    Where have I been? 

    Some may have thought I was suffering from SoMeFat (social media fatigue) if you were one of those you were wrong.

    For the last three months I have been busily working away to reposition what the world knew as Trainer1 into The Learning Coach. A transformation that has taken much soul searching and research into what L&D is asking for and needs. I hope I have got it right.

    The result you can find at the website http://www.thelearningcoach.co.uk

    There are new people on board including Alan Samuel (ex Tata Interactive and Ogilvy) and Delia Walton Kennedy (ex Central office of Information) who join the regular team forming a great new partnership.

    So I am back to blogging and tweeting again, it’s all about the art of conversation.

    Need some advice? Looking to improve your skill set or your team’s knowledge? Let’s talk.
