World of Learning Finalists Announced


Barclays, Linklaters, McDonald’s Restaurants and the National Grid are among the organisations short-listed as finalists for next month's World of Learning Awards 2007.

The awards aim to recognise and reward the leading new learning initiatives and venues of 2007 as well as individuals whose outstanding achievements have notably improved workplace productivity and performance.

The winners will be unveiled at a black-tie dinner on 14 November at the NEC, Birmingham, hosted by Dominic Holland, the Perrier Award-winning comic and successful author. With hundreds of leading industry figures attending the Awards and dinner, and with high-class entertainment and dancing into the small hours to follow, it promises to be the social and networking highlight of the training industry’s year.

Jim Reilly, project manager for the World of Learning Awards, said: “I wish to congratulate all the organisations who are finalists this year. The standard of entries has been remarkably high and the ceremony promises to be an evening not to be missed.”
