A champion of informal learning and systems thinking, Jay’s calling is to create happier, more productive workplaces. He was the first person to use the term eLearning on the web. He literally wrote the book on Informal Learning. Jay works from the Internet Time Lab in Berkeley, high in the hills a dozen miles east of the Golden Gate Bridge and a mile and a half from the University. People visit the Lab to spark innovation and think fresh thoughts. Berkeley is the birthplace of the cyclotron, California Cuisine, and custom coffee roasting in the United States. Jay is a change agent, futurist, speaker, and author whose insights and stories will expand your perspective and enliven your meetings. He distills lessons from cognitive science, social networking, business strategy, futures research, and psychology to boost sales, improve customer service, and spark innovation. Jay is the author of Informal Learning: Rediscovering the Natural Pathways that Inspire Innovation and Performance, Working Smarter Fieldbook, Implementing eLearning, and Aha! Get Smart. Jay has keynoted conferences in the U.S., Canada, Austria, U.K., Germany, Australia, Portugal, Belgium, India, Brazil, and Abu Dhabi. He travels the world, but increasingly delivers presentations and events virtually over the web. Jay is a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard Business School. Jay and his wife Uta live with their miniature longhaired dachshunds in the hills of Berkeley, California.
