LearnFest is not a conference, instead it is a fun and non-traditional development EXPERIENCE unfolded in a festive atmosphere.
The objective of LearnFest 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.
LearnFest 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.
What to Expect
Learn from leading experts in the industry and participate in engaging sessions that provide real-world information you can apply immediately in minimizing the challenges and risks in your own environment.
This year’s LearnFest Caribbean examines a broad range of challenges and solutions where organisations can hone and level up on skills and expertise from technical to the strategic levels.
This year’s format will be bolder and bigger than last year and will include keynote addresses, panel session, interactive group discussions and a plenitude of networking opportunities. You’ll participate in knowledge sharing and collaboration while building relationships and enhancing your professional network. You’ll leave this event with practical strategies, insights and guidance on how to propel your career and level-up.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from and collaborate with some of the top thinkers in the world. This event is fast becoming the premier learning and networking event in the Caribbean.
Professional Development Units
Project managers receive professional units (PDUs).
The Learning Approach
LearnFest is based on the concept of bite-sized learning and deep-dive – short, 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 sessions last from 30 minutes to 1 hr (excluding Q & A)and is underpinned by fun coupled with adult experiential learning techniques.
The following are key features of LearnFest Caribbean:
- Career Development Corner – You will leave with the knowledge required to advance your organisations and level-up in your careers. (New for 2018 Mentoring Sessions) Brain Date (new for 2018)
