The 10L Interview
Each week, a guest contributor to shares their views and experience in a short email Q&A. It’s a swift snapshot of insights and views on the current state of the profession: what contributors find most useful, how they see their work and even mistakes they have made. And, of course, the impact of COVID.
10L interviews are posted as blogs (roughly) weekly. Previous contributors are listed below.
David James – 5/2/21 – Motor maintenance, learning form digital marketing, sticking to organisation priorities and Steve Jobs.
Toby Harris – 11/2/21 – Learning to drive, the (overlooked) value of email, Rene Descartes and learning a language silently.
Joan Keevill – 18/2/21 – Earning a Masters Degree, being more generous to others, Matthew Syed and the tricky art of delegation.
Guy Wallace – 25/2/21 – Being agile in the 80s, the value of TQM and why you should always have a Performance Model Chart with you.
John Helmer – 04/3/21 – Marketing might not always be the answer, from punk rock guitar to Quincy Jones and L&D’s obsession with making up names.
Sukh Pabial – 11/3/21 – The value of strategic thinking, Brene Brown and warning against false experts in the L&D world.
