A respected industry expert and speaker, Laura has been conducting workshops and stimulating debate around the globe.

In 2014, she was voted number 1 in the top ten most influential people in the corporate e-learning in the UK and in 2015 she retained the top position in the UK and was also voted 5th in the Global list and 6th in the European list.

According to Ravi Pratap Singh, Co-Founder of Learnnovators, “We are greatly honoured to have Laura Overton as our guest in our interview series today. This interview will help the learning community benefit from the valuable insights Laura shares on modern benchmarking for improving performance.”

In this exclusive interview with Learnnovators, Laura Overton shares her insights on why organizations need to rely on modern benchmarks more than the traditional ones, to improve performance. She explains where our e-learning practices are in this age of workplace learning. Her ideas on the kind of shift required in thinking to build a learning system that aligns with the dynamically changing demands of this knowledge age are invaluable.
