Alliance Learning is a one-stop-shop for solutions. We create learning solutions to help clients keep on top of their skills development and stay ahead of the learning curve in their respective industries. We provide clients with the opportunity to create custom-built, learner centered e-learning courses for their employees and members. From post-course "boosting" to interactive on-line courses for the asynchronous environment and hybrid projects that include Augmented and Virtual Reality solutions, the Alliance Learning team stays ahead of the curve and brings innovative solutions to their clients.
We have a well connected team of professional trainers, consultants, facilitators and coaches and when a project requires a Subject Matter Expert in an area of expertise that is not our own, we are not hesitate to engage other members of the Global Speakers’ Federation in order to supply your project with the resource people it needs in order to be successful.

Carrie Walker-Boyd, Chief Learning Officer
Carrie is first and foremost a problem-solver. With almost 20 years in the training and education field, and a diploma in Adult Education from St. Francis Xavier, her key goal is to find the right solution to ensure a successful end result for organizations. When it comes to training, she can skillfully manage and conduct the entire learning process, beginning with needs analysis, learning design, development and delivery and finally evaluation. She will analyze the core of the issue and design anything from the smallest online micro-course, to a full learner development pathway using a blended learning approach, to meet the overall learning objectives.
Carrie has worked for private, public, and member organizations and knows open communication with all stakeholders is the key to getting the job done. She is skilled at managing projects that have many moving pieces, changing objectives, and fluctuating budgets. She works effectively with SME’s to pull out just the right information needed to complete the job and is agile enough to adapt to changing on the fly when needed, without losing sight of the overall objectives. Carrie has led the training component of several large-scale projects including launching a custom version of Moodle LMS and creating a suite of Articulate Storyline courses for a member organization; designing, launching and evaluating a successful 6-week blended-learning onboarding program; and developing training design and delivery standards for a 6,000 person agency. Whether it’s mapping out an entire learning pathway, or getting into the nitty gritty of programming an e-learning module, Carrie works, and loves it all.
In the training field, there is not a one-size-fits all solution, which is why we are skilled at working with several tools, strategies and processes to ensure we are delivering organizations what they really need based on the target audience’s needs, and not just what is new and in style at the moment.
