Life is too short to sit through ordinary and boring eLearning.

We’ve all been there. We’ve sat through training videos and click-through slides that have little to do with our day-to-day tasks. You might have one person willing to apply what they’ve learned. But most either might try and fail or won’t try at all and tell everyone why this training won’t work.

“Jim Brown has an amazing talent for converting a curriculum designed for in-person training to an online format that is comprehensive, interactive, and engaging.
