My presentation from the Learning Performance Institute Learning Directors Network session in July 2014. Exploring the Social Age of learning and it's impacts on learning design for both organisations and individuals.

The Session explores Social Learning and Leadership, the role of Communities, the Social Contract between organisations and individuals and the need for us to protect those who are disenfranchised through technology or culture.

It also includes the early iterations of my latest work around Creativity and Innovation in organisations.
