SaaS model developed with the knowledge of how people learn, how they use mobile technology and of course how they interact with others.
Interactive Voice Technology(IVT) and SMS are the logical steps towards delivery of information using any mobile device. Adding conversational functionality to eLearning and class based role play.
Working with a very small team at Phone2Know my role included exploring the forgotten technologies of using a mobile device with it's legacy systems, delivering learning to every corner of the world with no new infrastructure.
I was the managing partner of The Learning Coach LLP, a training partnership that specialises in training the trainer to design and deliver more effective learning.
A partnership offering customised learning events designed to address learning challenges, improve the effectiveness of your learning design and increase usage.
My roles included:
To start I was a Trailblazer for London 2012. My role was to train in classroom a substantial number of the interviewers who interviewed 100,000 people for the role of Games Maker for the London Olympics.
The role moved to train on site and in classroom 12, 000 team leaders for their role at games time and then to train substantial number in games time role specific tasks.
In the last 4 months I took a full time contract to plan and deliver the complete Field of Play event of Modern Pentathlon(Fencing, Swimming and Combined Event) during the Games.
My role included all planning, creating learning, delivering skills training and managing and supervising the field of play during the actual events.
An exciting opportunity to use all of my event delivery skills.
I was a part of a team that delivered 1 million hours of training to 200, 000 Games Makers and Contractors with a mission critical end date.
Trainer1 was the first company to offer a service of creating a self sufficient eLearning development team to organisations.
Supplied both Authoring Tools imported from around the world and delivered courses on how to implement them, use them effectively and taught instructional design to allow DIY eLearning.
Built a client base of many hundreds of self authors and provided a number of value added services to the industry, including offering the first hosted Learning Management System for small companies in the UK.
During this period I was involved in developing an context sensitive performance support tool that worked to deliver learning on any program active on a user computer. A project that called on all of my prior programming skills and use of many technologies and languages.
In a move from manufacturing to training I opened a business called 'by Design Learning'. Contracted to deliver training alongside the installation of technical equipment for contracts in Malaysia, China and Italy.
On taking a contract with Coopers and Lybrand as an external consultant it became obvious that automation and electronic delivery was required. I had fallen into the world of CBT which in turn led to eLearning.
I formed the European operation of a software development company. Imported the first eLearning multimedia authoring tools from the USA to the UK and Europe. Company was merged into Trainer1 in 2001
As a master silversmith working in London, I built a technological manufacturing plant in Islington Central London using electrochemistry and bleeding edge computer driven control. I employed many talented skilled staff and trained a new influx of apprentices. The company produced reproductions for museums across the USA to be sold in their museum stores, created large' famous' trophies, and worked within many institutions in the UK restoring some of the country's treasures for display.
