Last week saw the Administrate team hold our fifth LITE Conference in Scotland's capital city and home of our headquarters, Edinburgh!

For the third year in a row, CodeBase was the home of our conference, which is also the location of our Edinburgh offices, and we were delighted to welcome so many customers to Administrate HQ.

This year day one focussed on speakers presentations, while day two was all about customer focus groups. We also ran one-to-one sessions for our customers throughout both days to give them the chance to get some personalized time with members of the Administrate team!

Technical Training Management - Mike Dowsey (CEdMA)

LITE 2019

Learning in the 21st century places new demands on learners to use technology to access, analyze, and organize information. It places responsibility on learning providers to establish an environment that supports creativity, innovation, communication, collaboration, problem-solving, decision making and engagement with the learner, to ensure learning occurs within the context of the real-world environment they are involved with.

In April, CEdMA Europe launched the book Technical Training Management - Commercial Skills Aligned to the Provision of Successful Training Outcomes by Philip Bourne, its Non-Executive Director.

This session looked at the rationale behind the book, briefly described the contents, but more importantly invited the audience to comment on the next phase of providing value-add segments leading to knowledge-based badges, skills and experience badges, and eventually performance-based certification.

Behave Yourself: An Innovative Approach to Managing Difficult People and Conflict - Jay Johnson (Coeus Creative Group)

LITE 2019

Difficult people: we all know them, we all have to deal with them. From co-workers to collaborators, audiences to auditors, and design to delivery, professionals in the talent development and learning industry encounter difficult behaviors daily. However, are bad behaviors worth us having a heart attack? Using a unique perspective of Behavioral Intelligence - a framework built on disciplines of psychology, neuroscience, and communication - Jay walked participants through tools and tactics to prevail over interpersonal conflict. This entertaining and engaging performance explores the who, what, when, where, and why of difficult behaviors and the strategies we need to overcome them.

RBS - Transforming the Learner Experience - Gavin McQuillan (RBS)
