Build new capability through a more dynamic approach to organisational learning.

We don’t have a learning culture here” is a symptom. It’s a symptom of your learning strategy being too focused on control and looking backwards. It means the approach to learning isn’t disrupting the status quo in your organisation and helping it to change faster.

I’m Paul Jocelyn, an organisational learning strategy expert.  I help ambitious mid sized companies entering a time of significant change build new capability – through a more defined, aligned and ambitious approach to organisational learning. The goal? To enable your business to compete in complexity.

Learning is the most powerful accelerator of change and growth. To capitalise, you’ll need to enable your people to be as good at learning new things as they are at executing on what they already know. 

Do you need to create this environment to accelerate change? You’ll need a clear learning ‘philosophy’ and approach, connected to the right principles and tools. You will also need to build the capability of your managers and your HR / L&D function to accelerate your new learning strategy.  


Four ways I can help:  

  • Review your current organisational learning strategy and make insightful recommendations to improve it
  • Help you set out a new, growth focused organisational learning strategy for your business
  • Build a completely new learning ‘operating model’ that changes why, how and where your people learn
  • Work with you to reshape your Capability / L&D team capability and priorities for now and the future 

As a consultant and advisor I work with evolving businesses including Atalian Servest, Capgemini, Coty, Dyson, Fortnum & Mason, Kwik-Fit, Lidl UK, Nomad Foods, Ricoh, Samsung, Specsavers, Tesco and VolkerWessels to help them rethink and reset their organisational learning strategy. 

You can read testimonials from other business leaders I’ve helped below and on the other pages of my website.

I'd highly recommend Paul to help L&D leaders articulate their strategy in this ever changing environment. My team and I were always left energised by a conversation with Paul in this space. Prepare to have your thinking stretched!

I can help if...

Your current approach to organisational learning isn’t developing the new capability you need

Your teams need to adapt, innovate and solve new problems

Your people have high expectations of learning from you

Your business and learning strategies need to be 100% ‘in sync’

‘Working’ and ‘learning’ are still treated as separate things

When your business says ‘learning‘ it still means ‘training

Your leaders struggle to role model and support continual learning

Paul very quickly got to grips with the brief of what was required, and really understands modern ways of learning and the impact on cultural fit. He was a real help and support to me in providing invaluable resources, insights and tools to help create a learning strategy fit for the future.”

- Julia Manning, Head of Learning & Development at Fortnum & Mason

"Paul challenged my thinking around L&D; to look at learning as a strategic driver for businesses, to see yourself as an L&D professional who partners, consults and delivers for the business through learning and inspiration. Paul brings an inspirational, innovative and personable approach that rubs off on all those around him."
