Vicky strongly believe that a learning system is one of three key enablers to bring and sustain change in and organization; but is not a standalone solution. She am excited when working with an organization that understands this and works to ensure the learning event will be successful by looking at how it fits into the big picture. The members are our clients and need to be provided resources, events, and conversations that are holistic in nature and that help them be well rounded professionals who also see the big picture.
