Press Release: ISM Launch Learning and Development Leaders’ Forum
Last week saw the launch of the ISM’s new Learning and Development Leaders’ Forum which provides ISM Corporate Partners with a platform for engagement to come together, share best practice, discuss common challenges and further inform the work of the ISM.
Chaired by ISM Fellow Andy Gray and hosted by Speedy Services, the first meeting was underpinned by Kirkpatrick’s four levels of Training Evaluation which formed the basis for invaluable, open and honest discussions around common themes relating to supporting Sales professionals and their ongoing development.
Alongside supporting each other with the implementation of Sales training programmes within their respective organisations, the forum will also serve as a benchmarking exercise which will feed into the ISM’s work around upskilling sales professionals around the country.
The forum intend to meet each quarter and will collectively shape each session to ensure mutually beneficial outcomes with an overall aim to positively impact excellent L&D practice in the Sales arena.
The ISM would like to thank the following organisations for their involvement in this new initiative:
Aggregate Industries, BT, Experian, Future Learn, Ground Control, Redrow Homes, Sherwin Williams Coatings, Speedy Services, Starr works Medicash and Yara.
“It is wonderful that the ISM recognise the crucial role of learning and development in ensuring sales best practise. The L&D Leaders Forum provides an opportunity for experts from a broad range of organisations to share their experience and discuss opportunities for sales performance improvement. I personally found it hugely useful to have the chance to meet with likeminded Sales Excellence professionals who share similar ambitions and challenges”.
Paul Fielder – Head of Sales Excellence, Experian.
