What a great article. I must admit that when I left University I really believed that I had all the relevant skills and knowledge to succeed in my career. Nearly 22 years on and my focus on personal development has never been so focused, not because I feel it is needed, but because learning energises, inspires and helps me to innovate in the environment around me. It keeps me relevant.

Until I enrolled on a LEAD programme (a non-academic, cohort led mini MBA) around 7 years ago, I did no proactive learning at all. Since then my week is filled with networking, reading, podcasts, social media scanning all with the objective of learning.

How do you ensure you stay relevant?
