“17 Essential Tips for L&D…
The critical things you need to be paying attention to!”

I’m Paul Matthews and for the last 18 years, I have worked with organisations to make their learning more effective. This booklet sets out 17 essential L&D strategies that you can use to make positive, lasting change in your organisation.

You will get tips about
  • Change programmes
  • Informal learning
  • Training follow-up
  • Learning strategy
  • Information barriers and many more

I wrote the booklet because a friend of mine moved from a general HR role into one specifically focusing on Learning and Development. She knew I spent a lot of time working with and speaking to L&D people from many different organisations in both the public and private sector, so she asked me “What should I be paying attention to so that I am successful in my new job?”

It sounds like a simple question, but the more I thought about it, the more I realised the answer was not just repeating what most L&D people have as job descriptions. There was more she needed to know so I wrote out these tips for her. She sent them to her colleagues and they liked them too.

And that is how the first little 32-page booklet came to be.

I am pleased to say that she is loving her time in L&D, where she feels as if she is making a much bigger difference than before, and what she does really matters. She is doing well and I would like to think that those original 15 tips started her off on the right foot and helped her focus on the things she needed to do to be successful.

I sincerely hope they help you as well.

The first booklet had 15 tips. After thousands of downloads and printed copies, it has now been updated and reprinted as the fourth edition with 17 tips.

I am sure you will find it as thought-provoking as Tony, a Training Manager who read the tips and then said “This is a brilliant list of tips. People will ignore tips 7 and 11 at their peril!”

Marie (L&D Consultant)

“I was surprised how many valuable ideas you packed into such a small booklet. I read it several times, stopping at each tip to think how it related to me and what I am doing. Every time I came up with new ideas. Many thanks.”
