Sonja Antell has been appointed as a Director of Action Learning Associates with a remit for business development. A highly experienced consultant who has been an Associate since the company started in 1998, Sonja will work alongside Managing Director, Ruth Cook. Building on the company’s considerable experience in the public, voluntary, creative and cultural sectors ALA is now increasingly working with corporate sector customers such as Heineken International, the Body Shop, Ernst & Young and Nissan.
The use of virtual action learning has also expanded the companies reach internationally and this is set to increase when ALA launches its new action learning facilitator training course delivered virtually. The company continues to work with overseas development agencies, not for profit, small campaigning and cultural organisations in the UK and overseas although the funding environment is presenting challenges in creating development opportunities in these sectors.
