Blogging for golden nuggets of wisdom

I’m so delighted to be part of the team asked to cover the CIPD L&D show this year, delighted and a bit daunted. I’ve been tweeting and blogging for a while but never in an ‘official’ capacity, I think I get a press pass which is very exciting! As I type this I’m charging up devices and batteries and pondering what else will help me make a good job of this… 

Having an open mind and a ready ear will go a long way I think as will just trying to soak up and reflect the atmosphere. I’m going to try to curate some of the many and varied golden nuggets of wisdom about L&D that I know from looking at the programme will emerge and ground that in my own experiences of L&D.

Social media has made events like this so much more than they used to be, tweeting, conference back channels and live blogging help to open the doors of Olympia (or wherever) to everyone who can’t attend and invite a wider dialogue about the issues being discussed in the seminar rooms, lecture theatres and coffee queues. So join me, and my fellow bloggers by following the hashtag #cipdldshow and we’ll do our best to bring your voices in, ask your questions and share what we’re hearing. It’s going to be fun.
