About Rikki

Charles Darwin said…

The species that survive are nor the strongest nor the most intelligent,
but the ones that best adapt to change.

I am Doris Edwards. I have built Rikki’s Place for you, the Busy Professional, to help you keep up with change, refresh what you already know, and learn new things at the same time.

As children, we start out with a blank slate, and by the time we become adults, we will have acquired a treasure of knowledge which we will need to nourish continuously as we journey through life.

But have you noticed? If we don’t practice regularly what we know, we tend to forget.

Rikki’s Place is not a figment of my imagination but the result of many years of experience as an Adult Trainer and an entrepreneur. I founded my own training company in Geneva, Switzerland in 1980!

Learning continuously is a prerequisite for holding a job and being successful, be it as a leader, an employee or an entrepreneur.

Luckily, new ways of acquiring knowledge have become possible, thanks to online technology. Traditional classroom teaching will, of course, continue to be popular. But other powerful and innovative learning platforms are emerging all the time, giving us the possibility to acquire small but relevant knowledge nuggets exactly when we need them – and sharing them with others through social media networks.

So, why the name “Rikki’s Place” ?

One of the great stories I remember from my childhood is the Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. I particularly adored Rikki Tikki Tavi, the brave mongoose.

And this is how rikki-tikki-tavi.com has become our company’s emblem on the Web. Rikki’s Place is the video blog that goes with it.
