JD Dillon is the LearnGeek.

I'm JD, the founder and principal at LearnGeek, an insights and advisory group focused on helping organizations improve their learning ecosystems, enable their employees and achieve their business goals. 

For the past 20+ years, I have worked in operations and talent development with some of the world's most dynamic organizations, including The Walt Disney Company, KaplanBrambles, and AMC Theatres. Today, in addition to my work with LearnGeek, I'm the Chief Learning Architect with Canadian learning technology company Axonify, where I collaborate with an award-winning team to build technology, content and services that enable frontline employees around the world do their best work every day.
