Hi! I'm JD - founder of LearnGeek. I believe everyone - regardless of role, tenure, location or background - deserves a chance to do their best. So I help organizations rethink how they enable employees in the modern workplace.
Over the past 20 years, I've worked with some of the world's most dynamic brands, including Disney, Kaplan, AMC and Axonify. Today, I'm the world's foremost expert on frontline learning and engagement as well as a prolific author and speaker in the global HR and L&D communities. My research focuses on high-impact learning and enablement practices, including microlearning, knowledge sharing, ecosystem strategy, adaptive learning, digital integration, knowledge sharing and AI-powered solutions.
"JD simplifies the complex to make learning accessible to anyone who wants it."
Read my book.
The Modern Learning Ecosystem - A New Mindset for the Ever-Changing Workplace is my practical, personal, humorous take on the role L&D must play in building disruption-ready organizations.
This isn't just an L&D book. This is my story - how I learned to help organizations navigate nonstop workplace change during my 20+ years in operations and talent development with companies like Disney, Kaplan, AMC and Axonify.
The Modern Learning Ecosystem is available now anywhere awesome business books are sold. Grab your copy today!
"JD is a snarky oracle. He can uncover the truth of a situation in a unique and undeniable way."
Watch my talk show.
In The Know is my 25-minute LinkedIn Live show that explores the biggest topics in workplace learning and enablement.
Join me every other Wednesday for insightful conversations with the smartest people in L&D, HR and EX. ITK is shorter than your next meeting, half as long as that other webinar and a whole lot more fun!
"In my 30 years in L&D, that was the best presentation of ideas I've ever seen."
