  1. Dear Jo – It was good to meet you at the Training Journal Event last Friday Sept 21st. I thought it was an interesting day, and I gained a greater insight into the life (and challenges) of an L&D professional. I am pleased that the drama scenarios that we created helped to stimulate a fruitful debate. All best. Robbie Swales.
