Socrates once said, ‘Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel’. Whether you’re the most qualified employee, Director, Founder or entrepreneur in the world, there’s always room to learn and improve.
At Spacecubed, it’s one of our missions to provide continued learning opportunities for our members, and as such, we’re noticing an increasing demand in attendance for events aiding professional development.
We’re also seeing an increasing demand for many members of our community to host and run workshops at either FLUX or Spacecubed.
Continuous development is key
Professional development comes in many forms, and our diverse events at Spacecubed benefit a community comprised of professionals from all sectors and industries.
“To gain practical experience, while supplementing it with expert knowledge passed on and shared, workshopped and hacked, is key to success in the everyday hustle and bustle of the professional working world,” said Kali Norman, Spacecubed’s Manager, Memberships and Growth.
Not only is it important that we encourage professional development for our members, but it’s essential that this remains a constant from week to week (see our events calendar here).
