A retrospective on what one has learned is a defined, finite, and perhaps censored perspective. A reflection on what one is learning is a broad, ongoing, and candid documentary.
This is fundamentally the purpose of The Avid Doer: sharing first-hand, real-life success stories, advice and insight from avid doers who are proactive with their continuous professional development and career management.
I, and fellow avid doers, share articles and insight to inspire you to strive to get what you want out of your career by managing your continuous professional development.

The site also provides readers with a behind-the-scenes peek into the process of me writing my latest book on career development.

ABOUT THE EDITOR: CHARLES GOFF-DEAKINS Assoc CIPD
I’m an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), HR policy specialist, and senior HR professional, advising managers how to look after their teams. I’m also an HR writer, career development blogger and editor, author of the book ‘HR Beyond the Theory‘, HR mentor, international speaker*, hungry learner and documentarian. Oh, and an avid doer, of course.
I live in the Peak District, UK, with my husband. He’s an avid doer too, and an awesome writer.
*I was a speaker once at an international conference, so I’m milking it for all it’s worth
