Charlie Gillette, Founder and CEO of Knowledge Anywhere, Inc. joins the Learning Unlocked podcast. Knowledge Anywhere is powering training for over 3 million learners worldwide. During this conversation, Gillette discusses why he started Knowledge Anywhere Inc. in 1998, how the e-learning space has evolved over that time, what the recipe is for compelling and engaging content and what the future of e-learning may look like.
Charlie Gillette founded Knowledge Anywhere (an IEH Company) in 1998 after realizing the potential power of disseminating knowledge through the Internet. Charlie noted that most organizations were losing money in lost productivity, travel costs, and training materials by sending their employees to one central location to receive traditional classroom-style training. Charlie previously held senior sales and marketing positions with AT&T Wireless and Baxter Healthcare. At AT&T Wireless, Charlie led successful sales, strategic alliance and system engineering teams. He holds a degree in finance from San Diego State University and has completed graduate-level studies in international business at the University of San Diego. Charlie has consulted for large companies and start-ups and speaks publicly on topics such as eLearning and launching new technology into the marketplace.
