LEO Learning designs engaging learning for a wide range of global clients. If your mental model for learning is all-day courses, massive PowerPoints, chalk-and-talk and click-next e-learning – that’s not us. We design programmes that challenge learners to think differently, are learner-centric, performance-focused and results-driven. Generally speaking, great stories make great learning experiences, but how we tell those stories is wide open for creative development.
