Are You a Learning Leader?

Written by — Posted in E-Learning Industry

Can you answer “YES!” to these questions?

  • Is your training content engaging?

  • Do your learners rave about your courses?
  • Does your program have proven results?

We’re looking for a smashingly successful training program that’s wowed management, saved your organization money, made your life easier, and, most importantly, helped people learn like never before. Hey, even if your program’s done a couple of these things, I want to know about it.

award_te.gif We want to encourage you to be a Learning Leader in the Technology Excellence category of a new program from Bersin & Associates. We’re looking for the best of the best. You’ll be famous and get to be the cool kid on the block. You’ll be featured in the March 2007 issue of Elearning! Magazine, as well as in an upcoming report by Bersin & Associates.

The catch? Your learning program needs to have been in place since at least 2005 or earlier, and needs to be Articulate-powered. (Well, technically, it doesn’t really have to be built with Articulate software, but I’d sure prefer if it is!)

The Bersin & Associates Learning Leaders Program is a research-driven program designed to recognize innovation and excellence in critical areas of corporate training.

Bersin & Associates will recognize 15 organizations which have developed and implemented unique and innovative approaches to learning and development resulting in significant business improvement.

So are you ready to see your name in lights or what? I hope so! What’s next?

Hurry! The deadline’s quickly approaching — August 31st — so please drop me a line ASAP to let me know you’re interested. Then get the ball rolling by applying directly with Bersin & Associates.

Oh, and there are three categories, so don’t worry if you’re a one-woman shop or a Fortune 500 company.

Clever marketing ploy I like it. Is that 500 dollar “entrance fee” refundable if you are not selected ? What a rip off!

Hi Nicholas-

Most contests or programs like this do have some kind of entrance fee, and this one is no exception. According to this question in the FAQs, the fee is non-refundable.

Personally, I think the fee is a small price to pay to get the kind of in-depth publicity that the winners will no doubt get.

Perhaps Bersin & Associates should consider different fee scales for companies in each category, though, since $500 is a drop in the bucket for a Fortune 500, but could be quite a bit of money for a smaller organization, so I do understand your concern.
