and no-one hears it, does it make a sound?
In a similar vein, if good work is happening in the learning and development space but people don’t nominate themselves for an award, does it mean the work is of value?
It was interesting to hear from so many people at the Charity Learning Consortium annual conference last week how people there are doing good things with little resource. Necessity is the mother of invention and it was heartening to hear how charities are trying to find ways to support their organisations in ways which are innovative and effective. Yet the charity sector is under recognised in this space.
The charity sector isn’t not for profit.
The charity sector isn’t the public sector.
The charity sector isn’t social enterprise.
The charity sector is creative, engaged, purposeful, driven, and resourceful. If you work in the private sector, maybe go and speak with learning and development people in that space and find out just how much noise they’re making which no-one is hearing.
