About The Event


While a crisis disrupts, it also offers unique opportunities for change. These are difficult times for everyone, but a company’s investment in its workforce could determine how quickly it recovers after COVID-19. Paying attention to employees during this pandemic is what can prevent a company from ending up worse off in the long run.


In this session we will hear from learning and development leaders who will share:

  • How their function is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

  • How and what they are doing to help their people adapt to the “new normal”, keep relevant, and prepare for the uncertainty ahead. 

  • What have we learnt?  

  • Sharing some of their challenges, successes and lessons learnt. What will we do differently?

  • What have we started doing and what have we stopped?

  • How the learning function has helped the organisation during this time?

  • How have training needs changed? 

  • And more!



  • Germinah Nyikana, Group Learning and Development, HomeChoice SA

  • Dvorah Stein, Consultant and Learning Leader

  • Yolanda Jordaan, Head of Learning, Nedbank

  • Nompilo (Lolly) Gwabavu, Learning Manager, Hollard


Facilitated by Linda van der Loo, Learning Innovator (past Head of L&D @ Standard Bank Group)
