LearnFest Caribbean™ (LFC) is not a conference, instead it is a fun and non-traditional development EXPERIENCE unfolded in a festive atmosphere.
The objective of LFC is to provide project managers and other professionals with the knowledge and inspiration required to take action to develop themselves and their organisations in bold new ways. To achieve our objectives, each year we bring together thought leaders to explore topical and trending issues affecting organisational strategy, leadership and management. The event is held in Jamaica, other Caribbean Islands and is slated to be held in other regions where there is a Caribbean interest or a Beach (seriously).
Building a Community
LearnFest Caribbean started as an idea, “to transform learning from the predictable, mundane and forgettable, to being exciting, fascinating and lasting” (Sherrone Lobban, Founder, LearnFest Caribbean). In 2016, we asked the question: What’s the value of one truly transformative and great idea, …that turns your mission into a movement? We are proud to say that LearnFest Caribbean has turned into that movement. A movement that brings together Caribbean folks at home and abroad along with global leaders for investment opportunities and reciprocal learning and sharing.
LearnFest Caribbean is organised by DPM International and PMGI.

Professional Development Units
Project managers receive professional units (PDUs) and training hours or CPDs can also be applied to any other professional groups such as business analysis, change management, agile, HR, engineer etc. Its a great event for business owners too.
The Learning Approach
LearnFest is based on the concept of bite-sized learning, along with and deep-dive training.
High-intensity exercise gets a person fitter quicker than endurance training (right?); eating little and often keeps a person slimmer (definitely); and, likewise, bite-size training is cheaper and gets to the learning outcome faster. Our conference sessions last from 30 minutes to 1 hr (excluding Q & A) and is underpinned by fun coupled with adult experiential learning techniques.
Deep dive learning is achieved via our pre and post conference workshops.
