Thanks for the warm welcome, I joined because networking of like minded people is a great idea, and it allows them to quicky share information.
Im relatively new in the field of HRD approximately 2 years now, and work as a Training Officer, covering mainly Production personnel, Total Quality Management, QMS, OSHAS and EMS.
Im a Chemical Technology (Hons) gradute.
This platform will afford me the opportunity to share information with seasoned proffessionals, and develop myself.
Zimbabwe has suffered due to brain drain of skilled personnel and its up to HRD practioners to make sure the gap is bridged so that Zim will quickly regain its capacity utilisation and economy.
Thank you very much. I will need to sit and figure it out. This is a wonderful idea. It will be good to get the various inputs regarding the implementation progress of the QCTO at different levels through the course of this year. Im looking forward to add value.
thank you for the welcome, i still have to check it out but have been to busy, as you can see im in Zambia for over a year already. We have set up a skills development company here, i am an NLP master practitioner. We are currently developing a echo village and want to promote the local area and develop its potential. so yes i will be speaking a lot
Thanks for the welcome Sylvia. I'll have a look see about the rest of the stuff on my profile but right now up to my eyeballs and drowning in paperwork. All I want to say is that I think this is a fantastic idea. Well done to you and to Allan!
Thanks for welcoming me into your family. I joined because I belive in networking that connects like-minded people and is constructive. I am positive that this is one such network and i shall add my penny's worth in relevant discussions.
Personally, I am a consultant in the broader HRD sprectum. Skills development in all its formats is one of my specialities. I have been in this field since 2002 in different portfolios.
I am currently assisting a provider to set up their QMS for accreditation and also have a client who wants me to train Project Management to his management team.
i am also registered as a Assessor and a Moderator with the Isett Seta for the End User Computing qualification.
One of the things that I hope to achieve through this forum is information sharing that helps us to grow and understand better the world that we are engaging.
Well I think I have said a mouthful for now and I need to run.
I am looking forward to engaging with other members.
Regards and thank you for this wonderful opportunity.
I intend to be as involved as my vibrance allows me. I am going to use this platform to grow as an individual and to advance. I know is stall have a lot ot learn to learn about whats happening around me and believe me when I say that I AM HERE TO STAY!!
Thanks for the comments. I have often thought about getting something like this started - but you know what it's like - we all sti waiting for someone else to do it. I'll be glad to help you get this going and keep the interest. There is just so much to learn from others. We started a semi-formal mentoring programme at the Open Learning Group where we are spending time with our line managers guiding them on issues both of a work nature and personal. I'm thinking about possibly starting a mentoring group for those that feel they need metoring or those that wish to participate. Do you have comments on this?
Thanks for the welcome. Like Natalie, I am fairly new to this kind of networking but I think it's THE WAY TO GO. I do find that women tend to be more receptiove to business networking. There is so much potential out there that joining forces and sharing knowledge benefits everyone.
We at options in training specialise in making our delegates feel warmly welcomed so that learning computers and business communication is fun - who says work has to be boring or dull?
I look forward to meeting lots of interesting people with Skills Universe.
