Sponge and Bolt get seriously creative at Learning Technologies 2020

Join us - Learning Technologies Company of the Year (silver winner) and our sister company Bolt on Stand K50 at this year’s Learning Technologies 2020 at ExCeL London on 12-13 February. 

Together we’ll showcase digital learning that’s as enjoyable for learners as it is measurable for L&D with training that’s inspiring and personalised to your requirements with two free-to-attend seminars and a demo at the event.

If we missed you at LT2020 don't worry

You can still talk our experts about your learning needs - just complete the form and we'll be right back to you...

Here’s where you’ll find us at the show.

Sponge stand: K50, Exhibition Hall

Come and visit us on stand K50 to experience our latest and greatest client projects. We’ll also be introducing Spark, the next gen learning platform powered by Bolt. Fully customisable and scalable, Spark translates detailed learner data into rich insights via a single cutting-edge platform.

We’ve joined forces with Bolt, following our acquisition by Aliter Capital in November 2019, to form a strategic part of a new learning group. Book a meeting with us to talk about our content and vision – ambitious yet grounded in the art of the doable. Our colleagues at Bolt will also be on hand to talk cutting-edge platforms.

For the first time, delegates will also be able to play the full range of our ‘Sorted’ learning games on our interactive podiums. As always, our friendly team will be available to explain all the customisation options available, including branding elements and language translations.

Join this demo to:

  • Play a ‘true’ learning game based on gamification theory
  • Discover how familiar mechanics make the game easy and enjoyable to play
  • Understand how the game embeds good decision-making around cybersecurity
  • Challenge yourself to see how much you really know about cybersecurity

For the 2nd year running, Louise Vamvoukaki, Director of Global Sustainability Education and Engagement at AstraZeneca, explains how the pharmaceutical company worked in partnership with Sponge to move mandatory compliance training from a ‘must do’ to a ‘want to do’ activity in the ‘Compliance’ session (Track 5 – Implementation).

Louise shares two recent examples of compliance training: ‘Speak Up’ and ‘Code of Ethics 2019’ which prove that compliance can and should be engaging and exciting for learners. Watch Louise’s conference preview here.

Working with Sponge, AstraZeneca’s 2018 Code of Ethics won a Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Award and Training Journal Award in 2019 and is shortlisted for an LPI Learning Award this year.
