iRider Training – March 24, 25, 26, 2010 – New York City

*** Please share this message with appropriate staff at your organization ***

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce our sponsorship of an iRider Training on Weds – Fri, March 24, 25, and 26. The three-day training will happen at EngenderHealth in New York:

  • Wednesday, March 26 from 9AM to 5PM (with a break for lunch)
  • Thursday, March 27 from 9AM to 5PM (with a break for lunch)
  • Friday, March 28 from 9AM to 5PM (with a break for lunch)

Keith Edwards, Lissette Bernal-Cruz, Tuba Coskun, David Manuel, and Bill Lester – all experienced iRiders – will be leading the training.

iRiding Training is geared towards staff who train other staff. An iRider is someone from a team who trains other staff in the tool/solutions/best practices that they use to get their work done. If you have people on your staff who go from office to office training staff on topics like…

  • Standard Operating Procedures
  • Using your Finance System
  • Using your Enterprise Resource Planning System
  • Project Management Best Practices
  • Monitoring & Evaluation Tools and Best Practices
  • Human Resources, etc.

…then they are de facto iRiders. They may or may not have these duties as part of their job description and they may be field-based or headquarters-based, but the requirements for being able to effectively transfer knowledge and skills to others go beyond just knowing the content. These are the kinds of staff who benefit from the added skills iRider training provides.

iRider Training helps to improve the peer-learning process, by treating the iRider as an “internal consultant” and giving him/her the skills that good consultants use when working with clients. Some examples of existing EngenderHealth iRiders are Keith Edwards from the Compliance Team, Tuba Coskun from the Knowledge Resource Center, and David (Fifi) Manuel from the Monitoring & Evaluation Team. Since many of these iRiders work externally, you might have experienced them at sector meetings, like InsideNGO or NTEN.
