Learning Light on the ‘international speaker circuit’

Two executives from Learning Light (LL), a non-profit organisation seeking to establish itself as a centre of excellence in the use of learning technologies in the workplace, are waving the flag for ‘UK learning’ abroad over the next month or so.

Mark Pittaway, Learning Light (LL)’s CEO, and Jon Ingham, one of LL’s research associates are addressing learning-related meetings around the globe over the next few weeks.

Pittaway will be the UK’s ‘representative for e-learning’ when he goes to Saudi Arabia at the end of April, on a Department for Trade & industry (DTI) sponsored trade mission in the field of education and learning.

Ingham is speaking at the HR Forum – now in its 12th year – which is being held on board the Aurora, in May.

The Forum, which is organised by Richmond Events and attracts several hundred top HR practitioners, takes place during a cruise on the English Channel. Participants set sail from Southampton on the Aurora on 9th May and return on 12th May.

"It is pleasing to see that LL is gaining a worldwide reputation for its knowledge of, and skill in, the development of learning technologies," Pittaway commented. "Naturally, LL is delighted to be ‘flying the flag’ for the UK in Saudi Arabia, as well as being able to contribute to enhancing the knowledge of the UK’s top HR practitioners on the subject of human capital management."
