Donald H Taylor
Donald H Taylor began his career in technology and training in the early 1980s. His experience since then ranges from training design and delivery to managing director and vice-president positions. Now based in London, he travels regularly internationally to consult and speak about workplace learning and associated technologies.
Donald believes effective workplace learning is best supported by understanding business needs and by engaging with employees, and that it should not be driven by the feature sets of tools and technologies.
He is Chairman of both the Learning Technologies Conference and the Learning and Performance Institute, sits on several editorial boards, and is editor of Inside Learning Technologies magazine.
The 2007 recipient of the Colin Corder award for services to training, he is a graduate of Oxford University and has an honorary doctorate from Middlesex University in recognition of his contribution towards the professionalization of workplace learning and development.
