With 30 years experience in L&D, Krystyna has been training trainers, facilitators and subject matter experts as well as line managers since 2008. Noticing a lack of experience and skill in the area of needs analysis drove her to write her book 'How to Not Waste Your Money on Training'. In it she applies all of her knowledge and skills from the last 30 years to gently guide people to a more data driven, focused approach to L&D.
Krystyna is a consummate professional with a passion for helping people perform better through learning. She is a member of the CIPD and has delivered professional CIPD L&D qualifications. She is also a fellow of the Learning and Performance Institute.
With her background as an engineer, Krystyna applies the same process thinking to L&D as she did in her former career. Having moved from engineering to IT training, she spent years learning her craft firstly for IBM and later as a freelance IT trainer. This gave her great insight into how to make dry and technical training more dynamic and impactful.
A move into soft skills training in 2003 led Krystyna to research accelerated learning. She was particularly drawn to how learning could become more engaging as well as impactful. A frustration with the many models and theories within accelerated learning prompted her to create a signature system ‘Five Secrets of Accelerated Learning’, which simplifies all relevant theories and models for those curious about accelerating learning through their organisations.
Krystyna’s focus is always on achieving business results in a creative and inspiring way. Through Five Secrets, she helps people make this structured and simple. 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 to elevate the L&D profession. Finding the right data to inform good decision-making is a must in her eyes.
