Krys is a leading authority on accelerated learning and its application in the UK. She is also a complete anorak when it comes to setting clear and meaningful organisational outcomes. Starting her L&D career in IT training, she has been in the industry for over 30 years. Krys has been training trainers, facilitators, subject matter experts and line managers since 2008, through professional qualifications and her own workshops. She is founder of How to Accelerate Learning, a consultancy helping people to learn better to improve performance.

With her background as an engineer, she applies the same process thinking to L&D as she would have in her former career. Her focus is on achieving business results in a creative and inspiring way. A curious mind drives her to seek new innovations and consider how the latest research can be applied. She is a pragmatist with a thirst for learning and sharing with others, with the ultimate aim of helping others to perform better. Finding the right data to inform good decision making is a must in her eyes. To this end she has written a book called “How not to Waste Your Money on Training”.

There is nothing woolly about what Krys does as she invites you to gain clarity and focus in making lasting change within your organisation. You will leave her session feeling motivated, equipped and ready to rock your world!
