Work Experience

In working as an independent consultant for the past 25 years or so, I’ve served over 70 organizations, throughout Canada and the United States, in a wide variety of sectors and fields.  Also, running my own company, Connected Conversations™, has given me direct experience in areas that most organizations have to attend to, e.g. marketing, communications, accounting, etc.

I believe this breadth of exposure is certainly a plus in terms of the value I can provide an organization – one can be more effective in a learning and development role the more one understands all parts of an organization, both as distinct groups and how they fit together in the big picture.

To make it easier for you to navigate this section, I’ve broken it down in several ways so you can focus in on what’s of most interest to you.  Just click on any of the buttons or tags, below.

As a learning and development professional, subject matter, in a way, is irrelevant.  Whether it’s needs assessment, instructional design, eLearning development, facilitation or learning sustainment, it’s having a sound process that counts.  The subject matter, or content, is what populates the processes.

Aside from the skills I utilize as a learning and development professional, I’m also considered a subject matter expert in the areas listed below.
