What Our Clients Are Saying

Please don't stop

I asked my L&D WOL Circle, "If they could ever listen to one podcast to maintain and nurture you L&D expertise what would you choose?" All 5 picked Learning Uncut. One said, "I love that the conversations are a mixture of the why and how. I have to persuade myself really hard to listen to anything else and sometimes do so to add variety but tend to go back to Learning Uncut." Please don't stop"
- Miriam Spiedel

I love your faciliation style

"I love your faciliation style in these podcasts. I am beginning to recognise and learn from the way you seek clarification on behalf of your listeners and anticipate the questions they would pose. I am in awe of your distinctive knack for summarising the key points particularly from the more complex or discursive exposition. I have found myself trying to emulate this. Thanks too for making cleaning much less of a chore."
- Helen

It’s a super podcast

"I’ve also pretty much listened to all the pre Disruption podcasts too at this stage - on my Covid breakout walks! I’ve found a nugget or three in many of them. It’s a super podcast - great facilitation and production and the approach to the supporting materials is an excellen add-on."

Being back into the L&D space I need to get up to speed quickly. This podcast helps me do that. I started by picking and choosing episodes that I was particularly interested in but then I realised “it’s all good”! So I listen to each one now. Really concise, practical and useable.
- Bill Wallace
Apple Podcasts Listener

The hosts, Michelle Ockers and Karen Moloney are, obviously, skilled and knowledgable L&D practitioners in their own right, so the conversations hit the right notes and I particularly like the regular final question all guests are asked.
