Inspiring Positive Change in the USA – ASTD 2013

What's the changing landscape of learning in business?

It has been an exciting few days on the other side of the Pacific. Be Learning’s US based Director Miriam Tassone and Sydney’s own Dimity MacDiarmid travelled all the way to Dallas, Texas to share our knowledge of the industry with many other great names in the learning industry during ASTD 2013.

One of our favourite topics is of course “Loving a Digital Learning Life“, so you can imagine how thrilled we were to share our own experiences! In the digital economy, why is storytelling so powerful for learning? What are the key components of storytelling? Miriam and Dimity provided all the answers. They showed how to translate this into the digital landscape and invited the crowd to imagine the application of digital storytelling in their own workplace. The positive reactions and feedback we received were overwhelming and very inspiring.

Be Learning was awarded an opportunity to share our knowledge and insights on the emerging trends and changing industry landscape. Our lovely ladies discussed this topic with a room full of industry distributors and suppliers and invited participants to do the same with their knowledge and predictions for the future. The result was a creative and energetic exchange and sharing of ideas and aspirations.

It was an exhausting couple of days, but it was very well worth it. With fresh new ideas and new, interesting contacts, Dimity and Miriam now return to their desk, sharing their findings with the team. Want to know more?
