Will you be crowdsourcing your next CEO?

Paul MacCartney speaking for Saffron Interactive at Learning Technologies Conference 2013.

What is crowdsourcing and what does it mean for your organisation? Paul MacCartney, former president of global talent development company MindLeaders, will answer this question when he speaks on behalf of Saffron Interactive at the Learning Technologies Conference on 29 January 2013.

‘Crowdsourcing has transformed the way consumers and companies approach information,’ says Paul. ‘As more and more of us leverage the power of the crowd to make better decisions about what we do and buy, organisations need to think about integrating crowdsourcing into learning and talent strategy.’

Paul MacCartney is a world renowned e-learning and talent management thought leader with more than twenty five years’ experience in the industry. He’ll be offering conference delegates compelling case studies on the ‘power of the crowd’, advice about low-cost social media tools and hints and tips to leverage the crowd for organisational improvement.

The seminar sponsor, Saffron Interactive, is a social learning specialist and develops bespoke e-learning courses on talent and performance management for clients including Deutsche Bank and BT.

‘Paul is certainly going to be ruffling a few feathers with this presentation,’ says Saffron CEO Noorie Sazen. ‘We are only just beginning to understand the real significance of crowdsourcing for driving organisational development; this presentation marks a big step forward for the European talent community.’

Paul’s presentation takes place at 3.30pm on 29 January at the Learning Technologies Conference in Kensington Olympia. To find out more, you can read his guest post on Saffron’s Spicy Learning Blog or contact Saffron Interactive directly.
