    In our industry, we have become overly focused on the volume and arrangement of content, instead of its value. The real insight is that you can’t really design relevance; you can only design the environment or systems that promote it. Relevance ultimately is in the eye of the learner—not the designer. During this engagement, Matt will share a highly interactive approach to Review, Envision, and Rethink the learning eco-system, organizational design, learning processes, and model. This transformational methodology for developing a learning strategy and blueprint applies a learner-centric approach to understand the current state of an organization, the desired future state of the learning experience, and the organizational features required to achieve the vision of the future.

    Early in life, Matt found a natural curiosity that not only led to a passion for learning and sharing with others, but it also got him into trouble. He found that classes and teachers that nurtured a personalized

    approach really resonated, while those that did not were demotivating and affected his relationship with the content. Matt often says that these early experiences shaped his career. He has been blessed with a

    range of opportunities to work with innovative organizations that advocate for the learner, endeavor to deliver relevance, and look to bend technology to further these goals.

    Currently, as the Vice President of GP Strategies Learning Solutions Group, Matt leads global learning design, development, and delivery organization for Fortune 500 companies. Matt has more than 20 years’ experience leading teams in the crafting of training and development solutions with a focus on performance-driven learning. He has led the production of more than 400 custom online courses in the area of sales, marketing, manufacturing, clinical research, compliance, leadership, and ethics. Selections from these courses have been highlighted as exemplars in e-learning publications. Matt’s teams have earned industry recognition, including multiple Brandon Hall and Horizon Interactive awards.

    Matt has presented at several national/international conferences including ISPI, ATD, e-Learning Guild, and SPBT and was recognized as one of the Top Ten International Trainers under 40 by Training Magazine. Matt received a presidential citation from ISPI for his work in establishing the ISPI Annual HPT Case Competition.
