Matthew Syed, best-selling author of Bounce and Black Box Thinking, has been confirmed as a keynote speaker at the internationally renowned World of Learning Conference & Exhibition taking place this year on 19 & 20 October at Birmingham’s NEC.
World of Learning 2016 features opportunities to discover the latest in L&D with over 100 exhibitors, The Technology Test Drive, Learning Design Live, live workshops, one-to-one consultations and free seminars.
The world class World of Learning conference is a platform where expert speakers share industry knowledge and strategies, along with tactics to make an immediate business impact. Joining L&D experts from around the UK, Matthew will be opening the first day of the conference with a focus on how motivated learners drive a culture of high performance and optimal business results.
In his keynote speech Driving learner motivation – the positive business effects, Matthew will examine how to create a culture of performance excellence through continuous learning and growth. He’ll demonstrate how a positive learning culture which reduces or eliminates the fear of failure by confronting and learning from it can dramatically increase learner motivation and the willingness to try new things. These motivated learners are better able to drive performance excellence and so deliver maximum results for business.
In the bespoke presentation for the World of Learning audience, Matthew will share compelling examples from healthcare, aviation, business, sport and the criminal justice system to highlight how to drive learner motivation through a growth culture and the difference that that can have on performance and growth – both at an individual level and at an organisational level.
Matthew Syed’s accomplished table tennis career, which saw him compete at two Olympic Games for Great Britain, gave him an early interest in performance culture. As well as authoring two acclaimed books – Bounce and Black Box Thinking, he is also an award-winning journalist who writes for The Times and is regular contributor to radio and television. An experienced keynote speaker around the world, Matthew empowers teams and individuals to create a high performance culture in their organisations.
