Set the ambition and foundations for learning in your organisation.
I’m Paul Jocelyn, a corporate learning strategy specialist. I help transforming businesses to change faster through promoting, enabling and embedding learning.
Looking forward there are huge opportunities for your business, but your approach to learning can be a barrier. To capitalise, your organisation will need to be better at learning new things than at perfectly executing on what you already know.
Every business wants a “learning culture” but this culture gap is a symptom. Organisations built on control struggle with the shift to continual learning. This needs people to be curious, ask more questions and feel safe to try new things.
Your learning strategy needs to create this environment – otherwise your best people will take their ideas and potential elsewhere.
Four ways I can help:
- Review your current learning strategy and make recommendations
- Help you set a new learning strategy for your business
- Build a completely new learning ‘operating model’
- Work with you to reshape your L&D team for now and the future
As a consultant and advisor I’ve worked with Atalian Servest, Capgemini, Coty, Dyson, Fortnum & Mason, Kwik-Fit, Lidl UK, Nomad Foods, Ricoh, Samsung, Specsavers, Tesco and VolkerWessels to rethink and reset their learning strategy.
Many leaders are completely blind to the need for learning transformation. They have no frame to imagine how it might be any other way and don’t even know what to ask about.
If you don’t see the opportunities in joining up your strategy for growth and the capabilities you’ll need to achieve it
If you just want to make your current training programmes “better” or “more digital”
If the future of your business still depends on ‘command and control’
If you’re happy to contract out ‘learning’ to the L&D team
Then I’m not someone you’ll benefit from working with.
Still in? Then read on!
“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!”
- Holly Hurkett, Head of Retail Learning & Development at Specsavers

A long held criticism of ‘L&D’ is that it is “full of solutions looking for a problem”.
