Meet our new Directors

Gemma Wells

How do you feel about winning a place on the eLN Board?  I am over the moon to be voted back on to the board. It makes me feel like I have made an impact over the last couple of years. This network has helped me so much so the chance to be able to give something back makes me happy!

What are you most excited about for 2021 within the eLN?  I’m most excited about the webinar series we are starting in the new year, it’s going to be a design journey and it’s exciting because a number of our members are involved! I’m also excited about connect happening, it’s such a great networking event and I really missed it this year!

What do you want Santa to bring you for Christmas?  What I would love Santa to bring me is a night off from mum duties!!!

Do you have any New Years resolutions?  I tend not to make new years resolutions as I never stick to them. But next year I’m planning on running 50 miles in Jan for Maggie’s house so I am committed to getting fitter and this will kick start it!

How do you feel about winning a place on the eLN Board?  I am thrilled to have been voted on! There were some brilliant candidates this year.

What are you most excited about for 2021 within the eLN?  Having attended the first board meeting, there’s so much to get involved with. The webinars and coffee mornings will be a great opportunity to meet members. I hope to get involved in the awards too, having been on the presenting side for a number of years now – I know what it’s like!

What do you want Santa to bring you for Christmas?  Lots of fun adventures and experiences to do with friends and family in 2021.

Do you have any New Years resolutions?  Make time to get through my ever-growing reading list! Recommendations always welcome.

How do you feel about winning a place on the eLN Board?  I feel very honoured to be voted by my peers to the board of directors for eLN, I am very passionate about all aspects of L&D so I’m looking forward to contributing to the board, the network and the wider community

What are you most excited about for 2021 within the eLN?  I most excited about discussing and reflecting on how 2020 has positively affected L&D, in being a catalyst for so many L&D specialists to deliver learning either online or blended, the lessons learned, and how this will impact their strategies in the future. From this we as a community can learn from each other as to best practices, how learners have reacted and adjusted, and the impact that these changes have delivered. 2021 can be the year to cement beneficial changes after a year of uncertainty.

What do you want Santa to bring you for Christmas?  My vaccine! I am missing seeing my friends and colleagues.

Do you have any New Years resolutions?  Normally I make resolutions every year, this forthcoming year will be focussed around gratitude and self reflection, utilising the changes of 2020 to lead to positive outcomes for 2021 and beyond… and be more healthy – 2020 was not good for my waistline!

How do you feel about winning a place on the eLN Board?  I’m super chuffed! I’ve never stood before as I didn’t feel I had much to give, a little bit of imposter syndrome creeping in I think. Having been co-opted for the past few months and then being officially voted onto the Board has really made my year, it’s a fantastic network run by some really talented and dedicated people.

What are you most excited about for 2021 within the eLN?  The eLN is a community and I’d love to really try and bring that community together. I will be relaunching the coffee mornings in January and it would be great to see some new faces.

What do you want Santa to bring you for Christmas?  My mum always gives the best presents, and I’ve asked for a large sauté pan (basically it’s a deep frying pan with a lid). My husband says it’s a surprise so it could literally be anything, but probably something he wanted for himself ha ha.

Do you have any New Years resolutions?  This year I have tried to eat healthier which has worked up to a point I don’t drink milk anymore and have cut out lots of fat, so I think it will be getting more strict with my diet. I might even try cutting out refined things like bread and sugar but we’ll see how well that goes. Come to the coffee morning on 15th January and see if I’ve fallen off the wagon!

Paul Service

How do you feel about winning a place on the eLN Board?  Feels great to be back on the board to finish what I started. Super proud to join such a professional team that is stronger than ever.

What are you most excited about for 2021 within the eLN?  Collaborating, working with and growing as a community with the eLN members – It’s the members that make it MAGIC!

What do you want Santa to bring you for Christmas?  Stronger/Younger bones to keep me in one piece. Just started skateboarding & bought a Onewheel – It’s a steep learning curve!
