Announcing…Lori Reed Learning Solutions

One of the things I’ve most enjoyed over the past few years is visiting other libraries and working with their trainers and staff. Beginning July 1st I’ll do this full time as Lori Reed Learning Solutions.

My passion has always been to help others grow. Now I’m ready to take this to the next level and work with libraries and other organizations to maximize their investment in staff development.

 

 

Lori Reed Learning Solutions will provide the following services:

  • Consulting
  • Creating Online Learning Communities
  • Custom 23 Things Programs
  • Group Facilitation
  • Keynote Speeches
  • Staff Development Days
  • Strategic Planning for Training
  • Training Design & Delivery
  • Webinars

 

 

 

 

While I am available to travel to deliver face-to-face training and keynote speeches, my primary focus will be delivering high quality live, online learning experiences. As a certified Synchronous Learning Expert, I’ve been trained in the art of online facilitation and course design by the masters in live online training at InSync Training.

Please contact me at lori@lorireed.com for a free consultation on how I can help your organization maximize your investment in learning and training. Be sure to check out and follow my Facebook page for additional updates!

I’d also like to thank the following people who have both inspired me and help me get started: Andrew Sanderbeck, People Connect Institute; Dick Handshaw, Handshaw, Inc.; John LeMasney, LeMasney Designs; Pat Wagner, Pattern Research, Inc.; Paul Signorelli, Paul Signorelli & Associates; Polly Farrington, P A Farrington Associates.

When the Going Gets Tough, the Staff Needs More Training

Be sure to check out the April 2010 issue of Computers in Libraries Magazine.

I wrote a feature about the new Learning Content Management System launching this month at the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library. The article tells the story from start to finish of my search for a solution to manage learning when we were faced with not only having less staff but also staff who are busier than ever as our usage soars.

I also want to thank Dick Handshaw and his team at Handshaw, Inc., who donated hosting and support for Luminex Suite for the Library. They have donated resources and precious time to get Lumenix not only up and running but fully integrated with our HR system, PeopleSoft. We need more people and businesses to step forward and help libraries the way Handshaw and his team have!
