For L&D Departments


For organisations intent on developing their L&D teams, Donald can provide a 1- or 2-day face-to-face workshop on Digital Learning in the Workplace. For more information on this, please contact him directly.

Annual horizon scanning

Donald also offers L&D departments a ‘horizon scanning’ briefing that gives Learning and Development professionals a sense of the wider trends in current and upcoming techniques and technologies.

Usually delivered annually, these briefings help give L&D teams a check that they’re on the right course, as well as suggesting ways to further develop themselves.

The format for these briefings can range from an online interview to a face-to-face presentation to a whole-day workshop.

For Vendors

For vendors in the L&D space, Donald regularly provides the following:

  • Hosting and speaking at conferences
  • Webinar delivery and hosting
  • Advice on profile raising in the UK and Europe

For example, Donald has keynoted user conferences for NetDimensions and LearningPool, and was MC at the 2016 CrossKnowledge Talent Conference in Paris. He regularly hosts webinars for vendors such as Infor and Lexonis, and has written white papers for Saba, the Open University and OpenSesame.

All of these activities are ad hoc. For more information on working with Donald, please contact him directly.
