BLA announces line-up for 'international opportunities' event

The British Learning Association (BLA) and UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) have announced the programme line-up for their 'International opportunities for learning & development' event which takes place on Wednesday 22nd February 2006 at the DTI Conference Centre, London.

The aim of the event is to encourage providers in the learning & development sector to engage with international export opportunities.

The organisers say delegates will have the chance to review case studies of those already active in international markets with discussion on the support available to help them take up export opportunities and achieve success. The programme, announced yesterday, includes:

  • Forging International Alliances
    Sesh Sukhdeo, managing director - KSA Global and Associate International for PSL (Partnership Sourcing Ltd.)
  • The Export Game: selling games-based e-learning Overseas
    Kevin Corti, MD - PIXELearning
  • Opportunities for Associates
    Mike Long, MD - Mike Long Associates
  • Breaking into the Indian market place
    Laurie Dobson, CEO - ISV Software
  • Helping you succeed in the global market
    Graham Snape, sector adviser - education & training - UKTI
  • Accreditation: a British USP
    James O'Connell, chief executive - Institute of Paralegals

Brian Merison, general manager of the BLA said, "The programme shows the tremendous range and scope of organisations, large and small, that have found opportunities in international markets. There is no doubt that the UK's education and Learning & Development sector is widely respected overseas which places UK companies at a distinct advantage when doing business internationally.

"By partnering with UKTI for this event we aim to highlight not only how a number of organisations in this sector have secured international business but also the real support and assistance that is available from UKTI and the difference this makes."

Richard Parry, head of unit, education skills & leisure at UKTI, added: "UK Trade & Investment is delighted to be holding an event with the BLA on the 22nd February. We see this forum as an important first step in creating a partnership which will benefit both organisations.

"We want to be able to transmit market opportunities and practical export support to the UK's skills development sector, and a close link with the BLA will help us do so. And we hope that easy access to UKTI's facilities will assist the BLA at corporate and individual member level."

The organisers say the event is aimed at learning providers across all media and markets, e-learning content & systems providers in organisations, colleges and universities, educators, consultants, practitioners, RDAs and chambers of commerce, with an interest in developing international market opportunities and partnerships for their products and services.
