About Us

The vision for LDN was born in May 2011 when 9 (nine) Nigerian professionals who attended the American Society of Training & Development (ASTD) conference at Orlando, Florida and met at the conference.

They talked about the seamless way with which the conference was organized and discussed on how to bring the same passion from that conference to Nigeria and start something similar.

Dr Alo (Founding President of LDNI), who was also at that conference, immediately volunteered to sponsor the venue and breakfast at the first roundtable meeting of the proposed network in Nigeria. Collins Edebiri (Founding VP), who was also at the conference & has been the livewire of this network, got back to Nigeria and immediately rallied and coordinated the first in August 2011 and subsequent meetings ever since.


We all have the freedom to express ourselves but the effect of words and actions can be irreparable most times.

Why do we need to process our actions and expressions?After all,this is how people can understand our perspectives and persona.

This session will:
-Highlight the difference between Tact and Diplomacy.
-define When to apply Diplomacy and when to be tactful.
-teach how to structure emails and messaging via Watsapp and SMS
-highlight errors made while commenting on Social Media and LinkedIn
-define Politeness and Manners in expressions and actions.
-Emphasize the importance of processing before expressing.

The Value of Tact and Diplomacy cannot be overlooked especially in these times. People have become very aware of words and actions. Words and Actions can construct or destruct.

Why discuss grief?  Aren’t there better topics? What’s in it for me? It’s not worth my precious time!
Hold it right there!
Remember, life is full of sound and fury. Grief is part of life. We all lose someone or something at some point in our lives. Should you lose your feathers when you lose your father? Should our mantra vanish with the loss of our mother?

3. How do I handle grief triggers?
4. How do I cope with the loss of a family member or colleague?
5. How can I help grievers without harming?
6.  What roles can organizations play?
