I help organisations to transform Learning and Development (L&D), significantly increasing impact on performance and business outcomes.  I do this by:

  • Mentoring L&D leaders to create and implement a strategy and operating model that is aligned to business strategy.
  • Evaluating the capability of L&D teams, creating development pathways, and delivering programs to build skills required by a modern L&D function.
  • Facilitating and coaching L&D teams to create and implement social and collaborative learning initiatives, including Communities of Practice.
  • Speaking at conferences and events for industry, professional associations and organisations.

I am based in Sydney, Australia – and thanks to the power of technology can work with L&D leaders and teams around the globe.  Contact me at Michelle@michelleockers.com to discuss how I could help you build a high impact L&D function.

I am currently supporting Qantas to transform their Learning and Development function.  It’s a complex, high-impact role that builds upon my experience setting up and leading Coca-Cola Amatil’s (CCA) Supply Chain Technical Academy.  Under my leadership the CCA team was highly commended in the Australian Institute of Training and Development’s (AITD) National Excellence Awards for Best Use of Blended Learning (2013) and Best Use of Social / Collaborative Learning (2015).

My industry experience also includes military aviation, manufacturing, FMCG, financial services, energy and telecommunications.  You can read more about my professional experience in my LinkedIn profile.

I advocate Working Out Loud (WOL) and Personal Knowledge Mastery (PKM) as core professional development practices. These practices have enabled me to build a powerful global network and stay abreast of developments in modern workplace learning.  I make my work visible via my Working Out Loud page, on Twitter and through speaking engagements.  The more L&D people who Work Out Loud, the better our practices as a profession become, and the higher impact we have on our organisations and the people who work in them.  I run Working Out Loud Circles for L&D practitioners.

My contribution to the L&D profession was recognised by the AITD who named me as a finalist in the 2015 Learning and Development Professional of the Year.  I have also been on the list of Corporate eLearning movers and shakers since 2014, appearing at No. 56 globally in 2016.
