Let's see it Solvd Together
Morten Bonde and Charlie Kneen are friends who have worked together over the last ten years. They met at BP and quickly bonded over a mutual dislike for all things eLearning and badly delivered classroom training.
Working with Nick Shackleton-Jones they were part of a self-proclaimed 'dream-team' of Learning and Performance Innovation consultants who disbanded in 2016.
Towards the end of 2019 they launched Solvd Together, and supported by their network of Chuck Norris level Associates, they started addressing the imbalance between the world of work and the consumer experience.
Solvd Together are based in central London, and we always ready for a chat about your challenges or ideas.
