Lunch and Learn – the great way to develop

$29

Lunch and learn is an American concept which, as it sounds, offers you professional learning & development, networking whilst having the chance to eat together. A great internal tool to launch ideas or maybe a product or service or share key updates, they are usually voluntary to attend and similar to a Village Hall type event. Run informally, you have a 45 minute slot to present, give updates and get key feedback to selective issues. It can bring out great networking, collaboration and sharing best practice between employers.

Learning is child’s play indeed, but for an adult it’s no longer that simple. The brain finds it harder to absorb and adapt new knowledge, thinking and patterns. It’s one of the reasons we don’t like change. But now more than ever, the business world is moving fast and to keep relevant and current, you need to constantly adapt and learn new skills. Don’t get left behind.

In all our business courses, you get access to around six hours of e-learning that you can watch, listen and read. There are usually 100 questions and at the end of the course you will receive a certificate of completion that you can use against any personal or professional development requirements. As well as the course, you also receive a FREE e-book that you can read on your Kindle or other e-reader. You also get a FREE audiobook of the course so you can listen to the whole course uninterrupted on your device.

Who's it for?

Anyone either in work, returning to work or wanting to return to the world of learning as an adult and wants to make the most of their new pursuits.

Prior knowledge

Management of the business and its people should be part of your knowledge and experience.  As you develop your career, there will be a constant requirement to not only refresh and update existing technical learning but also to develop new skills and ways of thinking and behaving.

Technical Skills

Whether you’re in production, distribution, sales, finance, human resources or management your technical skills will always need to keep up with the latest developments in technology and change. The learning for this will generally come from your peers, industry trends and specialised training.

New skills

However, as you move up in seniority through an organisation or become and entrepreneur, you will be faced with learning a much wider array of skills. You will need to learn how to be a generalist but with the ability to look at the whole of a business and how it all interlocks.

People Skills

Most importantly, you will need to master your own behaviours and character and emotional intelligence in order to influence, inspire and bring people along with your vision.

Your career, personal and professional development should never stop, whether you are learning because of a company or professional body requirement or whether you are just wanting to grow.
