A new way to learn and work
If you have been repeatedly using age-old traditional methods of learning and development, you are holding back your people and your business from realizing its competitiveness and success. Traditional ways do not move your "cheese." What you need are fresh and brand new ideas to catapult and pivot your people and business to faster, better, affordable ways to train, retain and drive performance at work.

Ryan Seratt, a digital age learning leader at Ryan Seratt Consulting, has a passion for delivering highly effective training programs using a combination of technology, modern learning methods, and coaching to prepare students to prosper in today’s demanding work environments. His approach to training was developed after observing that workers are often overwhelmed by the speed of business where the complexity of products and services constantly increase to compete in the digital and global markets. In his view, a modern learning program must include continuous learning to enable people to successfully perform their roles.
Ryan has over 20 years of experience creating training programs and leading change for organizations in the telecom, finance, retail, and healthcare industries.
His significant global expertise includes collaborating with partners organizations to drive training standards as well as implementing robust skill coaching programs to surpass quality standards in call centers located in the United States as well as South Africa, India, Philippines, and the Dominican Republic.
Before founding Ryan Seratt Consulting, Ryan served as the director of enterprise learning for SCL Health where he championed the transformation of training to a modern learning ecosystem. That program consists of instructor-led training, virtual training, eLearning, mobile and a searchable knowledge base to better provide the right training at the right time to the hospital staff.
