Why you need to hire me

Most people who work in corporate organisations would agree that L&D departments are chronically overworked and constantly have too many things happening at the same time. Well, there is good news, you can make life easier while saving money at the same time — switch to eLearning. The first step should be looking around and seeing which of your trainings can be moved to eLearning. Things like compliance training, workshops, trainings on policies, product knowledge courses are just a few examples. By offering eLearning to your staff will not only allow the training department to have more time for other important functions, but will also save you a lot of money in the long run, and will offer the opportunity for continuous training and re-training without any additional cost.

Hiring a professional like me will most likely pan out to be a great business decision because I have a unique set of skills not necessarily found easily within your organisation. Sure, there is an administrative component of planning and executing training but there is expertise required in developing a curriculum that balances the needs of employees, understanding of compliance and requirements of licensing and certification, and I will improve the soft skills of the entire company. Finally, I have the technical knowledge to produce and deliver the training at a world class level.

Often times, clients have a perspective on how to solve the problem they are facing but want to make sure that what they’re thinking is correct (or that they aren’t so close to the challenge that they’re missing the obvious answer). So, they turn to consultants to come in and provide their opinion.

It often takes an authoring tool to produce quality learning experiences. If you work with true professionals like me, that makes sure that your learning solution is designed using the best tool for the job.

I have noticed that sometimes, when companies are working on a challenging problem or a controversial project, it can be hard for the managers to make decisions or take the necessary actions without getting entangled in emotions or politics. So, they bring in consultants like me to provide an unbiased eye and do some of the dirty work for them. So, if you are interested, feel free to reach out to me. I’m more than happy to help.

I love the ability where I can plan, prioritise, design, develop and deliver blended learning solutions for a variety of markets. I love to consult and advise about the best use of digital learning and improve design standards in line with evolving ways of working. I also enjoy to keep up to date with, understand and regularly recommend emerging technologies and practice to improve individuals, teams and organisational capabilities. With over 12 years digital learning experience and demonstrated experience in both instructional design and eLearning development, I have also a lot of experience conducting training needs analysis including how to leverage principles such as design thinking and root cause analysis to understand and address performance gaps. I also have led many facilitation workshops and even presented at iDesignX and Game Developers Conferences both here in Australia, Wales and in the United States. I bring loads of coding experience in Java, ASM, C++, HTML, JavaScript, SCORM and xAPI, as well as proven capability using Adobe Captivate, Trivantis Lectora and Articulate Storyline 360 Studio authoring programs. Of course, Adobe Creative Cloud is also part of my toolbox which I also use daily. Being taught traditional and advanced 3D animation techniques, I love hand drawing and polymer clay sculpture, but can also use the Blender, 3D Studio Max, Maya and Softimage applications. With strong multimedia, training and programming backgrounds, I understand modern learner behaviour including micro and social learning, I am very familiar with most LMSes and app-based (XCode and Android Studio), adult learning models and e-solutions. I also possess the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously, whilst being pro-active in delivering work independently with minimal supervision, but enjoy working in teams. I've been told I am a resilient, relationship focused guy which can manage and navigate conflicting views and stakeholders/subject matter experts.
