Our Favorite Client Endorsements

What do clients say about our lead analyst, John Leh, and the value of guidance they receive from Talented Learning?

I have had the privilege of knowing John for many years now. And, over the course of those years, I have referred many of my association clients who were seeking agnostic and expert level knowledge on Learning Management Systems (LMS) in the market. He is terrific resource. I specifically admire his valuable content, dedication to the process, and continued commitment to help others procure the best LMS fit.

One doesn’t have to know John long before realizing that he has a great knack and tact on how to educate executives on the processes that are important and the learning technology required to meet their mission. For those reasons, along with his integrity, I recommend him to any organization (nonprofit, association, or software vendor) that needs help defining and mapping out their learning (LMS) technology strategy. He is worth every dollar and more!

John has become my go-to expert on learning management systems. He knows the landscape better than anyone and is a delight to work with. Professional, passionate, and an excellent communicator. I’ve referred him to two of my clients thus far and both have followed up with me saying how appreciative they were for the introductions. I cannot recommend John and his Talented Learning group enough.

John knows his stuff. His provides top-notch information for anyone looking to gear-up with a LMS. His deep knowledge and experience in the industry is evident in the way he’s able to provide crisp and concise feedback. Here on out, he’ll be my go to guy for all things LMS. Save yourself time, money, and headache – give John a shout if you’re in the market to consider LMS.

We are very glad we hired John as our LMS selection consultant. Initially, we had identified a learning system solution that we were considering licensing. To assess the solution for fit, we hired John to do an independent gap analysis. After defining our requirements, John found that although the solution “could” work for us, there were better, more cost-effective direct matches in the industry.

We were under time constraints and we worked with John to conduct a fast-paced RFP and use case demonstration process to select a new partner. We ended up choosing one of John’s recommendation and signed a contract a week ahead of schedule. There are so many potential solutions out there and John’s knowledge and expertise ensured we stayed on schedule, focused our search on a narrowed-down group of candidates, and selected a solution that met our needs.

I highly recommend John for any organization that wants expert help and guidance in selecting learning technologies. He makes the process easy, digestible, and efficient!

John was a great partner in our LMS and content partner selection process. Right from the start, John adapted to our unique needs and worked alongside our team providing guidance, process and advice at every stage of the process. John systematically helped us define and consolidate the diverse requirements of our stakeholder groups, recommended qualified vendor solutions and then led us through a professional evaluation and selection process. I’d recommend working with John for any organization looking to buy and deploy enterprise learning technology.

We worked with John when looking for someone with LMS experience to complete an audit on the client services areas of our site. John’s review was thorough and full of insights we’ve referenced as we’ve upgrade our systems. I’ve followed John’s LMS thought leadership on online since then. Great to work with.

John brought the best research and advice to our vendor search. With his help we pre-qualified several excellent prospects and found our match right on time. I am so glad we engaged him!

We worked with John Leh to find a new Learning Management System for a medical specialty society. I highly recommend partnering with John to help navigate all the complexities of identifying the best solution. John expertly guided all the various stakeholders in documenting the salient requirements and identified four vendors who were exquisitely positioned to meet our requirements.

Our company hired John/Talented Learning to help us find a learning marketplace and delivery technology. John saved us a tremendous amount of time in refining our requirements, developing the formal proposal and selecting the right vendors to participate in the selection process. John was able to identify a provider not on our radar previously but ended up being a perfect match.

At the end of the day, John helped us deliver a better project for less time and money.

I heard Connie Malamed interview John on the eLearning Coach Podcast and reached out to John for advice on our ongoing LMS selection process. John asked about and listened to our challenges, current status and goals and provided practical and sound advice to get us to a decision point for our new LMS. It’s a huge weight off our shoulders to make the choice and have a solid justification. Thank you John!

I approached John to help provide direction and focus for where to start our search for the right LMS solution! With so many options on the market, it’s hard to know where to get started!! John looked over our business requirements and made some great suggestions and ultimately pointed us in the right direction!! A wonderful, kindhearted and knowledgeable person…thank you John!

My organization recently acquired a learning management system and John’s expertise was invaluable throughout the process. He spent considerable time with the internal team interviewing stakeholders to understand our business model, strategic goals and timeline. Utilizing that information and his extensive knowledge in the LMS space, he compiled a shortlist of optimal LMS providers to engage in a RFP.

John managed the RFP process from start to finish, including writing the document with input from the internal team, scheduling demos, and coordinating with the finalists and fielding their questions.

We were working under tight deadlines and John kept everything running smoothly and steered us in the right direction when we needed professional guidance. He was with us every step of the way! We are currently going through implementation and are very satisfied with our decision. John helped us identify not only the best LMS for our needs, but also because of the time he took to understand and articulate our business goals through the RFP process, we also have a strong business partner in our LMS vendor.

I highly recommend John to anyone who needs help navigating the LMS landscape!

John’s knowledge and strategic insight into the corporate training market is very difficult to find. His passion for the industry is infectious. John was a dream to work with and he felt more like a member of the team than a consultant. He genuinely cared about our success and even helped us find our first few clients. I can’t speak highly enough of John’s work and would highly recommend his services.

John Leh is the consummate professional with an unmatched knowledge of Learning Management Systems that is both wide and deep. His ability to work with a variety of professionals and personalities is a significant strength. John communicates openly and honestly with all team members and quickly puts people at ease in a group setting.
