Become an Expert for Training Evaluation:
You are an L&D professional who doesn’t just want to know whether your participants enjoyed the training. You want to evaluate the true impact of your training to be able to make systematic and strategic decisions that support your organization’s goals.

Become an Expert for Transfer Success:
You are an HRD professional, L&D consultant, training designer or trainer who believes that transfer effectiveness is not only a catchword, but a successfully lived aspiration for professional development. You know the obstacles of training transfer from your own experience, and you want to do something about it. You want to take the training in your company and your industry to a new level.

Become an Expert for Learner-Centered Design:
You are a trainer, facilitator, educator and/or instructional designer looking for fresh non-boring and effective ideas to truly engage your learners in a face to face and/or virtual classroom. You could benefit from a simple process / blueprint to create effective session outlines.

I combine my entrepreneurial spirit with my close to 20 years of experience in L&D to help build memorable & results-based learning experiences. In my roles as Senior Transfer Enabler at the Institute for Transfer Effectiveness and Founder of Going Beyond Training, I am passionate about making transfer happen. I apply strong business acumen, rich practical experience across cultures & a deep understanding of what makes learning stick to support my clients in being more strategic in their L&D initiatives. 

Inspired by my original education focus and the 20 years of living and working abroad, I enjoy a “2nd career” working as a trainer, consultant and university lecturer in the field of Intercultural Communication, Virtual Collaboration, Corporate Culture, Leadership, DEI, Trust and Negotiation.

Transfer Designer Certification

After years of navigating the ever-evolving landscape of software education, I found myself searching for a training solution that truly understood the nuanced needs of learners.
Despite the proliferation of online programs, I struggled to find one that aligned with my expectations until I connected with Melanie. Having known her from a previous business encounter, I reached out to her in hopes of finding a solution.
That’s when she introduced me to the Transfer Designer Certification. Completing the live sessions with Melanie was a game-changer.

Backed by extensive research curated by Ina Weinbauer-Heidel, the program not only broadened my understanding of the learning space but also provided practical strategies for implementation and Melanie did a great job as Mr Miller!.

Each session delved into essential aspects like transfer planning, motivation, and content relevance, offering insights that surpassed my expectations. What truly sets this program apart is its commitment to accessibility and knowledge sharing. Unlike many others, it provides lifetime access to a comprehensive repository of content, enriching the learning experience even beyond the live sessions.

I wholeheartedly endorse this program to anyone seeking to deepen their expertise in the learning/training domain. The insights gained from exploring each lever are invaluable for anyone in other domains looking to make a meaningful impact on their audience.
