Cath Convery, of Explosive Learning Solutions.

Cath Convery, Head of Learning at Explosive Learning Solutions (ELS)., will be speaking at Project Challenge, at London’s Olympia, on 22nd and 23rd March.

Intended for those whose focus is on projects – in any capacity - Project Challenge aims to promote project management operational excellence and best practice.

Called ‘Change – it isn’t a soft science!’ and taking place from 10.30am on 23rd March, Convery’s presentation takes the view that change should be based on valid, reliable data. Moreover, she believes, many parts of a change project - including the communication plan and the training intervention – need to be integrated to achieve success.

Convery said, “ELS, a leading learning and development consultancy, has been involved in many change initiatives where connecting data, the communication plan and the training programme have been key to the initiative’s success. Exploring ways in which these links have been brought together, the talk also explores John Kotter’s views about the fear of change and how to motivate people to face the future and take action – ideas which, notably, he explored in the book, ‘Our Iceberg Is Melting.’”

ELS works with professional institutes, awarding bodies and other organisations to deliver nationally and internationally recognised qualifications. These include programmes in change management, facilitation, Lean Six Sigma, Lean IT, cyber security awareness, coaching & mentoring, leadership & management, along with specific qualifications in PRINCE2(R), M_o_R(R) and PMQ for PRINCE2(R).

Typically, as part of the training process in a programme, ELS can provide both qualitative and quantitative evidence of learning. It can do this via the use of Formic’s software for evaluations, assessments and exams, allied to the use of learning management and learning content management systems from Kenexa.

In addition to Convery speaking at the event, ELS is also exhibiting at Project Challenge – showcasing these products that enable users to collect key data as part of a change project. Both Project Challenge and Cath Convery’s presentation are free to attend.
