For almost three decades, Adrian Segar has been designing and facilitating participant-driven and participation-rich meetings.  His book, Conferences That Work: Creating Events That People Loveis the how-to manual for stepping outside the realm of the traditional conference model to create peer conferences, which are highly interactive, attendee-driven events that uniquely leverage attendees' expertise and experience.

And his new book, Event Crowdsourcing: Creating Events People Actually Want and Need - available in November 2019 - addresses how to create conference programs that reliably become what your attendees want and need—each and every time.

In this episode of the Leading Learning Podcast, Celisa talks with Adrian about the key elements of peer conferences, how they benefit attendees, and ways they address shortcomings of traditional conferences. They also discuss common obstacles to implementing the peer conference model and suggestions for how to effectively blend peer conferences with traditional conferences.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff help you answer this sometimes daunting question and provide 5 key aspects of getting a high return on your LMS investment including: new revenue generation, cost savings, general value perception, user experience, and fulfillment of vision and mission.

As a globally recognized leadership expert, the Out of the Comfort Zone radio show host coaches leaders, conducts seminars and works with teams to improve their leadership capability.

 In this episode of the Leading Learning Podcast, Jeff talks with Wanda about the qualities of great leaders including the importance of quality conversations and the necessary mindset to be an effective leader.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff discuss this valuable concept of leverage as it relates to lifelong learning and learning businesses. They talk about the importance of vision and insight and also highlight critical ways to achieve leverage including technology, curation, community, and metalearning.

If we had to pick just one thing as the crux of the success of a learning business we’d definitely argue it would have to be the learning experiences—the products and services that are actually offered. That’s because the learning experiences that learning businesses provide are at the essence of what they do.

But in order to effectively do this, we need to have a solid understanding of adult learning theory. And although many of us are already familiar with concepts related to this, there can be tremendous value in taking time to periodically revisit them.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff examine the principles of adult learning theory – specifically related to the need to know, self-concept, and experience - and the implications each of these has on designing, developing, and delivering meaningful learning experiences.

Here’s a question: how would you say most people define marketing?

Our suspicion - based on a lot of experience - is that when most people think of marketing, they think of advertising, or other forms of promotion. But there's much more to marketing than promotion - and even promotion has more to it than many appreciate.

In this episode, we cover the 4 Ps of marketing - product, pricing, place, and - yes - promotion. We consider each P in detail and, of course, each one applies in the  context of a learning business.

Here’s a statement to consider: “You can learn new things, but you can’t really change how intelligent you are.” Would you say you mostly agree or disagree? And how about this statement: “No matter what kind of person you are, you can always change substantially.” Do you mostly agree or mostly disagree?

According to Dr. Carol Dweck, author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, your answers to questions like these can reveal a lot about you when it comes to learning—specifically, whether you possess a fixed or growth mindset. And because mindset impacts multiple levels of what we do as learning businesses, it’s an important concept to be aware of and understand.

In this episode of the Leading Learning podcast, Celisa and Jeff discuss the idea of mindset including Dweck’s research on the topic, how it affects us personally and the impact it has on learners and learning businesses.

What do you get when you provide a learning experience that’s truly meaningful? According to this week’s guests on the podcast, Nancy Bacon and Mark Nilles, you create something “learningful”. And when it comes to creating impactful, “learningful” conferences, these two have teamed up to share what it takes in their recent e-book, Conferences That Make a Difference.

Nancy is a teacher and instructional designer who has worked for over 20 years in the nonprofit sector. For the past five years, she’s led Washington Nonprofits’ learning program, and she currently serves as the associate director there. She also occasionally writes on adult learning through her blog at ChunkFlipGuideLaugh.com.

Mark currently serves as the director of learning and impact at Humentum. His work has focused on developing evidence-based teaching and learning approaches for improved workplace performance. And his perspective is informed by years of training and capacity building for international development and humanitarian relief professionals around the world.

In this episode of Leading Learning, Celisa talks with Nancy and Mark about key concepts from their new e-book, including the importance of a conference strategy, how and why to ensure presenters are prepared, and the need for reflection time—both for participants as well as for the internal team responsible for planning the event. They also discuss ways to support continued learning after the conference is over.
