Our member organizations worldwide collaborate and learn together on the issues and challenges you face. Together, we are evaluating, inventing, revising and improving the exciting field of learning! This is a community of trust, appropriate confidentiality and syndicated efforts to enhance the effectiveness of our efforts on learning and training.

“For years, Elliott Masie’s Learning CONSORTIUM has helped our L&D professionals pause, reflect, disrupt themselves, look in different directions, and stay curious. Many of the strategic changes we have made in the past decade have their origins in the people, conversations, and collaboration fostered by the CONSORTIUM.”
~Jeremy Smith, Herman Miller

"Brilliant, engaging, funny, and thought provoking, Elliott and the Masie Center have gone beyond being a resource for trainers, they are influencing people in government, education, and industry around the world for the better."
