Blog Series Part 2: How to get the most out of the 2018 Learning Technologies Conference


As we countdown to the Learning Technologies Conference 2018 in London, we are running a series of articles explaining how to get the most out of this year’s conference. Events like this can be overwhelming, so we have taken the time to break down the companies you need to watch out for, the speakers you need to attend, and key topics likely to feature at the event.

This is the biggest and best show in the learning sector, with more than 8,000 people, 150 seminars, and over 200 exhibitors expected at Olympia in London.

Yesterday, we highlighted three speakers we are eagerly anticipating at next week’s event. Today, we spotlight three companies you should seek out and explain the reasons for their influence in the L&D industry.


Part 2 – The Companies


Change is the most predictable constant in today’s business landscape; as a result, companies need to reinvent themselves regularly. When that happens, it is difficult for training to keep pace with the evolution of the business environment.

Xyleme is an innovative Learning Content Management System that helps learning and development professionals author, publish, deliver, and analyse content more efficiently. As learner needs evolve, Xyleme helps partners bring their visions of the next phase of learning to life. With customized learning and detailed analytics, Xyleme are helping training companies deliver better, more current, training to their learners, no matter the scale. We strongly recommend stopping by their stand at the event.

For more information, here is a case study explaining what Xyleme looks like in practice



If you work an average of 40 hours a week and take roughly 5 weeks holiday per year, you will work nearly 100,000 hours over the course of your lifetime. With people spending roughly one third of their waking life at work, can companies create a positive, engaging workplace culture where people are driven by a sense of purpose? 

Saba is committed to creating a more engaging, inspiring and empowering workplace – to make workplace learning an experience that can transform the working lives of millions, and creates more growth and success for every business. Recognizing that talent management is more than technology, Saba helps organizations achieve their goals and solve their toughest challenges. They use technology to build a vision around business culture. All of Saba’s solutions are built on Saba’s Clout Platform, a reliable and scalable solution that is agile enough to respond to the needs of their clients.

L&D guru Josh Bersin notes that “organizations look more like networks and less like hierarchies”. For this reason, it is more important than ever for learners to take control of their own learning – lifelong learning is becoming a part of every job description.

Degreed allows individuals and businesses to find, track, and recognize ALL learning. By empowering learners to “own their expertise” they tap into the unlimited potential that personalized learning can provide. By offering learning tracks through accredited and non-accredited universities and online courses, Degreed has delivered on its promise to “jailbreak the degree”. They are sure to have an entertaining exhibition at the Learning Technologies event this year.

Check out CEO David Blake’s introduction for more on how Degreed helps enterprise clients.
