I was formerly responsible for the career paths and training budgets of large communities of professionals in various companies. I was continuously frustrated with the amount of time it took to select courses and training vendors because there is a lack of independent performance analytics in the training industry as a whole.

I started Course Conductor because I believe our skills are the key to successful transformation as individuals and as companies. I'm passionate about helping people-centric companies make more informed and successful training investment decisions. Course Conductor is leading the way by collecting peer-to-peer course review data and using our patent-pending algorithms to create unique analytics so companies can make wiser, quicker and more successful training investment decisions.
