We were delighted to team up with CDSM at the CIPD Learning & Development Show in May to show case our 'blended learning' approach.


We were joined by Rachel Mattia, learning and development manager for Anglian Home Improvements to talk about the journey she has taken with CAKE & CDSM in transforming the learning approach of her organisation.


The whole show was busy and very well attended. It was great to catch up with our colleagues and peers from the L&D community and meet so many new people on our stand. We enjoyed every conversation we had. We were so impressed with the dedication to learning and development and the interest shown in the work we have done to change organisational learning.


About her programme Rachel said "I approached Margert at Cake People Development as they are truly unique in what they do. They not only get to know your business, your people and your culture as it is now but understand where you envisage it to be. They bridge the gap of “how can we achieve that” and support you through the implementation of everything and beyond the life of the programmes.


They put together for us an inspiring challenging development programme for our internal trainers, touching all the key areas and incorporating aspects of social learning with support from Andy Lancaster CIPD. Using learning technology has really helped them become part of the learning technology revolution alongside developing their skills as confident trainers and facilitators. Helping them become curators and well as creation of resources.


Their response was incredible, collaborative working, peer coaching, self-directed learning, sharing resources and move towards video based learning, live polling and blended learning."


Don't worry if yo missed the show this year, we will be baqck again next year with CDSM to bring you another great blend.

A training and development firm has expressed ‘a vote of confidence’ in Diss, after opting to remain in the town as it expands into larger facilities. CAKE People Development moved from offices in Denmark Street to a new base at Diss Business Park in Hopper Way on Monday, following a successful period of growth since its launch in October 2016.



The new facilities will enable the company to take on extra staff, while also allowing room for further growth. In a statement, CAKE said new business opportunities and “the loyal support of its customers” meant that it had only taken six months to outgrow its previous office. Margaret Burnside, the director of CAKE People Development, said: “We’ve been searching for the ideal space for a while. “We were committed to staying in Diss when looking to find a new office space and are delighted to tell everyone that we’ve finally found it. “Our new redesigned and remodelled offices, with a range of new flexible training rooms, make our new location a more relaxed and attractive place to learn. “Our decision to stay and continue our growth in Diss is our vote of confidence in the town and the terrific location of the business park.”


CAKE, which took on the people development consultancy division of fellow Diss business Eras Ltd in November, stated it plans to extend the offerings of its open programme service, as well as launch a full suite of one and two-day management and HR workshops for businesses in the region. The firm also expressed optimism for the ongoing investment into regenerating the Diss Heritage Triangle, which it believes will boost the local economy.
