Title: Lead, Learning & Performance
Company: Hoffmann-La Roche LTD.
What is your biggest achievement to date — personal or professional?
I have been a certified member since 2001. The CTDP certification along with continued lifelong learning has strengthened my knowledge and confidence to tackle large scale projects both locally in Canada and Globally. I have recently completed an intense project to develop and implement a learning curriculum for our scientific and medical staff at our pharmaceutical company. This project involved developing a consistent approach to onboarding, learning library resources, knowledge assessments and a scientific fluency assessment. Ultimately, we have a process and to ensure our medical team is 'qualified' to be in challenging complex dialogues with health care professionals. This project also involved the creation of 5 e-learning modules to support communication skills of our medics across the globe. Designed to maximize talent, supplement face-face training with easy to access, short e-learning, available to all customer facing roles. The real added features of these modules included:
What do you like most about your current role?
- Role plays, and real cases built in for learner engagement
- Right visual and instructional design approach
- Create a content hierarchy by determining what is "need to know" vs "nice to know"
- Streamline and future-proof the learning content development process; from storyboard to technical build- easy to localize for other languages, easy to update
I work in a highly scientific organization. I have a scientific background. What I love about my role is the ability to combine science with the art of learning. There is a hugely creative, non-linear component to helping senior leaders articulate and co-create solutions that drive performance and transform the organization from where we are today to where we need to be tomorrow. The Pharmaceutical industry is rapidly transforming. We need to determine what capabilities are required to understand the patient experience, access and influence abroad array of external health care stakeholders. Additionally, I feel I can contribute significantly to my organization and ultimately to the health of Canadians. It is a great feeling to know that I am helping to transform clinical practice.
If I am not at work I am...
Right now I am on an extended business trip to Switzerland for several months. Therefore, I am outdoors hiking, touring around Europe, taking in the amazing sights and cultural experiences.
In Canada, I spend as much of my summer as I can kayaking, biking, and hiking with my family!
