Author and Learning Consultant Margie Meacham first became interested in helping people learn when she was a little girl struggling with learning to learn how to read. While she didn’t discover it until much later, Margie is dyslexic and was finding it hard to keep up with her classmates. Eventually, she figured out how her mind worked and graduated high school as her class valedictorian and summa cum laude from her Bachelor and Master’s level programs. Today, she teaches people how to design and deliver training that is compelling, memorable and immediately useful by applying the latest discoveries from the converging fields of learning science. The author of “Brain Matters: How to help anyone learn anything using neuroscience” believes that if you understand how the brain works you can become a better teacher, trainer, leader, spouse or parent and have more fun doing it.
Margie is the Chief Freedom Officer of Learningtogo and a recognized leader in the application of neuroscience and artificial intelligence to enhance learning and performance.. She is a recipient of the 100 Most Innovative in Learning award and a frequent keynote speaker at industry conferences. She teaches the ATD online course, Essentials of Brain-Based Learning and is a founding member of The Brain Ladies, a consortium of leading experts in applied cognitive science. You can connect with her on LinkedIn and Twitter or get in touch with us for more information. To have Margie speak at your next event or corporate retreat, please get in touch.
