The multi-channel revolution has been transformational for the logistics and transportation industry
Consumer demand for faster, more integrated services has fuelled a sector-wide need for efficiency and economies of scale. The rise of online shopping and global trading is also increasing the need for fast movement of goods, making flexibility, agility, availability and productivity vital for the success of logistics and transportation firms.

In the US, there is a move towards ‘re-shoring’, or bringing outsourced logistics operations back into the country, triggering a period of rapid recruitment and upskilling, and a requirement for effective onboarding.

I fell into instructional design about eight years ago whilst working as an editor at Pearson. I moved to LEO and the cutting edge world of e-learning six years ago and I've loved almost every minute since. In my time here I've been involved with some truly innovative solutions and seen the birth and development of gomo. I moved into the Learning Consultant role in 2015 and have been enjoying the opportunity to be involved in earlier engagements with clients to help shape and define their approach to learning and learning solutions. I have also been developing a number of learning games and shaping how we do this at LEO in the future. Recently I have been involved with some exciting strategic programmes and blends offering great opportunities to challenge my own design work and to continue to innovate in the work we do with our clients.
