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; a learner’s documentary and insight into the world of work and career management , but in useful and quick-to-read snippets.
Learning this way, for me, and you as the reader, means that knowledge is absorbed, shared, and transferred in short bursts, thus being able to avoid the long-winded “How to” guidance pieces or deep dives into a single topic to the point of tedium (although my older stuff kinda did that pre-September ’18).
From business psychology to people development; from career management to leadership; and from employee engagement to workplace wellbeing; this is where I shove all my thoughts and discoveries into one spot, refining them into concise and useful titbits of insight for readers (with any luck).

“Become a documentarian of what you do” – Austin Kleon.
I’m an associate member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and senior HR professional. I’m also an HR writer, careers blogger, 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
