Events Alert: UQ Business School’s remaining Exec-Development short courses for 2018

UQ Business School - Executive Short Courses - 2018

Participants in a UQ Business School workshop are provided with the highest possible capability development opportunities

Given that my role as an Industry Engagement Manager at UQ Business School includes keeping organisations up-to-date with our various public programs, I thought I’d do a quick post to let you know what’s coming up in the calendar for the rest of this year.

As you’d expect from UQ, these workshops really are about as good as it gets being developed by one of the world’s top-tier universities and delivered by facilitators with both academic excellence AND in-depth industry experience. They also offer an amazing opportunity for participants to network and share knowledge and experience.

Most of these workshops are designed for people working from Middle-Management to Executive level positions (although, some are targeted at just Executives and Senior Executives – see the program titles and full course info for details).

Book three places or more for a 10% reduction.

NB. These topics (and many others) can all be delivered ‘in-house’, fully contextualised to your specific needs.

Have you been to the World’s biggest L&D conference yet?

ATD - The World's Biggest Learning & Development Conference - L&D Generous

A quick confession…

Ok, before I get going on this article, I must fess-up and admit that I didn’t know anything about the ATD conference until David King at the awesome knowledge-sharing platform provider ‘Tribal Habits‘ told me about it, so this article is basically thanks to him…thanks David! 🙂

The Learning & Development Mecca

Ok, pretty much every group has their own ‘Mecca’. In soccer, it’s the (currently underway) World Cup, for hippies, it’s Burning Man, for kids, it’s Disney Land…and, for Learning & Development people, it would seem to be the annual ATD conference in the USA.

Arguably the premier awards of their type in Australia, the 2014 Australian HR Awards Ceremony kicks off on Friday the 5th of September at Doltone House, Darling Island in Sydney and, as always, will include an award for ‘Best Learning and Development Strategy’.

It’s also a great opportunity to network with others in the HR/OD/L&D community and, of course, have a drink or two with them!

For more information, see below or click here to go to the official website.

Cheers, Sam

Event Alert – HR Summit(s) 2012 dates & details

I went to a couple of the HR Summits last year and have to say that, on the whole, they were well worth attending. This year’s events look good too, not in the least because it’s the their 10th anniversary so they’re putting some extra effort into it.

Unfortunately the Sydney event has already been held (at Luna Park, which must have been a great venue), but Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth are yet to happen.

Of course, being an all-round HR event, it’s not all relevent to those of us in the L&D/OD world, however, it’s got plenty that is and so is well worth checking out…I just need to hit the boss up for the money for the ticket now!!! Continue reading

Event(s) Alert – Delivering Change Management: A Panel Discussion 13th and 20th Oct

Another event alert for you but I’m glad to say that this one’s for free!!! Cliftons (the organisation that provides training and event venues…very good ones too!) are hosting a couple of forums on Change Management. Aside from being free of charge to attend and having several good speakers lined up (as well as the panel discussion), these things are also great from a networking point of view.

The first one is in Melbourne from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on the 13th of Oct and the second is one is in Sydney, 5.30pm to 7.30pm on the 20th of Oct (both at Cliftons of course).

Event Alert – Australian HR Awards – 28th Oct 2011

I know, I know, I generally don’t do posts on generic HR stuff but the HR awards are pretty big and they’re run by HC Mag, where I get a fair bit of info for this site, so it seems only fair to do a bit of a plug for their main event.

This year’s HR awards are on Friday 28th of October at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney. The blurb from the website says… Continue reading
