Our Executive Development team hosted the second installment of the Learning and Development Community of Practice Workshops for 2023

At Stellenbosch Business School Executive Development (SBS-ED), our commitment to nurturing continuous learning and development within organisations is paramount. We believe a robust learning culture stands as the bedrock of sustained growth and innovation. In pursuit of this mission, we recently hosted the second installment of our Learning and Development Community of Practice Workshops for 2023, titled “Business Culture and Other Short Stories”.  Our goal is clear – to equip individuals and organisations with the essential skills not only to succeed but to thrive in our ever-evolving business landscape.

Event highlights

Under the theme "Embedding Learning into the Flow of Work and Culture," our second event was held in Cape Town, South Africa. A diverse group of L&D professionals from varied sectors joined us in a crucial discourse on how to cultivate a thriving learning culture within their respective organisations. Guided by the expertise of Willem Fourie, an accomplished author, associate professor, and founder of the South African SDG Hub, this workshop provided an invaluable platform for L&D executives and managers to engage in insightful discussions and exchange ideas.

Cultivating a thriving learning culture

Central to the workshop's narrative was the art of seamlessly infusing learning into an organisation's cultural DNA. Attendees explored approaches and strategies to integrate learning into daily operations, fostering a proactive approach to growth.


In today’s economic landscape, the ability to swiftly adapt to change and innovation is imperative. By underscoring the fusion of learning into the current of work and culture, organisations empower their teams to embrace agility, growth, creativity, and an enhanced capacity to confront challenges head-on.

Join us for the next workshop

We invite all SBS-ED alumni in the fields of L&D and Human Resources to join us at the next event, where we will discuss strategies that amplify the impact of your learning initiatives. The workshop is titled, "Return on Learning Debunked", and takes place on 18 October in Cape Town. To secure your spot, please register at

Join us in crafting a future of growth and innovation. We have the power to reshape industries, careers, and lives, together.
