Corporate Learning & Development

Learning and Development for performance, to build community, attract and retain talent, and enhance the Employee Experience!

My 20 years as a Learning & Development Professional leading, designing, and delivering workplace competencies for dynamic audiences taught me that the key to talent and learning retention, is prioritizing the employee experience.

“Wendy led the design of a key learning initiative for Rogers B2B sales professionals. She was able to lead and organize a diverse, cross-functional stakeholder group and make recommendations on learning strategy to achieve an excellent end-product. Wendy always takes ownership of the project and isn’t phased my ambiguity or complexity. I’d wholeheartedly recommend her to lead learning design initiatives and would be confident of her ability to exceed expectations.”

— Ben Hall, HR Lead at Rogers Communications

“I have had the opportunity to partner with Wendy on a number of key projects and initiatives for the Scotiabank Retail Banking Team. With each interaction, Wendy comes to the table as a true partner and learning professional. She builds amazing rapport with the teams, and takes the time to truly understand their teams and businesses. Only once she is confident with uncovering the need, she recommends unique and thoughtful solutions.”

— Richelle Roth, Senior Manager, Consumer Protection at Scotiabank

I have proven success in managing complex learning programs and client portfolios, driving business goals, and increasing retention through creative strategy & design, influential consulting, and engaging facilitation.

When it comes to training, Wendy has a flair for the dramatic – in the best way possible! Her natural gifts as an engaging facilitator are a huge complement to her expertise as a learning designer. Working alongside Wendy, I’ve seen her put in the hard work to hone her facilitation practice, especially in a virtual classroom environment.”
