e-Learning

Blaenavon based online training and business solutions consultancy RWA, are taking their My Development Zone proposition to the Greek islands later this month having been invited to speak at the 3rd annual Corfu Symposium on Managing and Marketing Places.

A common mistake when contemplating a company brand is to focus wholly on the logo, for example, the McDonald’s brand to many would be the unmistakable Golden Arches or the Nike brand is the ‘Just do it’ tick. However, it is safe to say that a company brand is embedded much deeper within the organisation, encompassing the personality of the company, its style, products, services, culture, internal and external relationships and values.

Imagine that you visited your doctor tomorrow for advice and discovered that she hadn’t updated her knowledge or skills since she qualified 20 years ago.  How confident would you feel about taking her advice?

Our daily interactions are something we take for granted and probably manage at a subconscious level. We are constantly interacting with different stimuli, whether it is in our daily conversations, when watching TV, in the classroom, gaming, working on our computers or visiting a shop. Pretty much everything we do includes a form of interaction.

Different professional bodies will have different requirements but fundamentally, it’s agreed that there are two types: structured and unstructured.

As children we have an innate love of stories and many of us take that love into adulthood as we choose the escapism of a good book or movie to fill our free time. Through these stories we have subliminally learnt lessons such as, never trust the advice of a man in difficulties; appearances can be deceptive; a liar will never be believed; and there’s always someone worse off than yourself. Of course all these examples come from Aesop’s Fables but when deconstructing any story you will always find a message and you will also realise that somehow you’ve uncovered and understood that message.

As the year progresses, you may be finding that resolutions set on the 1st of January have lost momentum or been forgotten about. Even with the best of intentions, juggling both life and work pressures can de-rail your personal and professional goals.

RWA CEO, Tom Wood, went live online this week in an interview with Noah Geisel (2013 ACTFL National Language Teacher Of The Year) about our successes with Open Badges on our Aviva Development Zone e-learning platform.

A big well done to the whole RWA e-Learning team who successfully made it through to the final of the prestigious e-Learning Awards in London last week.
