We empower (whakamana) our learners to invest in the continuity of knowledge building to enable them to perform better.

We inspire (whakaohooho) our learners to commit to their growth and progress through the personalisation of the journey.

We challenge (wero) our learners to apply innovative, fresh thinking through the application of perspective by learning on-the-job.

We engage (tūhono) the hearts and minds of learners with evidence-driven, social learning.

We help organisations and their people design and deliver a learning journey that integrates learning into the flow of work. The result is a much higher success rate in the transfer of skills. We encourage learners and managers to build these skills together.

Our Story

Since 2005 we’ve been working alongside our clients to:

  • inspire, engage and develop their people.
  • bring about long-term culture change and better performance.

Founded by Peter Allen and Martyn McKessar; The Learning Wave was formed with its first contract under its belt. The focus was to deliver a programme that would achieve results that get people talking. It worked! This formed the beginning of our approach to learning. To first engage hearts and minds, then to empower, inspire and challenge for better performance.

Through word of mouth, the business quickly grew. With proven results, strong relationships and an ability to look at the business as a whole and ‘problem solve’; we worked alongside our clients as a learning development partner to identify and implement skills, knowledge and practice where it was needed most. In turn this achieved the results they needed.

Fast forward to today, we are proud to have worked with hundreds of organisations and thousands of learners to achieve real results make a real difference to business and people performance.

Our People

At the heart of The Learning Wave you’ll find our people – from learning designers, sales and marketing to associates and creative. We take a team approach to everything we do. No success is one person’s effort – we bring people together from diverse backgrounds with a wide range of skill sets, mindsets and assets. It’s when we come together that we make the impossible, possible.

Together our team harness the knowledge, resources and expertise to get to the heart of an organisation, understand its challenges and goals, and collaborate to deliver success.
