Play • 34 min
In this special Season overview episode, I shoot the Learning 4 Good breeze - on his birthday! -with my fellow Season collaborator Lutz Ziob. Microsoft’s GM for all things Learning for 11 years, Lutz, who also held senior training and L&D roles at places like CompTIA, WordPerfect and Novell, holds degrees from prestigious British and German Universities, and is a recognised authority on Workplace Learning. Lutz is now the CEO of Ziob Consulting, which focuses on the dynamic interaction between technology innovation, skills and job transformation, and the changing approaches to learning and skills development, especially in the context of Africa, building on his years as Dean of Microsoft’s ‘4Afrika Academy.’ In our discussion we outline why we decided now was a good time to hear from Learning experts in the non-profit sector, as well as details about Putz’s personal mission and career journey, from researcher to software sales to education, as well as: why the workforce of the future will have an African face; the growth in informal employment and why you can genuinely talk about ‘Hustler MBA’ programs; the importance of building local capacity in the humanitarian aid sector; teasers for some of our confirmed guests, including Well Told Stories, DevEx, Red Cross/Red Crescent and The Harambe Youth Employment Accelerator; why 6 out of 10 of the fastest-growing global economies are in Sub-Saharan Africa; really innovative non-school based tech workforce preparation strategies; and much more.
