“Bryan enabled our organization to make significant progress extremely quickly in revising our e-learning technology strategy. He is a fountain of information and balances his experience handily with his clients' internal needs.” Vice President, American Express Learning Network.
“We engaged Bryan for his LMS expertise at various stages of our vendor selection process. Bryan's expertise is deep, and he provided us with invaluable feedback and advice in a very time- and cost-efficient manner. We particularly appreciated Bryan's consulting style. He was genuine, never self-promoting, and always demonstrated high integrity.” Vice President of Learning Technology, BankOne.
"We engaged Chapman Alliance for assistance in selecting a learning management system. Christine Duckworth worked with us through the entire process. She facilitated a cross-departmental conversation around the requirements for an LMS. She took all of that information and compiled it into an RFP for vendors. Finally, she walked through the vendor selection process with us. Her contributions were priceless. She provided insight from other selection processes. She was patient (yet firm when needed) during the evaluation process. Her insight into the differences between the vendors and what was out of scope of the project, kept us on task and on budget. Christine was an outstanding resource, not just to the training department but to the organization as a whole. I will NOT go through another LMS selection process without her." Vice President of Training, VCA Antech
"Chapman Alliance's 5-step method for choosing enterprise learning technologies--including 20 questions to short list technologies, use case development, scripted demos, RFP requests and finally side-by-side comparisons of proposals--was nothing short of phenomenal! It made our decision process clear and concise. We knew that we would be getting a tool that fit our needs and budget. The whole process worked so well that people around here talk about it being "the tightest RFP process we've seen in years." Director, Licensing Engineering, Dolby Laboratories
"Sue Hall served as our Project Manager during our implementation of Plateau LMS. During this 15 month process she was a critical member of our team. She brings exceptional skills and it very beneficial to have someone with both project management as well as LMS expertise. We found that she was able to help in many different capacities because of the breadth of her background; including helping us think through how to sunset older applications, how to successfully migrate thousands of historical records and even how to establish new e-Learning guidelines. Sue was able to coordinate development tasks an ensure milestones were met, as well as get deeply involved in day-to-day go-live requirements. She was much more than just a project manager; she was also a technical expert as well as a great bridge between the internal team and the vendor. She is very professional and adept at working with diverse stakeholders, which at times can have conflicting demands. She has an open and supporting communication style which fostered good working relationships within the team, as well as to the external vendor. Overall, Sue was a great asset to the project and critical to getting our LMS system live and well adopted." Senior Director, Employee Development & Rewards, Gilead Sciences

"Bryan was initially engaged to conduct an optimization study of our LMS. He helped us effectively diagnose and solve problems, rather than symptoms. Everyone involved in the learning infrastructure analysis was at ease thanks to Bryan’s approach. He quickly built equity with members of IT, HR, Sales and R&D and as a result was able to more effectively diagnose our challenges from both business process and technical perspectives. As a result of Bryan’s work with Takeda, we have implemented a Learning Governance Council and are poised to begin a long overdue upgrade of our LMS. Thanks to his partnership Takeda is now ready to establish a sustainable learning infrastructure to support the needs of a growing, global pharmaceutical company." Training Manager, Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America.

"Bryan was a great asset to us when our organization was evaluating learning management solutions (LMS). We needed someone to help guide us through the evaluation and selection process for a learning solution in less than 3 months. Bryan's knowledge of the industry, his dedication to support us and his adaptability to the ever-changing environment were enormous assets to us. If it were not for his contributions, we would not have been able to select a solution in the aggressive time period dictated by the organization's senior management. I would definitely recommend Bryan for future opportunities." Vice President, Corporate Information Technology, American Red Cross
