A little about our guests:
Gbonju Akintola, L&OD Consultant, House of Commons
Gbonju is a Learning & Organisation Development (L&OD) consultant with the House of Commons. She began her journey into this space around 2004 as a training officer with the Citizens Advice Bureau. Her quest for understanding how to make learning stick took her into the fields of coaching (performance and leadership coaching) and OD. She has an MSc in People & OD from Roffey Park Institute. Gbonju has experience in the private, voluntary, and public sectors, working with individuals and teams to navigate complexity and challenge unproductive values and beliefs. If Gbonju were a business, her strapline would be ‘building people, maximising business potential.’
