Clive Shepherd

Until my retirement in 2020, I was a workplace learning consultant, writer and speaker, working with a broad range of public and private sector organisations internationally, helping them to build capability and to transform workplace learning through the effective integration of formal, informal, on-demand and experiential learning.

I established my interest in interactive media while Director, Training and Creative Services for American Express in EMEA. I went on to co-found Epic (no Leo), one of the major producers of custom digital learning content.

For many years I have been regarded as an expert in workplace learning and development, with hundreds of published articles to my name. I am the author of a number of books, including The Blended Learning Cookbook, The New Learning Architect and Digital Learning Content: A Designer’s Guide. I have spoken regularly at major international conferences and until recently contributed regularly to my blog, Clive on Learning. I have designed and delivered programmes on digital and blended learning for the Chartered Institute in Personnel and Development, for whom I was a member of their L&D Advisory Group.

I was recognised for my Outstanding Contribution to the Training Industry at the World of Learning Conference in 2004 and for four years I was Chair of the eLearning Network.

In January 2015 I released More Than Blended Learning, the culmination of ten years of enquiry and practical application.

I was a Founding Director of Skills Journey (formerly The More Than Blended Learning Company), which has launched a comprehensive curriculum of online CPD courses for learning professionals.

My new project is Instrumentality, which I describe as a ‘mad musical adventure’. Following my retirement from learning and development, I have the time to devote to my first passion, music composition.
