We’ve often talked on this show about how few people actively seek out a career in learning and development. So, how exactly did we end up here?

This week on the podcast, Ross Dickie, Ross Garner and James McLuckie are joined by Richard Dawson of Virgin Trains and Jilly Julian of Horwich Farrelly to share their origin stories.

In this episode we discuss

  • Our professional backgrounds
  • The challenges of getting started in L&D
  • The qualities that make someone suited to a role in L&D
