We started out in 2013 with a mission to help global organisations to connect meaningfully with their learning audiences. Engagement is still at the heart of everything we do. We’re a senior team working with brilliant clients on cutting-edge HR, talent, learning and marketing projects.
I co-founded LearnerLab with Carl Hodler in 2013. My expertise lies in research, analysis and strategy, and like everyone in our team I’m obsessive about engagement for learning.
It’s our mission to make learning central to the way organisations and societies succeed. Technology and communications can empower people to reflect and share learning stories that help us all improve – not just react to what’s happening around us.
My experience has grown over many years, helping all kinds of businesses, brands and educators show leadership through strategic learning communications, campaigns and powerful storytelling.
I love working with our brilliant, forward thinking clients and bringing energy and invention to complex challenges. And often a bit of humour too. I’m also very proud of our growing, super-smart team who all share the same commitment and purpose.
I’m co-founder of LearnerLab with Cheryl Clemons, and I’m lucky enough to work with a great team of people who are just as excited as me about creating ‘always on’ learning cultures.
Over 20 years in digital education and entertainment has taught me a lot. I’m passionate about using digital transformation to make experiences more personal, engaging and, well, better.
Right now, most of my time is dedicated to StoryTagger, our innovative new service that helps organisations to create, collect and curate their own valuable learning story content. It’s a very exciting time.
If you’re a games nut, you may be interested to know that I was shortlisted for two BAFTAs for projects with Channel 4, living a childhood dream designing games for the likes of PlayStation, Disney, and BBC. You can find out more about my life as a games designer at www.hodler.co.uk
I love being part of a high-performance culture, making a positive difference to organisations and their people.
Being at LearnerLab gives me a great opportunity to work with a fantastically smart team and equally smart clients, all with a firm focus on the future. We work together to build effective and progressive learning cultures that make a real difference.
With extensive experience in digital and learning industries, my specialities lie in strategy, operations and HR. I’ve built a strong reputation for professionalism, calm and considered problem solving, good decision-making and strategic and tactical thinking.
I am a trusted advisor and an effective, influential leader and people manager. I’m always learning, always excited to see people and teams thriving. Often singing. And sometimes camping.
I bring a broad range of professional experience to LearnerLab, with a keen focus on organisational change, transition and transformation. I’ve designed and managed a number of complex and cross-functional international projects, including systems and process re-engineering, as well as cost savings.
‘Hands-on’ is how I’d describe the way I work, closely collaborating with clients to solve problems and create positive, long-lasting results. My analytical skills and affinity for metrics help me form effective strategies and proposals, and I’m adept at communicating complex information in simple, lucid terms.
I’ve worked in the past with the TUI Group, and more recently, with the Real Experience Group in Brighton. As a certified Change Manager and MBA-holder, I’m continuously trying to develop myself and become better at what I do.
As LearnerLab’s creative lead I bring more than 20 years of experience in brand and digital marketing to our client’s projects.
I’m the digital architect of more than 190 responsive websites, booking engines, and other online campaigns for brands including Ford, Age UK, Orange, Domino Pizza and the Royal Opera House.
And I’ve won an award or two along the way, including Brands of the World (Silver), and a Gold, Silver and Bronzes at the MIMAs (Event Industry Awards). There are others, but I don’t like to boast.
I always aim to inject a touch of magic into everything I do – from generating ideas and high-level concepts to designing engaging websites, comms, and meaningful user experiences.
I’ve been writing for all kinds of audiences across a multitude of sectors for more than 15 years now, both agency and client-side. I’ve honed my craft on projects for big corporates like BSkyB and Sony to small start-ups, SMEs, charities and more.
Whether it’s coming up with a winning campaign idea, capturing the right tone of voice for a website or composing effective internal comms, I’ve always loved the challenge that persuasive copywriting presents. And LearnerLab represents a fast-flowing stream of exciting, progressive projects to sharpen my skills on.
The crux of what I do is helping brands and organisations to connect and engage meaningfully with their customers, their people and the wider world. I’d say the most important factor in making that connection is understanding your audience.
That’s a big part of why working with the LearnerLab team is so rewarding. The depth of analysis, research and insight really shapes the effectiveness of my copy, so we can support every project with truly engaging and purposeful communications.
