are taking advantage of mobile and social technologies in L&D? Why not find out by meeting your peers? 

When I was working for Deloitte in L&D, it baffled me why firms did not spend more time and energy comparing notes on trends, issues, suppliers and more. That’s why I founded the Professional Services e-learning Forum.

The main themes will be mobile and social. Some stats re Mobile courtesy of Dom Mason from Line:

  • Cisco research claims that staff spend 25-80% of their time at work away from their desks
  • iPass 2011 survey says 75% of staff use apps to assist in day-to-day work
  • RIM, makers of Blackbery,  claim that staff who have access to services through smart phone spend an extra 25 minutes a day working productively

Whilst these stats might not be representative of behaviour in your firm, they’re indicative of why top management would buy the importance of mobile.

The event on 14 March is kindly being hosted by Andrew Smail @ Deloitte. If you’d like to attend and I’ve been too negligent to invite you, do get in touch.

Also look out for the Professional Services e-learning Forum group on Linkedin.

If you’d like to join the debate, or have a good old fashioned heckle, tweet along at #pself
