Divergent Thoughts

How to take what you know and share it…

About Me

While originally having planned a career in Mathematics, I was soon swayed by miniscule microbes and viruses, and rightly so, they being such interesting organisms. Since then my path has branched out beyond my expectations. Not wanting to be a lab rat, I have chosen the road less travelled.

Through my varied professional experience, from research to research communications and writing, to knowledge management and sharing, the one constant thread has been my passion for helping people. It’s curious how we tend to attract what we need when we’re passionate about something. My accidental foray into the field of  facilitation and organizational development, my conversations and interactions with leaders and experts…these have all helped me understand better, the most interesting organism of all, the human being. 

This has proved useful when helping people visualise and articulate their ideas/problems, bridge barriers between R&D and the person-on-the-street, facilitate information and knowledge transfer. This blog will feature posts on facilitation processes, communication practices and knowledge sharing ideas that work. I will also explore the people component in creating conducive environments for learning, imparting and sharing know-how.

    Guess we won’t be hearing the fun bits now like how you were locked out of your apartment, or serenaded to by strangers….
    But looks to be interesting, good luck x
