Because true transformation and progression comes from a collective shift in mindset.

Our areas of expertise

Thinking differently

Everything we do at NilesNolen comes back to one key point: Thinking differently. To be successful in the modern workplace means changing mindsets and challenging the status quo.

L&D transformation

Most companies approach digital transformation from a technology point of view. Though that is paramount, we’re here to get your audiences to think about the bigger picture. From EdTech business strategy through to deliberate upskilling, we believe true transformation comes from challenging the status quo.

Data analytics

Data has the ability to transform your L&D function and help you design learning that your people not only need, but want. An often overlooked area of L&D, we’re passionate about sharing our knowledge and expertise on why data is critical to L&D success.

Change management

Here at NilesNolen, we’re passionate about helping companies navigate through the ambiguity of change. Whether that’s educating learners on its necessity, or speaking about the practical implications of change.

Passionate about learning

Here at NilesNolen we believe that effective learning can bring about true organisational change. And we want to kick-start that change in your organisation at your next event, either face-to-face or digitally.

We believe in deliberate change. And to create change, we have to shift mindsets. We aim to encourage people to think differently in all that we do – not least our features at events, podcasts, webinars and more. 

Both Amanda and Lori can speak on a wide range of topics, from data-driven learning and digital transformation, to change management and the ethics of upskilling. If you want NilesNolen at your next event, get in touch.
