Welcome to Your Site
Yes, YOUR site. Read here why.
Work as we know it, is changing. How, when and where we work have already seen many changes - largely because of the many options that new technology is giving us. In the new world of work, what we do will most likely change a few times during the course of our working careers.
If you have not given this much thought yet, the time is now. The 4th Industrial Revolution is upon us and the "Future of Work" is the new buzz phrase on everyone's lips. In South Africa, retrenchments and corporate restructuring add many skilled people to the ranks of the unemployed; while many graduates battle to find jobs in their chosen fields.
What does this mean for you? Well, wherever you find yourself in/outside the world of work, continuous learning, re-skilling and accessibility to resources will be important for everyone - and it will most likely become your personal responsibility, rather than being able to depend on an employer for training and teaching you the ropes.
So - we need to start exploring and sift out the useful from the 'noise' of the online offerings. The resources and tools on this site are being put together to guide and assist with this as much as possible, particularly relating to the South African context. Selected content that's interesting or useful are also posted on our social media pages. Also keep an eye on this space for news about our online training options!
You are most welcome on this journey with me - we truly live in exciting times.
