Professional Experience

About Me-Bio
Orange County talent development leader whose portfolio includes webinar, leader-led, and blended learning programs. 2015 Recipient of the LearnX Impact Awards for eLearning Design - Rapid Authoring.

As an instructional designer, I utilize both asynchronous and synchronous delivery methods to create engaging training programs; my style focuses on interactivity, engagement, and overcoming the performance gap(s) uncovered by my analysis. My training portfolio spans a broad spectrum of topics -- from sales training to internal control to performance management and leadership.
As a talent development leader, I coach and develop other talent development professionals in best practices for eLearning and social learning. I expose my local talent development community to new ideas and techniques for blended learning, web training, and more.

My design toolkit includes both Articulate Storyline and Adobe Captivate, WebEx Training Center and GoTo Training. I am comfortable working within the Adobe Creative Cloud, including Photoshop, Illustrator and PremierePro, and am proficient in most Microsoft Office products.

I am looking for an opportunity to lead and engage performers through blended, active learning interventions with an organization committed to the ongoing development of its employees.

Proficient in:
Adobe Captivate, Articulate Studio, Articulate Storyline. WebEx, GoToTraining, Adobe Creative Cloud (specifically Photoshop, Illustrator, PremierePro)

Honors received:

Service Description
Paul Venderley joined ASTD-Orange County because someone was networking, and had cued him into a vibrant organization devoted to the professional development of trainers just like him. He admits to treating his professional membership as he treats his gym membership for a few years, but a call to action from the VP of Communications activated his membership in 2005, and he hasn't looked back since then.

Paul has viewed ASTD-Orange County as the keystone for his professional development, and has advocated using Chapter resources as a source of information for those seeking to further themselves in this vibrant career. However, he's realized that learning how to improve one's training skills isn't enough to maintain the viability of a professional organization -- we must do more, especially in a day where the catch-phrase is: "In today's economy..."

Paul seeks to expand the viability of our professional network to create opportunities for our members to practice what they learn -- to do something that adds to their resume through experience and measurable accomplishment. There's a lot this chapter has to offer each one of us. Ask one of us to learn what that is!

Roles served:
* Vice President, Programs (2018)
* Leader, Training and Techology SIG (2017 - present)
* Chapter President (2010)
