Devaan Parbhoo
Manager, Learning Design & Learning Development at Santam


My personal purpose statement is to enable a workforce to be productive and efficient by ensuring every step in the organisation adds value to our ecosystem.

I've had the privilege of pioneering a App that removed the need for employees at Discovery to be at work in order to track learning and engage with curated content from the organisation. I drove the culture of micro-learning and the notion that one does not need to be in the classroom to learning, you learning anywhere, so how do we as learning professionals tap into "anywhere" and use those learnings to impact skills development (and the scorecard).

At WesBank, I created a vision, strategy and platform that connected WesBank's great people to meaningful information for immediate consumption and solved performance problems for today and all their future endeavours through 90 day programmes, visualising data and the generation of performance insights that enabled management to make performance decisions in the moment.

I’m currently at Santam Insurance enabling leaders to have courageous conversations by creating a compelling vision for the future, solve for simplicity, connect people to possibilities, cultivate innovation and be digitally savvy.
