For three years, we've had the ridiculous privilege of producing The GoodPractice Podcast. It's given us the opportunity to speak to some of the biggest names in Learning & Development, it's challenged our thinking, and - we hope - contributed in some small way to the conversations that are shaping our industry.

In this, our 150th episode, we asked some of our favourite guests to join Ross G and Owen for our 3rd birthday party at The Hand & Flower pub in London.

We were joined by Michelle Parry-Slater, founder of Kairos Modern Learning; by Gemma Critchley, Head of Technology & Innovation for Learning at Aviva; and by Andy Lancaster, Head of Learning & Development Content at the CIPD, who is writing a book.

We discussed the past, present and future of learning, including:

  • how traditional classroom education has shaped what we do today
  • the tension between the need to learn from mistakes and organisations' tolerance for risk
  • what the future of learning and development holds.

A special shout-out this week to those faces behind-the-scenes who make this podcast possible, but are never mentioned: Jade Stewart, Nicola Boyle, Sai Cook, Yaz Serrano and Al Roy.

Also to Ross Dickie, in absentia.
