Hi eLearning community! I’m very happy to announce that I have joined the amazing Litmos team as the Chief Learning Strategist. My official start was April 1st, but I didn’t want to announce it then because…well…April 1st is a bad day to announce anything.
I’ve been part of the eLearning community for a very long time…even before we called it eLearning. Remember, CBT and WBT? (Actually, one of my first speaking gigs was at the WBT Producer conference.) My time in corporate america building training solutions, and training teams, was fun and rewarding. And my time with The eLearning Guild was without question the highlight of my career to date. But joining the Litmos team is an experience I know will be a ride to remember. The team has big plans!
I remember when @schnicker (Litmos co-founder) first joined the #lrnchat community and joined us for one of our “LIVE #LRNCHAT” events at Devlearn…09 I think. And then meeting @richchetwynd (Litmos co-founder) when they became a part of the Guild vendor expos. And seeing their Litmos product for the first time gave me hope that the eLearning product community was catching up with newer web technologies and becoming comfortable with SaaS (software as a service).
Fast forward to today, and I’m thrilled to be part of the team, and products, that I’ve admired since those early days. Litmos is now part of CallidusCloud which strengthened the deal for me. Many of you are familiar with what Litmos is as an LMS, and that alone would have been enough for me to get involved. But what really excites me is what Litmos can, and will, be in the FUTURE! Wayne Gretzky famously stated that his success comes from skating to, not where the puck is, but where it’s going. And where Litmos is going is where I believe the corporate eLearning and training industry is going. Stay tuned for more on that in later posts.
I look forward to seeing everyone soon at the many industry events, and of course, on social media. Cheers!
