E-learning spreads its European wingsOn 1 Feb 2003 in Personnel Today A third of European workers have experienced some form of e-learning,according to research carried out by the European School of Management andsponsored by training specialists John Matchett Limited (JML). Almost every respondent (460 workers – 81 from the UK and the rest fromacross Europe, although mainly France and Germany) agreed that e-learning willdominate the delivery of learning in the future as people look for interactiveand personalised courses that precisely fit their needs. The survey, The Impact of Age on Learning, found that nearly half of thoseaged between 20 and 29 years and more than 30 per cent of those aged between 30and 39 had some experience of an e-learning programme. Those aged between 40and 49 had the least exposure (21 per cent) but even 22 per cent of those agedover 59 had experienced e-learning. However, it only managed fifth in the listof respondents’ most frequently used methods of learning, with formal trainingcourses proving the most popular, closely followed by ‘asking colleagues’. John Matchett, chairman of JML, said: “This research shows thatalthough e-learning is rapidly establishing itself as an invaluable andcost-effective addition to the trainer’s armoury, suppliers of learningmaterials must be flexible in their approach and have a wide range of learningoptions.” www.jmlnet.com Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

From 1999 she lived in self-imposed exile in Dubai until President Musharraf signed in legislation giving her immunity from corruption charges.She returned to Pakistan on 18th October 2007, when her motorcade was hit by a double suicide attack that killed 136 people.

In an email to the Washington Post, Drew Caputo, a lawyer for the environmental group Earthjustice, said that the administration “almost treat the public like an inconvenience that might slow down or get in the way of them passing out special interest favors to their friends in the industry.” He added, “That’s anti-democratic, and it shows what they really think about the public. It’s also illegal, which is one of the reasons they keep losing environmental cases in court.” Hiking out of Dalton Lake in Idaho – Photo from Getty Images A judge in Idaho put a stop to nearly 1 million acres of oil and gas leases on federal lands, after the Trump administration limited public input on the leases, the Washington Post reports. The ruling came in on February 27, after environmentalists challenged the leasing policy as part of an effort to stop drilling in greater sage-grouse habitat. The Trump administration lifted protections for the sage-grouse last March, in order to provide more leasing opportunities for oil, gas and mining industries, the Washington Post says. The ruling was made by U.S. Chief Magistrate Judge Ronald E. Bush, who called the policy limiting public input “arbitrary and capricious.” That policy rolled out in January 2018, after the Bureau of Land Management sent out an instruction memorandum to “simplify and streamline the leasing process to alleviate unnecessary impediments and burdens, to expedite the offering of lands for lease, and to ensure quarterly oil and gas lease sales are consistently held in accordance with the Mineral Leasing Act…” Due to the court ruling, the 30-day public comment period has now been reinstated.
Know your audience. The adage applies to almost every form of communication. Yet so many choose the wrong medium to deliver that message. And they do it again, again, and again, spending countless dollars and even more time hoping for a different response. The same applies in sales. Whether selling cars, heathier eating, or your credit union, one has to know the audience and communicate in such a way that the message is seen, heard, and felt.I’ve spent 15 years selling software and professional services to public and private sector organizations on all continents. I’ve been fortunate enough to live and work in some of the most recognizable financial centers in the world. But no matter what the product or service, the first step is always the same: identify the buyer.Who are you selling to? Where do they live? What do they need? When are they available? Why would they be interested in talking to you? How do you reach them? How do you provide true value to them?These are all complicated questions that could take weeks and months to answer, and will shift over time. So how can you accelerate this process and reach the new members you seek?Look no further than your existing members. They are the types of people you want. You know where they are and what they need because they use your services every month. You know they like you because they remain members and are in regular contact with you via phone, mail, email, and/or social media.Attracting more of the same types of people as your existing members is as simple as looking at their friends and family. These existing members likely have many contacts in the same city. These contacts likely have similar needs, attitudes and interests as their friends. Friends trust each other and each other’s recommendations. And most importantly, friends know the best way to get in touch with one another.According to a report by Nielsen, 92% of consumers around the world say they trust earned media, such as recommendations from friends and family, above all other forms of advertising, and people are four times more likely to buy when referred by a friend.So give the power to your existing members to refer their friends. And reward those members for inviting others to join them in using your services. Treat those new members well with specific offers or promotions, and soon they, too, will refer their new set of friends. The cycle continues and your member base grows.A referred customer has a 16% higher life-time value.A referred customer is 18% more loyal than a customer acquired through a different method and spends 13.2% more than a non-referred customer.Let your member decide who, when, and how they communicate to their friends. Allowing your existing member to refer their friends using his or her preferred communication method is the key differentiator among referral software platforms. The tool must allow your members to invite their friends using text, email, and social media tools. If not, the message will not be trusted, understood, or accepted.

Lauren Boebert, a Glock-wearing conservative firebrand, won the race for Colorado’s sprawling Third Congressional District on Wednesday, holding the seat for Republicans as they tried to limit their House losses.According to The Associated Press, Ms. Boebert, 33, defeated Diane Mitsch Bush, a former state legislator, in the race for the seat held by Representative Scott Tipton, a Republican toppled by Ms. Boebert in the party primary, the first time a challenger defeated a sitting House member in the state in decades. She did so by portraying Mr. Tipton as insufficiently supportive of President Trump.- Advertisement – Though Colorado is trending more Democratic, the Third Congressional District covers a huge expanse of the state’s more conservative Western Slope, where progressive upscale ski towns, such as Aspen and Steamboat Springs, are interspersed with conservative ranching and working-class communities such as Pueblo and Grand Junction.Ms. Boebert, the owner of a restaurant in Rifle, Colo., where the waitresses openly carry handguns, gained attention for expressing some interest in QAnon, but has since disavowed the baseless conspiracy theory, which maintains that the world is run by a cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles plotting against Mr. Trump. Instead, Ms. Boebert has positioned herself as the antidote to what she has called socialist ideology spreading through Washington, represented by lawmakers such as Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrat of New York. She said she decided to take on Mr. Tipton, a low-profile, conservative congressman, after his office declined to aid a ballot measure preventing Colorado from awarding its electoral votes to the overall national popular vote winner. He did not appear to take the primary challenge seriously and lost.Ms. Mitsch Bush is a former Routt County commissioner and state lawmaker who stressed her bipartisan record and expertise on water issues, always a major concern in Colorado. She said Ms. Boebert was more interested in achieving political celebrity than working on the issues most important to Coloradans. She also attacked Ms. Boebert for backing the Republican drive to overturn the Affordable Care Act.Ms. Boebert was dogged in her campaign by the disclosure of a series of run-ins she had with local police over traffic charges and other conduct, including being arrested on warrants for failure to appear in court.- Advertisement – The congresswoman-elect gained national attention in 2019 when she confronted Beto O’Rourke, then a Democratic candidate for president, at a televised town hall outside Denver over his pledge to confiscate weapons such as semiautomatic assault rifles. “I am here to say, ‘Hell no, you’re not,’” she told Mr. O’Rourke.- Advertisement – A group opposed to her paid for billboards featuring her mug shot at various locations in the district. But many voters in the district were apparently willing to overlook those transgressions and back Ms. Boebert for her pledge to be an aggressive conservative combatant in Congress. – Advertisement –
