A message from Andy...
Director, Learning Expert and more...
I launched Apples Learning Solutions LTD in March 2015, after over a decade working in Learning. Underpinned by the EASE methodology and with a vision to make learning easy, always.
Since then I've continued my love of designing and developing exceptional experiences and I've done this while working as a Contractor, Freelancer and Supplier to some of the biggest companies in the world. Not to mention launching our Online Learning Store, launching ALS Coaching and in Summer 2020 starting the process of taking all of our Facilitated learning online, to help people everywhere to continue to learn, grow and develop anytime.
If you're reading this, you're probably looking to make learning easy for you, your team or your organisation and by understanding why and how I work through Apples Learning Solutions LTD you'll learn what I do to make learning easy, always.
So how do I do what I do?
Firstly, it's worth pointing out that I rarely do it alone. When I'm working with a client on a Contract basis, any success I have is only possible because of the work the Client's team supports. When I'm supplying Learning Products (either Digital, Virtual or Classroom) I'm supported by an amazing graphics designer and her creativity to bring to life even the most abstract of concepts.
And when I work as a Leader or Partner on major client projects I'm supported by other experts in Learning through an extensive network of on-demand Facilitators and Designers.
Secondly, I do what I do by getting to the core of the challenge, knowing where the blockers are to making learning easy and then putting in place tools, frameworks and practices that break through barriers, deliver learning at the right time, to the right people in the right way.
Do you have any qualifications to back this up?
Absolutely, I've got lots of them. I have qualifications in Learning Design, E-Design, Consultancy, Leadership, Coaching and NLP. I'm also a member of the American Board of NLP (ABNLP/ABH/TLT) and Association of NLP (ANLP) at a practitioner and professional level. Not to mention over 15 years of experience too! If you want to know the specifics just ask.
Check out some of the work we've done, below:
Advisory & Consulting
As an associate of numerous Global Consultancy organisations (Achieve Forum, KornFerry, OxfordSM) we support some of the worlds largest businesses with recent assignments including learning technology management for Sanofi, a global pharmaceutical company (2020/21), developing a multi-level leadership development programme for DP World, a global logistics company (2019/20) and developing an exec-level strategic leadership programme for Gatwick Airport (2018/19).
Since our founding in 2015 we've partnered with major global organisations including Centrica (2016-18), Diageo (2019-21), Upfield (2019-21) to transform their L&D Strategy, Operations and Capability. From strategic direction and aligning all operations to deliver world-class experiences to re-modelling L&D Operations and developing robust, lean operating processes we're proud of the direct impact we have on learning culture, learning impact and learning experiences for thousands of employees across the globe.
We're nerds. And the fact that there hasn't been a single day since our founding that we've not been supporting a client with the selection, implementation or configuration of learning technology. Whether you're using an LMS (Like Cornerstone OnDemand, Moodle, Totara or Workday Learning), LXP (Like EdCast, Percipio, Degreed, Looop), Authoring Tool (Like Articulate, Captivate, Gomo, Evolve or Elucidat) or simply looking to improve your use of Microsoft products and the 0365 suite to improve your learning operations, we're experts in demystifying Learning Tech and making it work for you.
