L&D professional development events update April 2019

March was quite a busy month for L&D PD and while April isn’t as jam-packed due to the Easter and Anzac Day public holidays, there are still some great PD opportunities available.

Melbourne appears to be the PD hotspot for April, with the Kaospilot team back helping us design and facilitate learning that will inspire and promote creativity, engagement, innovation and risk-taking and the Fishbowl Experience chewing over “Culture: getting the core ingredients right.”

Accreditation courses are running online for anyone interested in becoming a PR6 Certified Resilience Coach or an an Extended DISC Practitioner and Facilitator Training in the LEGO® Serious Play® methodology is running in both Melbourne and Sydney.

As usual we have some great free meetups and online discussions happening, so check out the calendar for more info.
