Hi all! I am currently Fauna & Flora Internationals (FFIs) Senior Programme Manager for Conservation Capacity and Leadership. I have a lovely broad remit, but at its heart my job is to support FFI staff and partners strengthen skills in establishing, managing and supporting FFIs conservation work. I do this in lots of ways- designing and running training events, supporting the application of new skills/learning to peoples work, setting up mentoring relationships and peer to peer learning groups, organising exchange visits, work shadowing, master classes etc. We have a big focus on knowledge management in FFI, so don't just focus on how to bring in new knowledge and learning into our organisation, but how to share and apply all the incredible knowledge and skills our 400 strong team already have
I have an MSc in Environmental Technology and PhD in Anthropology from UCL where I specialised in human-environment interactions, with a stint as a Teaching Fellow in Human Ecology (maternity cover). Prior to joining FFI, I spent a number of years working in the Central African Republic to assess and improve the integration of conservation and development in the Dzanga-Sangha region, and following gorillas up and down volcanoes in Rwanda with the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International. Before joining FFI's Conservation Capacity team in 2013, I spent 5 years in FFI’s Africa team, co-ordinating and managing projects in Liberia, West Africa.

That's fine, Beth - I hope you can join us, but completely understand everyone has many other commitments! There are five of us signed up already :)
Hi Lucy. I've signed up for the 4 pm session but haven't received a link yet- is there a way to resend?
Thanks so much for uploading this Lucy. It was a fun webinar to record.
I'd be really interested to hear other people thoughts on this topic, e.g. recommendations of software, methods for making people feel at ease online etc.
Hi Beth. Steph O'Donnell at WildLabs has also recently done a great seminar on the remote facilitation techniques that they've used for their online sessions over the past few years- more info here: https://www.wildlabs.net/resources/community-announcements/wildlabs-virtual-workshop-recording-running-engaging-events-zoom
