Profile

Since 2004 I have modernised learning experiences, balanced efficiency and effectiveness with the overarching goal of enhancing people performance and meeting department level key performance indicators. I lead teams toward modern approaches in using learning technology to achieve business goals.

May 2019 to Present

Senior Training and Adoption Consultant @ ServiceNow

  • I support ServiceNow clients with their digital transformation and adoption of ServiceNow solutions, in the Training and Certification department.
  • I have pioneered the creation of new offerings of self-study courses, videos and help guides ensuring the financial models are appropriately adjusted to account for a blend of learning solutions. This has required forming partnerships with Sales, Marketing, Customer Success, Professional Services and Technical Development teams. It has also meant inspiring colleagues, gathering their "wish list" and converting this into a road map of milestones to modernise the learning solutions, moving from classroom-centric towards web-centric formats.
  • I have also pioneered the use of ServiceNow's learning platform, called Now Learning, ensuring new certification courses tie up with ServiceNow's six monthly product release cycle. These have enhanced adoption, reduced the need for "just in case" learning and increased "just in time" support.
  • Learning assets created by me are used by ServiceNow partners and software implementers.
