Dear CEdMA member,

The late Spring CEdMA Europe half-day Workshop will take place on Wed 26 Sep 1300-1700 UK time at IBM Staines (Lotus).

How to Demonstrate the Value of Training
led by
Phil Lawman, formerly EMEA Director of Training, HP
Philip Bourne, Worldwide Director of Curriculum Development, Symantec

How often have we heard senior leadership state that 'people are our greatest asset', followed by the inevitable requirement to cut training costs because human capital continues to be seen as an expense rather than an investment. In the ever demanding world we find ourselves, we need to show that training courses and enablement activities should be viewed in the same way as capital investments.  Using techniques like ROI and value to the business this workshop will provide you with ideas, methods and approaches to justify the training expense something you should consider with more economic turmoil on its way in Europe.


1300   Coffee and Networking
1330   Introduction
How to Demonstrate the Value of Training - Phil Lawman and Philip Bourne
1515   Break and Networking
1545   Breakout groups
1630   Report back
1700   Close and Networking

Here is the printable agenda.

Please let Mike know if you or any of your colleagues will be attending, so that we can make sure we have enough seats, coffee, biscuits, and so on.

We shall send out joining instructions around 19 September.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Mike Dowsey, Executive Director,
on behalf of the Board of CEdMA Europe
