Hello Learners, we’re all aware of what’s going on in the world with the sadly-famous COVID-19. This means more and more companies and people are forced to stay at home and reduce movements outside. People’s freedom of movement is being limited in all Italy right now (and this might extend to other countries soon… fingers crossed) in an attempt to stop the spread of the virus, causing each one of us to rethink the way we live, work and learn.
We deeply empathize with everyone who’s under pressure because of the virus, and its consequences.: this unprecedented situation is really testing every one of us, and we are extra lucky this time around as we’ve been a remote company for the last four years. So here’s a couple of things we want to do for and share with our community of Learners.

Avanscoperta Retreat #3 – Cross-Company Collaborations
Retreats always comes in threes! 🙂
And that’s with this spirit that we organised our Retreat #3 once again in the city of Bologna. Bologna, again?! Well, we did try to escape to somewhere more exotic this time around (closer to the water for example… ) but eventually the capital of Emilia-Romagna, foodies’ paradise and very well connected with the rest of mainland Italy, remains the city of choice for our annual Retreat.
Not to mention its proximity with Avanscoperta’s HQ in nearby Faenza, where everything began just over 10 years ago.

Avanscoperta Retreat #2 – Open Space
Once you pop, you cannot stop… And so that’s how we ended up organising Avanscoperta’s second Retreat in Bologna in January 2019!
We had so much fun the previous year, and the value for us, Avanscoperta, and for our trainers and partners alike, it has been so big that we simply couldn’t let other year pass without gather to learn new stuff, find out and explore new ideas… you know how it works, right? 🙂

Avanscoperta agreed to sponsor my participation to the workshop held on 5-9 Feb by Nassim N. Taleb on risk modeling in NYC. This is the story of where this decision came up from, since the day Alberto Brandolini and I first met.

A Training for Trainers: Training from the Back of the Room
What happens when you gather (almost) all of your trainers in a room for two days and give them the tools to create from scratch or reshape their workshops and courses thanks to an effective “training for trainers” format (Sharon Bowman’s “Training from the Back of the Room”)?
(Now available as a public workshop: get your tickets for the second edition of Training from the BACK of the Room, with Teri Frith, Bologna, 8-9 June 2020).
