Special Guest: Michelle Parry-Slater, Learning & Development Director at Kairos Learning
Michelle spends her days incredibly excited about the possibilities available to everyone involved in workplace learning. Harnessing this energy, she heads up Kairos Modern Learning a specialist consultancy aimed at moving organisations away from old style ‘Injection Education’ traditional courses to embrace the best of digital, social and face to face.
Focusing on practical solutions, using a variety of media channels and Kairos Modern Learning’s 3Rs approach, Michelle supports engagement and creativity in effective, efficient, and enjoyable everyday workplace learning. Alongside collaborations with universities, professionals and corporates such as the CIPD, BBC, and Tunstall Healthcare, Michelle also Tweets often, including a year-long campaign in 2015 tweeting daily at #NoPlasters with practical tips on how to make workplace learning better. That campaign is now being turned into an ebook.
Engaging your team to increase performance: Michelle explores the suggestion that it is the shape of corporate life today that needs changing in order to get the best performance from teams. This starts with really knowing your team, with reviewing the basics of environment, permission and culture in your context, then embedding learning as everyday within your organisation. With a few twists in her view point, Michelle offers practical solutions to increase engagement through increased performance.
