Hi all.


I always enjoy looking at profiles to see if contributers have listed where they're from - geographically and industry - not everyone lists this info though.


So - what kind of industries do you work in? I'm curious to know what areas have embraced e-Learning the most. I've noticed a lot of posts from people in the Healthcare sector here.


I've mostly worked in telecommunications, and implemented e-Learning frameworks (off the shelf and customised) in a couple of those companies. Now I'm in the world of insurance, and creating customised courses here.

I'm in Guildford, Surrey, in the United Kingdom. Looking back, most of my experience is focused around two main industry sectors; Software and Telecommunications. And I now specialise in Business Intelligence products and services - so anything to do with database reporting, analysis of data, data mining, that type of thing. I guess I've stayed in these areas because I know these types of technologies really thoroughly. 


I have tended to be more successful in dealing with larger scale technology roll outs - you know, where the software company develops a new release of their product and the user base or reseller/partner channel needs to be trained.


I seem to have been designing, building and delivering courseware for over 15 years in these two sectors - though it feels like a lot less than that - as there is always something new to learn that keeps things fresh...

I'm working in Leeds, UK as an eLearning Specialist for a languages company. It's mostly internal work - creating compliance training, onboarding materials etc, but I get involved in some pretty exciting projects too. We have no LMS, so I've created a solution using articulate that reports from  a presentation via asp to a database. When I started here, there was no eLearning, and now, nearly 2 years later, we have an eLearning suite full of useful content for the business on an internal HR website, which I also built.


We get busier by the day, so I constantly try t reinvent myself, which is why my solutions these days comprise of a mixture of Articulate, Flash, Web resources, video and Captivate for systems training.


Never a dull moment in the world of L&D! People think I just play all day!!

Hi Wera,


That's weird, I just read your intro and laughed because I also work for a health and safety association whose clients are educators, healthcare workers and municipal employees and I'm in Toronto.  I'm with PSHSA, who are you with?

Where in Thailand, Paul? I was in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and down on Samui near the end of last year - just missed the King's birthday.


i work for a firm that provides best practices research and advisory services to businesses worldwide. The e-learning that I create is largely focused on management and practitioners in the human resources, talent management, and learning and development sectors.

Hi all,


I'm in Antwerp, Belgium (that's in Europe) and I work for a shipping company called Safmarine Container Lines.

In 2010 we implemented a completely new CRM system for our 720 sales staff in 105 countries world wide.  Since we wanted everyone to be trained as quickly as possible, we opted for a functional eLearning course which was followed by coaching on the job.  It worked out very well because I only had to retrain 3 out of 105 countries   And this mostly thanks to Tom Kuhlman and his Rapid Elearning.

I work for Lockheed Martin as an eLearning developer in the homeland security arena. My immediate group consists of myself and 2 other eLearning developers, and a team of a dozen or so instructional designers. More than half of the IDs focus on ILT, and my role when working with them is mainly graphic design and putting together PowerPoint templates. The other half of the group work on designing online courseware... It's a fun and very fast-paced team, and we work on many high-profile projects. Oh, and I'm a virtual employee, residing in Virginia Beach. Most of my team is in Washington DC.
