empowering people to learn, innovate and perform.

 


Hello and welcome

My name’s Arun, I’m an experienced learning & performance professional, having developed solutions for some of Australia’s largest companies.

I was recognised by the AITD as Australia’s Learning Professional of the Year in 2017 and I’ve developed an international reputation, particularly for my work in enabling learning agility and using design thinking to co-design innovative performance solutions.

I have broad experience in emerging technologies and am an unashamed geek when it comes to learning science, cognitive psychology, behavioural economics, marketing and anything that provides insights into how people think, behave and change. Importantly, I’m adept at translating my diverse tech and geek knowledge into impactful strategies.

Interested in working with me? Please reach out and let’s chat.

Thanks,
Arun

Testimonials

Arun is a learning guru!
Arun cannot only speak to the science of learning he can also apply this knowledge to build world class learning solutions.
I would recommend Arun to any organisation

Beth Hall

COTTON ON, Head of Group Uni.

“Arun is a true business partner and thought leader in learning, workforce capability future proofing and innovative learning design solutions that transforms the employee experience.
He is my “go to guy” for creative problem solving, human centred design practices in learning design, strategy development and presenting.
As an intelligent, brave and thought-provoking professional, Arun’s work shifts the dial from how it has always been done, to how needs to be done to lead an organisation into the future.”

Kathy Farkas

BUPA, Head of Learning

Arun is one of those people at the leading edge of the ‘new world’ of learning. He brings his understanding of technology, learning and neuroscience to design new ways to exploit learning in the daily workflow.
His deep understanding of what makes learning and performance ‘tick’ and his natural creativity is obvious to anyone who knows him.
I would thoroughly recommend Arun’s expertise in this domain.”

Charles Jennings

70:20:10 INSTITUTE, Co-Founder.

“Having initially embraced 70/20/10 as a framework for blended learning design, Arun has taken this to a new level with the adaption of a design thinking approach to learning programs which is shifting the needle from delivering learning outcomes to performance outcomes.
In this regard Arun is rightly being recognised as a global thought leader.”

Simon Hann

CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS ANZ, Group Executive, Education & Learning.

“Arun’s ability, and courage to ask the difficult questions to unearth the real problems, coupled with his creative approach to designing a solution, means the end product always results in a better learner experience and performance outcome.
Arun is a pleasure to work with and I always walk away from every conversations having learned something new. I have no hesitation in recommending Arun if you are looking for an innovative and skilled learning professional to partner with.”

Julie Owens

ANZ, Head of Conduct Centre of Excellence

“Arun is a pragmatic learning professional who challenges the status quo and encourages different ways of thinking in a holistic manner and still pays attention to minor details.
Arun is known as a thought leader and personable – two qualities that define him completely.
As a creative thinker who possesses a can-do attitude, Arun is a pleasure to work with. I recommend him for a any learning intervention at any organisation that chooses to take benefit from his diverse skills.”
