I can contribute my experience and education in adult training, instructional design, and project management to assist in designing and implementing training strategies, learning programs, and organizational development.
I have led in the design and development of over one-hundred training courses, aimed at creating effective and motivational e-learning experiences.
Sometimes a quick and easy explanation is necessary to help your audience clearly understand your products and ideas. I've developed dozens of explainer videos by pairing animations and voice-over talent with engaging stories.
I believe in defining the processes and activities of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources to achieve specific goals.

Emphasis in eLearning for adult learners.
What Tom was able to create fit our direction superbly. His understanding of coding principals allowed us to mix and match approaches to serve the different needs, all while maintaining our same tools. His portfolio should speak to the caliber of work by itself, but know that with his talents come a very personable, capable and innovative developer. Highly recommended!
I can say, without reservation, that the results Tom brought to our organization are tremendous. Not only as he able to successfully drive and manage the design process on many courses across various lines of business, he is always looking for new opportunities to make our training better.
Tom provided his unique skill set and the additional resources needed to get this certification training delivered ahead of schedule. Tom responded to all emails, calls, and requests for edits quickly and professionally. This was awesome given that some of these requests came during weekends or random times because of working with teams in different time zones.
Tom Washam is an excellent instructional designer. I have been on several teams with Tom, and he is able to always meet the client’s needs on time while creating stimulating instruction. I really enjoy working with Tom, he is very knowledgeable.
