This year I have been involved in a variety of projects for the CIPD. In a voluntary capacity, I am the Vice Chair for the local Central London Branch. I have been volunteering in the role for a year and a half now, it is great to be able to give back to my professional network and colleagues.

From a client perspective, CIPD has engaged me to redesign one of their management development programme offerings. I enjoyed working as part of a small team of facilitators to review current content and redesign elements for a new ‘people development’ programme. Towards the end of 2017, I will be facilitating the workshops as part of the pilot rollout.

I have also been asked to be the Guest Speaker on one of the L&D Level 5 qualifications offered by AVADO for CIPD. I will be speaking and be engaging with students on their Social and Collaborative Learning module.
