I'd like to host the

Learning Marathon in London

Hi I'm Piarve. I want to host a multidisciplinary peer group for 20-30 year olds who aspire to start a business or completely change their career. Help me launch by letting me know you might be interested.

 

What's the Learning Marathon?

A 6 month learning accelerator where you grow yourself, together with a dozen peers each tackling their own challenge. 

With support from your host, you pool your ideas, skills, experience, perspectives and momentum to create a rich 'soil' that will fuel your growth. Together you take on the Path, 6 months of activities designed to maximise your collective potential.

Your host

Piarve has a nerdy love for marketing and does this professionally at Informa, while running a platform for creative self-starters at Colèchi where we bridge culture, education and business through monthly events, goal setting workshops and interviews from creatives posted on our blog.

 

In my spare time you’ll catch me running around in mummy-land; submitting articles inspired by social observations and writing short stories themed around the city.

I've facilitated workshops as a freelancer with venues including the V&A, The Southbank Center and Makerversity, and look forward to going on a journey of crazy growth with 12 ambitious Londoners.

Dates and details

What does the programme look like?

All the detail is here. The Learning Marathon is designed to fit alongside work. Fortnightly meetups are therefore on weekday evenings and longer intensive days tend to be over the weekend.

​What's the application process like?

The application process is simple. You'll tell us a bit about yourself and make a short proposal for the project you'll work on via an application form. If you're shortlisted you will have an interview with your host over the phone.

​What's the time commitment?

The guideline we give is that you will need to be able to commit 5+ hours per week. Some weeks it will be more, other weeks it may be less. Some of this time will be spent in meetups and workshops, some of it will be self-initiated.

 

What do we look for in participants?

  1. Commitment to a Learning Question that you will pursue as a self-led project.

  2. Real interest in learning with and from a group of peers. You'll have great listening skills and be able to work in collaboration, articulate your ideas and make them visible. 

  3. A proactive spirit. You come with lots of ideas and creative energy to make them a reality.

 

We also welcome applications from pairs or collaborators working on the same goal or project. 

Your host will be thinking about the range of skills and attributes that applicants will bring, looking for connections between Learning Questions, and aiming to connect you to peers who will multiply your learning.

Expressions of interest

You can help Piarve launch her peer group by making an expression of interest and/or spreading the word. You'll be first to know when applications open. You can send any questions to hello@enrolyourself.com.
