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.
Recent technological advancement and Covid19-induced evolving work patterns have created opportunities to explore more data for business. Thus, it is not a coincidence that organizations are increasingly looking to apply all forms of data to solve business problems.
To this end, there is a need for HR /L & D professionals to upscale their talent development strategies by moving from the traditional to a more evidenced based method for evaluating learning impact.
Kindly join us and Peter Shialsuk on Wednesday June 1st @ 11am as he explores how we can apply ‘People Analytics’ techniques as an evidence-based approach to gain insights on learning impact and to help Management improve in making more informed decisions regarding talents.
