Every month, I host a roundtable that brings together top minds in the learning and development space to network, learn, and support each other as we all keep up with the latest in the Learning and Development space and grow our organizations. Join us virtually or in person (at the UN in Nairobi), and enjoy access to an engaged, excited group of your peers along with access to my portal of resources and 6+ years of meetings!
