Our very own CEO, Bridgitte Alomes, had the pleasure of being invited on Dr. Robert Dillon’s podcast, ‘Help Me Understand’, where he ‘interviews a range of fans, learners, and experts surrounding their passions – inviting a discussion about ideas and concepts that you may have never considered before.’ As Bridgitte and Robert hold similar values and a deep commitment to creating better learning outcomes, this conversation between two passionate individuals makes for great listening.
