Bold L&D

On Tuesday 26th November, the L&D Connect community is getting back together for its next event, called Bold L&D. I’m massively looking forward to this day. It’s a chance to connect with like minded people, have purposeful discussion and move things positively forward.

I wanted to share what we’re planning on doing, cos why wouldn’t I?

The day will consist of several things we’re going to be asking people to get involved with.

We like the idea of visual minutes, so we’re going to experiment with this as active participants as opposed to letting other people do it for us. This is exciting and scary all at the same time. I’m no artist, and my stick people are passable. Bring. It. On.

We’re going to video people talking and post straight up onto a YouTube channel. That’s right, we’re going to give people a platform to talk about their own thing. You don’t need to prepare anything in advance, and you can talk for as little or as long as you like. And yes, we’re expecting everyone to talk…

So far so social, different, and challenging.

We’re going to get people to participate in a live, social, interactive fishbowl dialogue. Enough said.

There’s time to have some jolly good open space discussions. This will be excellent and really fuel some thinking about our practice.

And we’re going to include some action planning. This sounds cliche, and what’s important to remember is that we know that unless people create clear plans of what they’re going to do, things are left very ethereal.

All of the above looks like an agenda and an order of events. It’s not intended to look that way. I just want to share what we’re planning. It’s a very flexible, and adaptable set of activities that will be determined by the group.

The last thing to probably mention is the ticket itself. You buy one ticket and get to invite two other people for no charge.

We’ve been posting things on our LinkedIn page, so keep an eye over there. The hashtag for the day will be #ldcu (L&D Connect Unconference).

Now, book your ticket.
