Martyn Whitby appointed to ATD Valley of the Sun Chapter Board of Directors

On 26 November 2019, ATD’s Valley of the Sun Chapter announced the appointment of Martyn Whitby to its Board of Directors. Whitby is currently an Account Executive with OpenSesame. 

For the last 14 years, Whitby has worked with L&D professionals to build training programs by recommending elearning courses to meet and exceed their training goals.  These have included smaller 100-person start-up companies to Global 2000 enterprises. 

“It’s amazing seeing companies of all sizes and industries facing the same obstacles in deploying training, measuring impact and defining value,” noted Whitby.

By joining the board, Whitby hopes to help build chapter membership and enhance the member experience.  “The pace of change in business is only getting faster and belonging to a group that supports your professional goals has never been more important.  By bringing more folks into the conversation, we all benefit from each other’s expertise and experience,” remarked Whitby.

Whitby studied eLearning and Instructional Design at Rio Solado Community College and Entrepreneurship at Mt. Hood Community College. He is passionate about measuring the impact of training and proving results and excited about the prospects of taking ATD Valley of the Sun membership to new levels.
