Huthwaite International, world-leading behaviour change experts for sales professionals, has joined forces with Robin Hoyle of Learnworks Ltd as part of its ongoing strategy to enhance and develop its corporate learning and training expertise. Together they will focus on advancing and promoting new technologies meant to embed further behaviour change and generate a greater return on investment for a global portfolio of clients.
Robin has over 30 years’ experience in the learning and development (L&D) field and has worked all over the world. So far he has published two successful books – Complete Training and Informal Learning in Organizations – and he is much in demand as an advisor and conference speaker. As Chair of the World of Learning Conference, Robin enjoys a pivotal position in the world of corporate training and capability development.
Robin comments: “Huthwaite International have always laid significant store by the evidence base of their approaches, matching my own commitment to ensuring that capability building is best based on the strong foundations of proven methodologies. Huthwaite was also one of the first companies to investigate how technology based learning could add value to behavioural training programmes. This appetite for innovation allied to a proven commitment to a strong evidence base created a meeting of minds and a great opportunity for the future.”
Robin, who has had a longstanding informal collaboration with Huthwaite International, will be consulting with the company on all aspects of their learning technology offering. Along his career he has won numerous awards for blended learning and eLearning design, and was twice shortlisted for the outstanding contribution to the training industry award.
Huthwaite International CEO Tony Hughes adds: “We welcome Robin’s experience, insight and practical expertise to our team. Huthwaite International offerings today are enriched by advanced learning technology and fully embrace digital training, as things like Virtual SPIN® and the forthcoming SPIN® App attest. Innovations like these will always be crucial in ensuring that we can offer our clients sustainable training and reinforcement options to suit the ways they want to learn – and Robin is one of the great innovators.”
