Good Things Happen, Episode 6: Learning and Leading

The pace at which we learn and the skillsets needed to succeed are continually evolving. Along with changing how we work and live, the pandemic also accelerated innovation in how we learn and train others. 

On this episode of “Good Things Happen,” we’re joined by Ida Liu, Global Head of Citi Private Bank, and Cameron Hedrick, Citi's Chief Learning Officer, to discuss a subject near and dear to our hearts: education. In this conversation, Ida and Cameron weigh in on the changing dynamics of education and what it means to learn and lead in today’s world.


They will dive into the synchronous relationship between in-person and virtual trainings and the nuances and necessities of both in the financial industry, as well as the growing importance of personal health and diversity in terms of training and supporting the workforce.
