"Karie’s deep expertise in the learning space will be invaluable to Skillable as we embark on our next growth stage. Her future-looking insights are much-needed by learning leaders as they grapple with the largest, growing skills shortage globally; a $6.5 trillion skills gap which will further increase with advances in AI, automation and digital transformation.

Karie’s unique experiences as a CLO and industry influencer will help Skillable’s customers and prospects better understand how to address their skills challenges and prepare their workforces for the future through hands-on learning."

Karie said, “Skillable offers a compelling solution for leaders, giving workers a much-needed hands-on way of deepening and validating their skills. It’s a missing piece for many training strategies, which have relied on theoretical, knowledge-based skill-building for too long. Skillable’s experiential learning opportunities and virtual labs rely on actual demonstration of capability, making skills-based hiring and development a reality.”
