I had the incredible opportunity to be part of Ian's Learning Club this year, and it was a game-changer for me. What stood out to me the most was the consistent support and engagement we received. Every two weeks, we gathered online, setting goals and intentions for the upcoming session. This structure fostered a sense of accountability that truly propelled me forward. I wholeheartedly credit Ian's program for my current success. Without it, I wouldn't be where I am today, confidently pursuing my speaking career. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to achieve their goals with the support of a dedicated and knowledgeable community.

The Learning Club Experience
As the pace of change accelerates and the business landscape evolves, it’s essential for companies to prioritise the professional development of their employees.
Investing in employee learning and development not only improves individual job performance but also positively impacts the overall success of the organisation.
This is why I strongly propose implementing "Learning Clubs" - the ultimate professional development accelerator program for your company.
Learning Clubs are small, interactive groups of employees with diverse learning goals, guided by an experienced facilitator. The program is designed to encourage self-directed learning and create a supportive environment that fosters innovation and growth.
Why Run a Learning Club?
Some of the benefits of implementing Learning Clubs in your organisation:
1. Customised Learning Experience: Learning Clubs are tailored to the specific learning needs and interests of each member. This personalised approach to learning allows employees to focus on developing skills that are highly relevant to their job roles and career goals, resulting in a more engaged and motivated workforce.
2. Accelerated Learning: Because members are focussing on their own needs, they can progress at a faster rate than being limited to a prescribed procedure. Employees also learn from each other's experiences and insights, as well as from the facilitator’s guidance. This accelerates the learning process and helps employees gain new skills and knowledge in a shorter period of time.
3. Real Motivation: When each member is in control of setting their own development challenges, when they are fully supported by colleagues and when they see themselves making measurable progress, the motivation within the group is far beyond the usual motivation in a traditional training setting. Employees put in more effort and so get better results.
4. Enhanced Collaboration: Learning Clubs provide a platform for employees to collaborate and share ideas with colleagues from different departments and backgrounds. This encourages cross-functional bonding and helps employees gain a broader perspective on the organisation as a whole.
5. Improved Retention: Investing in employee development through Learning Clubs shows that the company values its employees' growth and development. This can lead to improved employee retention rates, as employees are more likely to stay with an organisation that invests in their professional development.

A Powerful Combination of Methodologies
Learning Clubs have had unprecedented success in helping people grow and develop in their personal and professional lives. Each club consists of a small group of members who meet regularly to learn, support and challenge each other.
My approach is based on a combination of methodologies from action learning, self-directed learning, social learning and group coaching to optimise the learning process of each member.
This combination ensures that the ownership, focus, motivation, continuity, accountability and feedback are all of maximum quality for an exceptional learning experience.
