Enploy, a Birmingham based Learning & Development Consultancy has strengthened its team with the hire of entrepreneurial heavyweight John Cooke.
John has been instrumental in the success of a number of significant skills-based learning and development software solutions. These include leading on Microsoft’s first Global Learning Portal, launching and exiting an International skills and competency software company and latterly heading up Business Development in the UK and Ireland for Vistage – one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive executive coaching organisations.
John joins Enploy on the back of a number of new business wins – most notably Gymshark where Enploy is creating a bespoke, blended learning and development programme for their entire Customer Support Team. This programme has been crafted to not only develop employee’s mindsets but also to help them grow as a high-performing team, to think like the customer and to deal with challenging situations.
John will be helping Enploy’s strategic growth with a focus on partnership development and the integration of coaching within Enploy’s suite of complimentary L&D solutions.
In describing his appointment, John commented, “I am delighted to be joining Enploy as I admire the team and its focus on developing mindset as well as business skills for clients. Enploy started by allowing organisations to assess and develop the Entrepreneurial skills of their people – helping them to become more agile, innovative and hire, retain and engage staff better. As Enploy continues to grow, it is now developing this same approach into other key skill areas needed to become competitive and relevant in today’s world.”
Jon Allen, MD commented “We’re delighted to have found an exec with not only the skills & knowledge but also the entrepreneurial flair that’s so important to us as a company. We’re fortunate to be able to benefit from John’s knowledge, skill and character as we look to expand our footprint and product offering within the L&D and HRTech landscape.”
