Immerse, a leading provider of virtual reality (VR) training for business has announced that Donald H Taylor, Chairman of the Learning and Development Institute, has joined the company’s advisory board. Immerse has developed the Immerse Platform, enabling companies to create, scale and measure virtual reality training.
“We are delighted to have Don join our advisory board” commented Tom Symonds, CEO of Immerse. “He is a highly respected expert in workplace learning and learning technologies, and by combining his knowledge and experience with our technology offering will help to ensure we continue to be at the forefront of enterprise VR training.”
Don is a veteran of the learning, skills and human capital industries, with experience at every level from delivery roles to chairman of the board. A recognised commentator and organiser in the fields of workplace learning and learning technologies, Donald is passionately committed to developing the learning and development profession.
Donald H Taylor comments, “The technology Immerse has created really excites me. It solves one of the biggest challenges that VR training has previously faced—that it was often an isolated, standalone training method. The platform has the ability to scale and provide measurable outputs, bringing VR training firmly into the mainstream. I’m looking forward to being involved in this innovative venture as the enterprise VR training market develops.”
Immerse works with some of the world’s largest enterprises, including Shell, DHL, GE Healthcare and QinetiQ. These customers have all recognised the potential of VR training and the ability of the Immerse VEP to scale, integrate and measure their VR training programmes.
