BEtreat South Africa

    Professional development workshops: networks, communities and social learning

New in 2013:
BEtreat comes to South Africa

  In May 2013, we are holding two BEtreat workshops near Cape Town in South Africa.

BEtreat workshops are a unique experience of engaging, connecting, and learning. In a retreat setting we explore cutting-edge issues facing people whose work involves the support and cultivation of networks, communities of practice or social learning systems.

For four days we roll up our sleeves and take a deep dive into the challenges and opportunities in this growing field. Moving between latest research and shared experiences we create a dynamic context for engaging in practical challenges and new developments.

The workshops are small and focused. Participation can be face-to-face or online.

We are excited that this is the first time we are running the workshops outside California. Read what some people said about previous workshops here.
