Instructional designers, trainers, e-learning developers, learning management system (LMS) administrators, employee and management development professionals, along with organizational development (OD) specialists, are being invited to discover best practices to ensure the maximum return on investment (ROI) in learning and development (L&D).


These essential tips and techniques are being revealed via a webinar, organized by the disruptive Cloud e-learning solutions provider, Docebo, and co-presented by Vado Inc’s CEO, Cindy Pascale, and its VP of Development, Kim Egan.


According to Kim – who has over 15 years’ experience of training design, performance management and competency development – research shows that companies that develop their employees – and do this well – reap big rewards in terms of product innovation, market share and greater efficiency.


“Employee development is a big deal these days and it’s at the top of CEO priority lists. Billions of dollars are being spent on development – and this is ever-increasing,” agreed Cindy who, for more than 16 years, has developed expertise in HR, training & development and OD leadership.


In the webinar, Kim and Cindy will demonstrate:

  • The difference between ‘training’ and ‘development’
  • How that difference affects a development communication plan
  • The definition of ‘scrap learning’
  • How people best develop new skills or capabilities
  • What learners are expecting in their development programs and
  • How to ensure that the development programs will lead to organization success


According to the organizers, the webinar will be an informative, engaging one-hour session that will conclude with five best practices that need to be taken into account in order to ensure that an organization gains maximum ROI for all its L&D activities.


In addition, all attendees are eligible for continuing education credits, awarded by the Human Resources Certification institute (HRCI).


In the research-rich webinar, participants will discover the development best practices that lead to the maximum ROI for the organization’s development dollar. Specifically, participants will realize:

  1. Why most learning is scrap learning

  3. How to leverage the natural way leaders develop
  4. What is ‘chunked learning’
