Het programma van de L&D Talks 2022 is in opbouw. Het event wordt live georganiseerd op vraag van de Stimulearning-community.

Op deze pagina lees je de eerste 'leerlijn': de internationale keynotes die we verwachten in Brussel.

Stel je eigen L&D Talks samen op donderdag 27 januari 2022.


The first international keynote is Keith Quinn (UK). Keith has 35+ years’ experience in the public services & has spent 30 years in learning & development in one way or another. Since 2003, Keith has taken a lead role for the development and implementation of learning technologies to support workforce development and has won a number of awards for this work including the Microsoft Prize for eLearning and the Guardian Public Service Award for Innovation. His work has also been featured in case studies developed by the Adobe Corporation. He was the UK lead for a project to develop mobile learning for a workforce of 2.5 million staff. He developed his organisation's digital learning strategy & design framework and lead the development of a range of digital learning resources and services. He initiated projects on the development of games-based learning products for the social service sector and initiated a strategy for the use of Open Badges to accredit informal learning.


  • Demographics relevant to the topic
  • Ecosystems v Learning Management Systems (inc. why this important, research finds on patterns of learning and how much time they have for learning per week etc)
  • Detail components of our ecosystem (ie resource portal, open badge platform, public channels, social media, device types, resource types, educational theory supporting the approach etc)
  • Results
  • Next steps - ie what we have in progress to improve our results even further

Learning objectives. Delegates will:

  • develop an understanding of approaches to learning with an evidence base showing their effectiveness
  • be able to make informed decisions regarding effective learning strategies and learning designs
  • understand and be able to replicate strategies to encourage learners to become self-managing

The second keynote is Nigel Paine (UK). Nigel has been involved in corporate learning for over twenty-five years. He was appointed in early 2002 to head up the BBC’s Learning and Development operation. Under his leadership, his excellent team transformed the learning function and put it on the corporate map.

He left the BBC in October 2006 to start his own company that is focused on building great workplaces by promoting creativity, innovation, values based-leadership and learning and the link between them. He shares his insights with many companies around the world.

He helped build the CLO Doctoral Program at the University of Pennsylvania and is still associated with it. He has written three recent books: the first is called, The Learning Challenge: Dealing with Technology, Innovation and Change in Learning and Development. His second, focusses on leadership development and came out in 2016. It is called Building Leadership Development Programmes That Work. His new book: Workplace Learning: How to Build a Culture of Continuous Employee Development was published in January 2019.

He presents a monthly TV Programme (Learning Now TV), shares a weekly podcast (with Martin Couzins) called From Scratch. He regularly speaks at conferences, writes articles for magazines and journals about development, technology and leadership and works with organizations to improve their culture and their learning impact.


This session will look at the great revolution in organizational learning that never took off: the concept of the learning organization driven forward by a learning culture. It will explain what that means, why it is so important, and what the implications are for those working in HR and L&D.

Given the increases in uncertainty, and the abrupt changes we have experienced in the business environment, it would seem to me that it is critical to break out of the same old, same old jelly mould. We have to build agile organizations with a workforce self-determined learners as skilled at generative learning as they are at productive learning.

Learning outcomes. Delegates will

  • have a clear understanding of what a learning culture is and is not...
  • understand the link between self-determined learners, innovation and a learning culture...
  • have debated the importance of learning organizations...
  • worked out critical next steps in the journey to more agile organizations.

The fourth keynote of the day is An Coppens (UK) is a leading expert in gamification for learner and employee engagement, with over 15 years experience in creating behaviour change through creative and innovative solutions. Her company Gamification Nation, won the Outstanding Gamification Agency Award in 2017 at Gamification Europe and the Excellence in No-Tech Gamification Design in 2018 at GamiCon 18. In 2018 she was listed in the elite of e-learning professionals.

Another international keynote is Jake Rosch (CH). Jacob has been implementing the principles of blended learning for over 15 years in schools in the USA, UK and Switzerland. He is currently the Director of Educational Technology at Collège du Léman in Switzerland. In this role, he has led his institution in implementing blended learning based on a framework he co-created. In addition, Jacob has conducted academic research on the importance of peer dialogue. Jacob has published articles, books and presented at over twenty conferences on his work.


The best L&D comes from within an organisation so why not DIY. This interactive session will help attendees begin to create their own training programmes based on Jacob's blended learning best practices.

This session will lead participants through:

  • Learn blended learning best practices
  • Create a professional development workshop series
  • Identify stakeholders to help you build your programme

Another international keynote is Patricia Riddell (UK). She has a unique combination of skills that allows her to bring neuroscience solutions to individuals and organisations. She was awarded her BSc from the University of Glasgow, and an MSc from Imperial College, before receiving a doctorate in Physiological Sciences from Oxford University. Patricia teaches at Henley Business School on the MSc in Coaching and Behavioural Change and MA in Leadership programmes where she brings her knowledge of Applied Neuroscience to learning. She also researches areas including learning and memory, motivation and leadership. Patricia co-authored “The Neuroscience of Leadership Coaching” published in 2016. This book uses case studies to demonstrate how a knowledge of neuroscience can increase both understanding of coaching and flexibility in the tools that coaches use.

Patricia Riddell will bring this keynote: LEARNING WITH THE BRAIN IN MIND

Learning and development professionals need to carefully consider the role of memory when planning training. An awareness of how the brain remembers information can help enormously when designing programmes to help people learn best. In this session, a number of key questions about how the brain learns best will be answered. Practical advice on how this can be incorporated into individual, team and organisational learning will also be provided.

Learning and memory are intertwined. Indeed, the function of learning is to put information into memory so that it can be accessed when required at a later date. Thus, one key question for L&D experts to consider is what does the brain store and how does it do this? To answer this, we need to better understand how memory works and what makes it fallible. We also need to know what the brain chooses to pay attention to and what it ignores. Another question might be what stops learning from being ‘sticky’ and transferable from the training room to the workplace? The answer to this lies in how we break old and create better habits of learning both individually and organisationally.

Learning and memory can sometimes fail us, but there are ways to harness it to ensure learning remains sticky and can be recalled not just in the short term but also in the long term.

In this session you will:

  • learn how the brain makes and stores memories and therefore what learning professionals can do to create stickier memories
  • understand how organisations can develop bad learning habits and how to change these for the better
  • take away practical advice on how to increase learning in the workplace based on how our brains work
