'Light bulb' moment
Brenda's personal ‘light bulb’ moment came in September 2013 at a London Centenary CIPD conference in realising how equipping your workforce with the right knowledge and skills is at the heart of organizational competitiveness and profitability, and that successful organizations never stop learning.
Having also grown up playing and watching tennis and now an accomplished salsa dancer, Brenda had always been fascinated by how the greatest sportsmen and dancers consistently produce exceptional performances, which comes from being highly competitive.
She passionately believes it is this champion mentality that improves individual and team performance, and subsequently organizational productivity and profitability.
Brenda is passionate about linking performance with learning and OD solutions and getting return on investment (ROI) from learning and development interventions.
Until recently Brenda was Head of Education & Training at a large organization in the UK, specialising in strategy, service transformation, change and stakeholder management, mandatory training compliance, and professional development for over 3500 staff.
In addition to working with public sector organizations, she has also worked with leading private sector companies, drawing upon her senior management experience and operational efficiency to enable meaningful culture change. She therefore brings considerable training and development, and OD experience to IPP Learning.
MBTI and leadership
Brenda is also a qualified MBTI practitioner (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator), a powerful psychometric tool for leadership and team development to drive organizational effectiveness and meet business objectives.
In her spare time she volunteers for and sits on the Development Group of the London Healthcare People Management Academy (London HPMA), which develops the capabilities and competencies of senior HR professionals and Directors across London's healthcare sector.
