More to learn[edit]

Further details about what I would like to learn.

Leadership growth and sustainability - Useful skills-set that will make me a better leader and influential facilitator both within and outside of Wikimedia circles

Networking within the community - Reaching out to new people, sharing ideas, establishing new connections is everything is the 21st century. This topic will expose me to the practical techniques to expanding my network within the Wikimedia ecosystem for better collaborations

Deeper understanding of (wikidata) tools - I love data analytics and visualization and Wikidata is one such powerful project that I need to build capacity in for use in my line of work as a researcher

Stories about sharing[edit]

Interesting stories about applying the skills I want to share.

Proposal writing - I love to share my proposal writing experience with colleagues. I have been involved in the art of developing proposals for close to 8 years and interest areas range from economics, agriculture to library and information science.

Project implementation - Project implementation is a skill-set is developed via hands-on experience. I have 10 years experience with project implementation and MEL and I believe sharing this knowledge with others will empower them as well.

Research skills - I have been involved with several research projects and authored/co-authored a number of scientific papers. These are the outputs of the research skills I possess which I am willing to openly share with the community.
