I attended the Australian Institute of Training and Development Conference in Sydney on Wednesday 13 May and Thursday 14 May and decided to vlog some of my thoughts…
I was invited by Michelle Ockers and AITD to participate to present the Work, Connect and Learn case study for CCA. You can read all the blog posts from this project here. (My apologies to people who tried to access the mobile version of my website at the conference and were bombarded with popups asking for emails. I have since removed these. This is what happens when you start to play and experiment with different WordPress plugins and you forget which ones you have activated).

Reflections of Day 1:
Reflections of Day 2:
Key Takeaway Things For Me:
- Give things a go. Be willing to experiment. Always be learning.
- Change is here and it’s here to stay.
- No you don’t need to have the latest whiz bang technology (says me with the iPhone4) or sport an Apple Watch on your wrist, but it’s your mindset to that change and an acceptance that from here on, it’s up to you how you handle it.
- People are amazing. Ask them what they do outside of work and see how their eyes light up when they talk about what inspires them. Some lead wonderful lives that help and support others in their community. Why can’t organisations see these incredible attributes, creativity and spark in their people and then harness their spirit and passion in their own work? I simply don’t get it. There’s a “talent shortage!!!” they exclaim – what about redistributing the current talent to projects and work where their unique skills and talents are needed?
Big thanks to Con Sotidis (@LearnKotch) for creating an Eventifier of the event. Make sure you check out the great photos and drawings of the event. And no, I have no idea about how injecting chickens got into the video section but I guess that is a mystery of the cyber universe. Ignore that video.
