The challenge is to make learning stick no matter the environment: work, school or extracurricular training.  Stakeholders must engage learners with inspired workshop, on-line lesson or corporate training interactions so that learners experience immediate benefits that translate to success.  Ultimate success = no matter the new skill or knowledge delivery process, students are sparked to return on their own for more.

Hi, I’m Lauren. I’m a certified instructional designer (CPLP) delivering creative and engaging learning solutions across academic & corporate industries: health, financial software, energy and sustainable construction to name a few. 

For over 20 years, I’ve been helping organizations achieve greater client and staff technical performance. 

Previously I was Global Training Manager at EcoSys and created the blended online client program for enterprise project forecasting, measurement and reporting based on Adobe Captivate, Connect and Presenter.
