About me:

I am passionate about enabling people to have the opportunity to learn in the most effective way for them as individuals. There is no 'right' or 'wrong' way to learn, it is about the individuals preference. We, as L&D professionals, need to recognise this and offer opportunties to empower learning for the individual.
