Here at Connect, we are committed to achieving our mission: Everyone Can. Our group believe in powering performance through experiential learning and making learning accessible for everyone. We’re not able to achieve this mission without a dedicated staff of experts who live and breathe training, development and accessibility. We’re proud of our culture and community, so we wanted to highlight a little more about who makes up the team at Connect. This month’s Employee Spotlight is on Cheryl Hamlyn, the Studio Manager at our Cheshire office.
