Connor is delighted to welcome Paul Armstrong as their new Director of People Development.
Paul joined Connor in September 2022, leading the design and development of a variety of learning and coaching propositions. Paul is an experienced consultant, executive coach and leader in the learning and development space, having spent some 20 years in roles that improve performance in people and organisations.
Paul has a wealth of experience across training, apprenticeships, human resources, L&D, leadership, culture, and change. He started his career as an engineer before moving into the HR space and his past roles have included Head of L&D for E.ON’s Central and Southern Europe markets, numerous roles across human resources. More recently, Paul had worked as a consultant and business owner, helping organisations with leadership development, academy setups, competency development, learning technology, culture change, onboarding programmes, and learning strategy.
“Paul is a welcome addition to our team. He is genuinely passionate about people development and his extensive experience across the people and change spectrum means that he is able to get to the root cause of problems within his clients and develop outstanding, sustainable change through people. I am delighted to welcome Paul.”
Managing Director at Connor, Fraser Silvey
Paul adds, “I remember those moments in my career where the lightbulb went on, those learnings and experiences that helped me just see the world differently than I did before. I’ve spent the last 20 years in L&D trying to create as many of those lightbulb moments for as many people as I can. I still get a kick out of working with professionals who all have a similar outlook and are driven to see others develop, flourish, and grow. I sensed this from the moment I met the Connor team and couldn’t help but want to be a part of what they do.”
For over 30 years Connor has built a strong reputation for enabling people, leaders, teams and organisations to perform at their best.
