Sarah Hughes

Senior L&D Manager

I love learning and helping people to develop personally and professionally through effective learning. That’s what motivated me to join GÉANT. Previously I helped leaders and future leaders build their skills, confidence and knowledge in my role as an Executive Coach and Business School Lecturer. Working in education and research helped me connect with the opportunities and challenges facing GÉANT’s wider community.

Learning is game-changer. It can propel organisations into new areas, boost motivation and make work more productive and enjoyable. Organisations thrive when their people are continuously learning. Within GLAD, our goal is to equip our partners and staff to deliver GEANT’s ambitious mission by providing technical and professional learning. Do explore how our learning resources can help you today!

Technical Trainer Coordinator

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” -Benjamin Franklin.

As a learning and development project manager I provide learning programs that matter to GÉANT community members. I am with the GÉANT community for almost 10 years with the past 7 years in learning and development.

Before, I worked in a number of different technology industries. My strength comes through using my business skills to understand what organisations need to increase performance and productivity, and then design programs that excite and motivate participants using modern adult learning concepts and learning technology. All of this while keeping Franklin’s words on top of mind.

Learning and Development Specialist

I have spent the entirety of my career (20 years plus and counting) working in Learning and Development. Throughout this time I have applied my skills to a number of industries and sectors to assist with the growth and development of others. I enjoy all aspects of training design and delivery and hope to bring my enthusiasm and energy to the already thriving GLAD community.

In recent years I have taken a real interest in modern learning principles and the way we learn differently due to advances in technology and distance learning. I still thoroughly enjoy getting together with groups of learners and look to adopt a true blended learning approach to the courses I provide. I look forward to meeting with and working with a great number of you to help you achieve your GLAD learning objectives and provide you with the tools and skills to grow and develop.
