Learning & Development…

I couldn’t agree more with Toffler when he said – “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.” It is imperative that we develop a passion for learning and if we do – we will never stop growing

Learning

When it comes to my professional journey, over the years I have spent numerous hours learning. With Digital Sector undergoing massive technology transformation at a neck breaking speed, it is imperative that we keep our learning curve aligned – I am no different. During the initial first phase of my career the focus was on establing my credentials and hence technical competency was the key. This was the phase where technical certifications were not only the focus, also a way to show off my capabilities – after all it was about technical competency. As result, I did loads of certifications (some listed below). However, last few years has been more about business development, process and selling, resulting in my focus towards learnign by extensive reading, attending conferences, seminars, webinars, online courses (Udemy, Coursera, edX etc) – however limited focus on getting certifications, to show off my newly acquired skills. Also, courses on key forums like Udemy, Coursera, edX etc. Few of my certifications are listed below…
