We believe that well crafted and delivered CPD is important because it delivers benefits to the individual, their profession and the employer.
Lead5050 members will benefit from a CPD session each month.
Why is CPD important in our industry?
CPD ensures your capabilities keep pace with the current standards of others in the same field.
CPD ensures that you maintain and enhance the knowledge and skills you need to deliver a professional service to your customers, clients and the community.
CPD ensures that you and your knowledge stay relevant and up to date. You are more aware of the changing trends and directions in your profession. The pace of change is probably faster than it’s ever been – and this is a feature of the new normal that we live and work in. If you stand still you will get left behind, as the currency of your knowledge and skills becomes out-dated.
CPD helps you continue to make a meaningful contribution to your team. You become more effective in the workplace. This assists you to advance in your career and move into new positions where you can lead, manage, influence, coach and mentor others.
CPD helps you to stay interested and interesting. Experience is a great teacher, but it does mean that we tend to do what we have done before. Focused CPD opens you up to new possibilities, new knowledge and new skill areas.

Lead5050 session feedback
As someone who is still in the early stages of my career as a manager, I found Catherine’s webinar to be quite comforting form the point of view that what I’m feeling and the challenges I’m facing are completely normal! This session gave me practical ideas on how to build my confidence, communicate more effectively with my team and set expectations.
