compliance to government regulations -statutes, audits, sanctions,
penalties, legal actions, etc. – are fundamental, indispensable
and pivotal to the success or failure of any business.
“Boring”, “Difficult to retain”, “Hard
to grasp”, “Long”, are common complaints you hear.

legalese, procedures, policies –do not captivate learners.
It is accepted truth that well-intentioned
technical and compliance programs are simply “massive data
Learners end up frustrated and unable to
grasp and retain critical content for job application.
Re-energize and transform technical
and compliance elearning programs to story-based and make
them shorter, easier and faster for the learner.

“Ray is one of the
most natural teachers I have ever met. He is able to
take all the high-level concepts that he has studied,
discovered and used and bring them down to a level where
almost anyone can understand them.”
Johns Hopkins University
“Providing context to the learner in the form of
scenarios and stories has a remarkable impact on comprehension
and retention of material, and increases student engagement
with the content. Ray’s methods help to bring to life
what has traditionally been lifeless, and has helped
to provide a new and exciting approach to the way we
engage our students.”.
