About Me-Bio
2015 Recipient of the LearnX Gold Award for Rapid Authoring.

I've designed innovative training interventions using a wide spectrum of facilitation techniques. From designing and facilitating instructor-led training both in the classroom and over the web, to creating self-paced training that blends learner-led activities with eLearning modules, my style focuses on interactivity, engagement, and a focus on overcoming the performance gap uncovered by my analysis.

I am a proven designer of innovative learning interventions that has helped transition a week-long new hire classroom program to a curriculum that blends Articulate authored eLearning modules and WebEx seminars. I have used Captivate to design eLearning courses that have reduced or eliminated the need for facilitator-led systems training. Earlier training interventions have empowered a start-up department to complete 50 successful files within the first month and have reduced talk time by 60% within the call center, and prepared corporate leaders to successfully train their employees to roll-out an innovative new presentation program.

Service Description
Paul Venderley joined ASTD-Orange County because someone was networking, and had cued him into a vibrant organization devoted to the professional development of trainers just like him. He admits to treating his professional membership as he treats his gym membership for a few years, but a call to action from the VP of Communications activated his membership in 2005, and he hasn't looked back since then.

Paul has viewed ASTD-Orange County as the keystone for his professional development, and has advocated using Chapter resources as a source of information for those seeking to further themselves in this vibrant career. However, he's realized that learning how to improve one's training skills isn't enough to maintain the viability of a professional organization -- we must do more, especially in a day where the catch-phrase is: "In today's economy..."

Paul seeks to expand the viability of our professional network to create opportunities for our members to practice what they learn -- to do something that adds to their resume through experience and measurable accomplishment. There's a lot this chapter has to offer each one of us. Ask one of us to learn what that is!
