Until joining LL, Rich led national and international L&D functions and was a consultant for Mobile Telecom Networks (MTN Nigeria) and Orange (Thailand).

Since 2003 he has been engaged as an independent consultant helping training organisations to develop new markets, products and services and leading strategic learning initiatives.

Focusing on learning strategy and development; business impact; managerial coaching and leadership development; project management; change management; emotional resilience; dysfunctional team repair and CPD programmes, Glynn‘s experience embraces the full learning and development (L&D) life cycle through to assessment and evaluation. He has developed or managed over 400 courses covering induction to executive leadership, principally in e-learning or blended learning formats.

Glynn has successfully driven strategic L&D programmes for clients in the UK, Europe, USA, Middle East and South Africa.

• Gillian Broadhead: now with LL as an Organisational Effectiveness Consultant having previously worked in the L&D functions of BT and Royal Mail and, lately, as a learning consultant to small and medium sized (SME) businesses. Gillian has an in-depth knowledge of designing learning paths that support the development and performance of employees, aligning learning to the operational and strategic demands of business as well as using technology and blended learning options to meet the challenges faced by organisations undergoing major change.

Mark Pittaway, LL’s CEO, commented: "The appointment of Glynn, Rich and Gillian to Learning Light’s Professional Services team will help drive the business forward. Between them, they have a wealth of experience in the learning sector and widespread sector knowledge that will prove invaluable to organisations striving to improve business performance through learning technologies and learning and development."
