I’m delighted to announce the launch of the Learning & Development Book Club – for L&D and people professionals that want to keep up to date and share their learning with like-minded peers!

The L&D profession is rapidly evolving. Whether its re-skilling your workforce, improving your training through applying neuroscience, or implementing diversity strategies, there’s so much that today’s modern people professionals need to keep on top of.

Our book club gives you the opportunity to learn with others, by reading and joining in our group discussions. You’ll be practicing real social learning, from peers, in a safe environment.

How will it work?

We’ll crowd source the book choices for each month’s read from our private FB group – you buy the book and do the reading, we’ll host a Zoom Book Club session to review each book. We’ll feature giveaways and prizes each month. We’ll also feature our book choices here, so if you don’t want to join the group, but want to see our recommendations, you can!


All you have to do is join our private Facebook Group the Learning & Development Hub
