The KR Learning and Development Community is an initiative started by KR in 2018. It is a membership-based community for all L&D practitioners in Southern Africa. 


Our goal is to provide you with resources and products to help you be more effective in your role, grow your career, solve your skills development challenges in your organisation and stay relevant with latest trends and developments in learning and development.  


As a L&D community member you will  enjoy access to unrivaled market knowledge along with practical support for your continuous professional development. What's more, you become integrated into a huge network of like-minded professionals.


Our network welcomes all L&D practitioners, the goal is to influence and improve L&D in business, government and workplace education communities.

The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is not training them and having them stay.

In establishing KR Learning & Development Community we would like to bring together (connect) the L&D fraternity. We want to create a place where you can learn, connect and share.  

The KR Learning & Development Community aims to provide members with the opportunity to engage in the sharing of ideas, perspectives and experiences.  Learning happens through deep discussions, reflection and collaboration. 



By enhancing the professional development of learning & development practitioners we contribute to unlocking the potential of individuals in organisations and developing skills in the country.
