Brinkerhoff and AITD 2013

So I didn’t post last night mainly because I had been awake since 4.00am travelling down to Melbourne for the pre-conference workshop with Robert Brinkerhoff and what a fantastic workshop it was.

As a lot of you know I am a huge fan of Robert’s work, his books on high impact learning and success case method evaluation have been an enormous influence on the way in which I think about organisational learning.

Robert went through his High Impact Learning process and how to implement it inside organisations. He shared stories and challenged us to think differently around how as learning and development people interact with the business.

If the rest of the conference is as fantastic as yesterday’s workshop it will be one of the best yet.

One Response to Brinkerhoff and AITD 2013

    I’ve also been a fan of Brinkerhoff’s ever since meeting him at an ASTD conference 6 years ago. He was followed around the conference by a coterie of groupies, like a rock star. You’d think this sort of adulation would feed one’s ego, but the truth is Rob is a really nice guy. Humble, unassuming – he simply wants to help organizations perform better through more effective learning. He’s been a real influence on me, both professionally and personally.
