What’s the event about?

Following a successful edition earlier this year in London (read more about it here), ‘Future-proof your training business’, or FPYTB, is now coming to the North of the UK and landing in Manchester.

This event is aimed at owners and directors of training organisations, including senior managers/directors of organisations that deliver training to their customers or their members. It will be an afternoon where they can learn from the speakers and each other by networking with other senior people from training businesses.

What can I expect?

The aim of FPYTB is for attendees to gather clear insights into market trends in the learning industry and have a better understanding of what technologies, skills, and resources can be valuable for training businesses.

At the Manchester edition, there will be contributions by John Trasler, president of the EADL and director of Elearn Ltd., who will be talking about how to successfully scale up a training business. Roy de Vries, online didactical specialist at aNewSpring, who will cover how to improve training output with blended learning. And Phil Aspden, director at eGenius Ltd., will talk about the movement from formal to informal learning. Below, you’ll find a more detailed program.

The afternoon will be interactive, and there will be enough opportunity to share experiences and ask your specific questions. There is a networking lunch to start the afternoon, and at the end of the day, we will finish with drinks to make sure you have the time to meet the speakers and your fellow participants.
