L&D Transformation

It’s time to look at the bigger picture. No longer is learning and development a single, siloed function within the wider organisation. L&D has the potential to be pivotal. Transformational. Integral. If only we approach it differently.

We’re not going to lie. Change is hard. Global digital learning transformations are even harder. They’re complex and can be completely daunting. So where do you start?

You start with us. We’ve been through these processes ourselves and we know L&D inside out, so we’re here to support your entire transformation process. Learn how to optimise and improve. Understand how to drive impact. And help you develop new skills in critical thinking sustain your L&D transformation long after our engagement.

“I met Lori Niles-Hofmann and Amanda Nolen in 2018, when we started defining the business case for a new L&D Ecosystem in Santander. We were on a burning platform and were starting from scratch, leveraging internal and external research and getting in touch with external experts who could share their experience with us. Lori and Amanda were among these experts and they really were an inspiration for my team and me. Lori’s knowledge about bank industry and the digitalisation of L&D and Amanda’s expertise in the EdTech environment made a real difference and helped us to set the foundation of our transformation.

I learned many things from Lori and Amanda, but if I have to pick a few I would say: obsession with data, brutal efficiency when it comes to learning, focus and determination in changing L&D skills and roles towards a completely new way of working and—last but not least— “digital body language”. Thanks Lori and Amanda for showing us the way!”
