| || Subject Matter Expert Profile — Victoria Adjetey-Nelson, CTDP — Partnering with Clients|
We will be featuring profiles of the great people behind the From Paper to Practice workshops leading up to the first live session, March 7th. Learn more about who worked on this important project and why they wanted to get involved!
Let's Meet Victoria Adjetey-Nelson, CTDP
What do you do professionally and how does it relate to the From Paper to Practice workshops?
Previously I spent approximately 9 years in the Learning/Talent Development field as a Learning Designer and Senior Learning Consultant supporting enterprise performance needs, recommending and designing learning solutions. Currently I am a Senior Manager, Enterprise Career Programs at CIBC. I lead a team of 20+ MBA/Master's graduates within a 2 year leadership development rotational program. These Paper to Practice workshops relate to me as I support identifying performance needs for young talent coming into our organization and recommend solutions to support their career development at CIBC. I guess you can say the future leaders of CIBC are my clients.
Why did you want to contribute as a subject matter expert for this project?
I have been a member of the I4PL for years and wanted to give back to the association that has enhanced my career development in performance consulting. As well, when I heard they were looking for people to share stories, best practices and lessons learned — I felt my experience supporting various needs for a large organization with different learner needs could provide other professionals a different point of view. I do this regularly with my team/colleagues, so why not share my experience with those outside of my organization.
What do you hope people learn from the session you worked on?
That there isn’t a perfect way or magic potion to partner with clients; however, there are some commonalities to what makes a great partnership. Everyone likes to be heard, to feel like the person they are working with understands their needs, listens to their concerns and shows that they care.
How do you imagine the participants will be able to apply what they learn in their own workplaces?
Participants will be able to apply what they’ve learned via taking some of the tips, best practices, templates and approaches and leveraging them within their own workplace. I also envision that participants will leverage the network/people from the course to stay connected and take the learnings offline and support one another with on-going touchpoints. As well, sharing the learnings with their immediate team, clients and business partners can be great conversation starters to support ideating best practices to support current and future projects.
Who do you expect to be taking From Paper to Practice?
Professionals in various industries that continually look after the performance and learning needs of an organization (large, medium or small).

How we speak and attempt to share information in the world of Change Management is important. The approach and indeed, the terminology itself can create an unconscious divide between us (Change Management people) and the rest of the world. Here is how you can overcome this obstacle.
National webinars are always free for members and $50 +tax for non-members.
These events count towards 1 credit hour each for certification maintenance.
Please note that there are two steps in the registration process. First, you are required to register on IMIS (The I4PL website) and then the second step is to register on the ZOOM platform. The second step will be sent to you 48 hours before the webinar that will then send a confirmation email with the dial-in instructions. For questions, please contact email@example.com.

As an Olympic rower, I didn’t learn to make the boat go faster and become a world-class athlete by going to a lecture theatre and learning about the theory of the rowing stroke. Nor did I go to a poorly carpeted hotel conferencing suite and learn about different ways in which that theory could be applied to different crews and trying to imagine how it might feel. No conference rooms, no learning suites, no online programmes. I went down to the river every day and went rowing and got coached, supported and challenged in that environment every day.
Proving the value of learning and development programs is important, but it’s no easy feat. According to data from LinkedIn’s 2017 Workplace Learning Report, 32 per cent of learning executives believe demonstrating ROI is a top challenge for L&D, and 80 per cent agree that quantifying employee development is top-of-mind for their CEO and leadership team.
Online education has become popular among working professionals and students in higher education. These categories of online learners find immense benefit in the autonomy, and flexibility, that these courses offer. Online courses can be planned into their schedule, which may include full-time employment, internships and caring for family. It can also help them take out quiet time to study.
