Customization is key for the ultimate impact of a learning initiative. Learning solutions are tailored to each organization’s objectives. Content delivery for Finance Training programs, or Customized Executive Workshops, can range from an intense day, to journeys that mix face-to-face and online components over several months.

Much of the content is based on my experiences working for top executive education providers. I’ve taught in very different settings: large global companies like Shell or Ernst & Young; smaller regional or national audiences; or more focused audiences like the Websummit. Audiences have ranged from 10 to more than 1,000 people. Every experience is unique.

Throughout my years working in executive education, I have worked hard with organizers (HR directors, CLOs and leaders of functional teams) to ensure my content aligns to their objectives. I want the audience to leave an educational event energized and inspired to take action that creates lasting impact.

look forward to collaborating with you.
