You have arrived at this page as you are looking for an instructional designer or
you are interested in finding out what an instructional designer does. Hopefully
I can satisfy both these with the information here and hopefully my skill set is
what you are looking for. I Have been designing and delivering soft skills training
for almost two decades and have held senior Training and Development roles prior
to branching out on my own.
INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN AND TRAINING COURSE DESIGN
My experience has shown me that many training programmes miss the mark because the
training design is poorly done and the training does not engage the needs of the
learners. Now this could be a problem from initially scoping the project itself but
on the whole much "so called" training is nothing more than a glorified presentation.
As an instructional Designer My role is to put the learning together in such a way
that it takes minimum time, delivers maximum return, is enjoyable, memorable and
is at the right intellectual level for the audience. In effect people need to remember
what they have learned. To do this I use the latest techniques in Brain Based Learning
(Accelerated Learning) and my experience designing training programmes to create
the most effective training programme possible.

I've been delivering and designing quality soft skills training for over a decade
now and have gained a good degree of proficiency, that commands a sensible day rate.
The only word of warning is that I will not work for a few hundred pounds/dollars/euros
a day. My thoughts are you get what you pay for and I am able to pick and choose
the work I do.
If you are looking for someone for a short term training project, someone to provide
consultancy in setting up or running a training department, or a global rollout of
training programmes, please contact me.
