My Approach

I’m a bit of a learning nerd at my core. I enjoy all aspects of learning, but focus a lot of my time and energy on the design and development of learning solutions. I believe in designing learning that addresses business problems, is fit for purpose and builds employee capability. I start by gaining an understanding of what’s required for the project. I’ll think about the learners and what they need, then work backwards and consult with stakeholders and get to a point where the two meet. I’m creative, collaborative and a straight shooter when it comes to working on projects

I’m a no fuss and low maintenance designer. Flexible against changing requirements. Non-conventional and out of the box thinker, but will always align to what the client wants.

Let’s work together

ANZ

Thank you very much, it has been great working with you on the training materials for Project Sage. The content produced has exceeded our expectations, and working with you was a pleasure.

Patrick Corrigan – Senior Project Manager 

IAG

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you during this challenging time. I am delighted with the online learning that has been created to date for CTP Claims staff. This will help us to adopt a flexible and blended approach to learning – enabling it to be more learner led and leader enabled. The modules certainly will help to engage the learner through the great amount of content/resources available to them – a credit to you!

Anna Trubshaw – Capability Specialist

Transurban

I just wanted you to know what a pleasure it was working with John. The quality of his work has been outstanding and he has been extremely flexible with our changed requirements. John also quickly understood the technical aspects of the system, but was able to write user friendly material.
