Kirsty James, Human Resources Business Partner, Glen Eira City Council

I decided to become a Convenor because having attended the Learning & Development SIG meetings over the past few years, I have always found them to be extremely beneficial. I've enjoyed the knowledge sharing, the networking, the ideas, the contacts and the inspiration that comes from being part of a SIG. We are in a unique industry where we can exchange knowledge and information with our counterparts from other Councils and I have found inspiration from what other Councils are doing in HR and L&D. My hopes for the SIG is to have it running as successfully as the L&D SIG and that it becomes an inspirational group that HR staff from all Councils look to share knowledge, ideas, information and motivation.
