At NilesNolen, we believe in deliberate change. Change for good, for ROI, for people. This is beyond technology. It is becoming learner-centric and better business outcomes. It is data, not intuition. If you’re looking for no-nonsense, expert-led consultancy and honest, business-critical support, you’ve come to the right place.

Our services

We challenge our clients and encourage them to unpick complex business challenges. To look beyond the quick-fix solutions. To really understand their issues and translate them into clear learning needs.

This is learning transformed into a competitive advantage. This is NilesNolen.

L&D transformation

Solving learning problems isn’t always about introducing tech; it’s time to dig a little deeper. It’s time to use data to make better decisions. And it’s time to ensure everything you do is truly-learner centric and always delivers value to the business.

Strategic consultancy

Whether you’re a vendor or an investor, our niche industry experience is unparallelled. We’ll help you understand your market and provide impartial insights. We give you expertise. And we support and inspire you to make informed, data-led business decisions.


A key aspect of transformation and progression is encouraging others to evolve their thinking too. Our speaking engagements ensure your audiences get on board. And become just as impassioned as you are about change.

Our Clients

We’re helping our clients to evolve thinking, move beyond normal and shatter superficial, temporary solutions. Because regardless of the business, we all need to be thinking about learning differently.

A unique perspective

"I had the absolute pleasure to work with Amanda and Lori during my time as the CLO of Vodafone, the global technology communication company. They will keep you on the straight and narrow: think outcomes first, EdTech solutions second, when you start building your learning strategy or even just the quarterly plan. Stop running after shiny things and be led by data. It's great to see this female power house getting together to disrupt the industry and guide other CLO's in need of a sounding board."

- Catalina Schveninger, ex-Global Head of Learning, Vodafone

2021 was an exciting year in ways we never expected.

A Bit About Us

Industry expertise

When it comes to the learning industry, we’ve earned our stripes. We’ve got the experience, expertise and failures under our belt to bring new thinking and innovation to your business.

Business-critical challenger

We’re not here to tell you what you want to hear. We’re here to get you results. And sometimes that means challenging yourself. Challenging conversations. And challenging the status quo from the perspective of people who understand your real barriers to change.

Focused on real results

We deliver measurable impact for our customers. That’s because we look beyond short-term solutions. We focus on the bigger picture. We help learning to become an integral part of business, instead of an afterthought. We deliver tangible, substantive success stories.

Lean and agile

When it comes to adapting to your business, small is better. Our boutique consultancy pivots rapidly to your requirements, giving you the flexibility you need to quickly shift to changes. We move at your speed, not the glacial pace of enterprise consultancies.
