The learning journey continues...

After a particularly difficult 2008 (on the personal front) this year has started with an almighty BANG!

I have been chosen as one of only two UK businesses to receive the Global HR Excellence Award in HR Leadership from the World HRD Congress!

This is a tremendous honour and comes at a time when I have been consolidating my efforts into a more manageable and productive package. The result is POL Group - a collection of different business ventures that focus on:

Training (Instructional Design and Training Delivery)
Learning (EU projects, Interim HRD and Voicing)
Knowledge (Cognitive Mapping and Evaluation)
Quality (Standards in Training, ISO 10015, EFQM)

I know that in times of recession businesses often cut back on their training budgets or slash them altogether - a false short-term solution as this often leads to capacity and capability issues later when there is an eventual up-turn, resulting in more money needing to be spent on re-establishing performance levels of the workforce.
