Lynn Lewis is an author and learning and performance consultant who fell onto this path in life by accident. Starting her career in broadcast journalism and newswriting, she taught those subjects at the University of Pittsburgh-Bradford. During this experience, she realized that she was meant to be a facilitator and consultant when she grew up. Since that time, she has been a corporate trainer, training manager, director of project management and held two vice president positions—one where she was responsible for building a corporate university and the other where she was responsible for building a performance solutions consulting practice and project management office (PMO). After these experiences, she found that the work she loved best was working as a consultant, strategizing with clients, managing projects, designing and developing learning solutions, and helping to mentor and develop these skills in others. Lynn is a certified project management professional (PMP), and a certified professional and learning and performance (CPLP). She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from St. Bonaventure University in New York. Lynn is the author of several books: Ten Steps to Successful Meetings and Ten Steps to Successful Presentations. She also co-authored the ASTD Learning System (a series of 10 books used to study for the CPLP credential). She facilitates the following programs for ATD: CPLP Study Prep Workshop Consulting Skills Certificate Project Management for Learning Professionals Emotional Intelligence for Improved Decision Making She is an independent consultant and works with organizations across many different industries—especially pharmaceutical/biotech, insurance and financial services.
