Far and foremost, Erika’s 20+ years of experience working with corporate technology companies enabled her to shape products and services for worldwide scalability. Innovation on learning usually happens in silos, and Erika wants to empower educators to scale it. The corporate experience also gave her a clear understanding of large organizations’ challenges to motivate employees, foster creativity, and to create a long-lasting relationship with customers and partners, regardless of their location on earth. Corporations benefit from the same principles identified in her work, as they implement simple learning and skill development processes that contribute to individuals’ personal growth, intrinsic motivation, and life purpose. Consequently, individual achievement results in the organization’s success.
