• Hi Gary,

    Thank you for the link. I have already registered. I was worried how on earth I will find time to do my CPD as my busy HR day has not enough hours, but reading one of your article with your CPD examples reassured me that I do lots of activities every day that I can include on my CPD. It was really, really helpful.

    I am looking forward to the webinar to find out what other busy people are up to.

    I must admit that I was in touch with DPG back in 2012 doing my level 3. It was different. We used to have a 1 day workshop in London once a month. I am glad that we can do it all online now. The platform seems to be overwhelming at first, but more you read, more you understand. 

    Thank you once again for your helpful comments.


    • Hi Joanna Kardzis 

      It's great to see that you have registered. I'm taking part in the webinar and I'm intrigued to know what insights the rest of the panel will bring.

      I'm so glad that my blog is helping. I've only had a couple of comments like yours so I wasn't sure if people we find it useful - you have re-motivated me!

      Yeah, we were still using workshops right up until the first lockdown for Level 3. Everything I am here is that we will be putting workshops back in place once it is safe to do so. I'm not sure about Level 5 though - that might remain 100% online. Level 5 has had an online option for over 4 years now and it has been our most popular programme so I expect we'll keep that as it is.

      Yeah, I'm conscious that there is a lot of information on here. I've tried to streamline the home page as much as possible to focus on forums and blogs (and make it mobile friendly). I think we should probably remove some groups though to further streamline things. What do you think? What gave you that initial feeling of being overwhelmed? I'd love to know and try and do something about it.
