Last week on the show we had James McLuckie join us to share his advice for winning an award, and this week - as we're approaching Oscars season - we thought we'd host our own award show: where the nominees haven't entered, the winners don't get anything, and the only criteria is what we think was interesting or cool in 2022.

So, in this episode of The Mind Tools L&D Podcast, Ross G, Gemma, Nahdia and Owen are going to reveal their winners from the following shortlists:

Book of the Year


Guest of the Year


Episode of the Year


Technology of the Year


Tweet of the Year


L&D Pro of the Year


During the discussion, Gemma referenced the book Statistics without Tears, from Penguin:

In ‘What I Learned This Week’, Gemma recommended the book Cairngorm John, by John Allen:

Ross recommended the film Cliffhanger.
