Learning and Development Roundtable

April 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0

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!

Workshop Title: Did it, Done, Do it again

This month’s workshop is all about Learning Culture.
Really, do it again? The same way? Yes and No. Join the next Roundtable to learn how you can take what you did and how you did it and turn into learning for you, your teammates, your Organization. You’ll never just do it again, you’ll do it better. And you’ll learn about how to build a learning culture to boot.
Kate McBride’s (this month’s speaker / bio below) learning culture includes:
      • Have fun
      • Solve problems, don’t admire them
      • Celebrate crossing the finish line
      • Capture the good, not so good at the finish line celebration
      • Prep for the next project, starting with the celebration notes (lessons identified)

Speaker Bio:

Ms. Kate McBride was appointed to the position of Chief, Information and Communication Technology Service (ICTS), in UNON. The position also includes serving as Chief for the Regional Technology Centre – Africa.

In Peacekeeping, Kate implemented a peacekeeping wide approach to delivering information services to field and HQ entities including the establishment of information management capacity in the UN 24×7 Situation Centre and embedded GIS services in field operations. In OCHA, Kate led the development and transformation of OCHA’s global ICT network enabling OCHA to respond and operate with cloud based information services and scalable, light technologies.
