Why Hire a Learning and Development Consultant?

Why outsource when I can do it myself? You’re likely quite busy with your day-to-day duties that come with your position. Do you really have the time to devote to analysis, goal setting, and implementation? Do you have the right team members with the knowledge and skill-set to implement your learning and development project? Let me guide you in the right direction. (For more information on my typical projects, check out the eLearning Case Studies.)

Won’t this add extra cost to my project?

You know what’s really expensive? Not doing anything! Hire me as your consultant to make the first step in achieving your goals.  Effective implementation of your learning and development project is designed to drive business results—it’s best to get it right the first time. Good, effective learning and development programs will pay for itself 10-fold.

Petra did wonderful work for us on an LMS feasibility study. She was incredibly thorough, provided good questions and insights that we had not thought of plus delivered extra information that added value to the whole project. I would highly recommend her.
