Event Recording

How do other organisations create a culture of learning? What practical approaches do they use?

Join Business Author and Consultant, Chris Collison as he takes us on an interactive tour of some of the world’s most interesting learning organisations in the private and public sector.

  • How do the Red Arrows debrief their displays?
  • How are lessons and insights transferred between editions of the Olympic Games?
  • How does award-winning biotech firm, Syngenta, create a learning culture across 32 countries?
