10 September 2018 Authored by Consultancy.uk

Accenture veteran Aimie Chapple has joined the board of a global e-learning company. The experienced consulting industry figure will sit on the Learning Technologies Group board as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect.

The UK e-learning industry remains one of the most mature in Europe, though EU countries are making up that ground quickly. The overall training industry was hit badly by the global recession, and has been on a slow road to recovery since, however, e-learning is booming. Buoyed by the digital disruption trend that has seen new innovative techniques accelerate to the fore of their respective fields – as well as the pervasiveness of tablet and smartphone technologies making many “bring your own device” techniques significantly more workable now – the global market for e-learning is expected to surpass $65 billion in the next year.

Tapping into this, Learning Technologies Group (LTG) is a leader in the high growth workplace industry. The integrated e-learning services and technologies provider, headquartered in London, offers end-to-end learning solutions, which range from strategic consultancy, through to content and platform solutions and analytical insights, which can enable corporate and government clients to meet their performance objectives. Listed on the London Stock Exchange Alternative Investment Market, LTG has offices in Europe, the United States, Asia-Pacific and South America.

As the firm prepares for a sustained period of growth, it has announced the appointment of experienced client innovation expert Aimie Chapple as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect. In her new role with LTG, Chapple will advise on policymaking and planning exercises at the firm. Chapple arrives at LTG following a quarter of a century with technology and professional services giant Accenture. Her 25 year career with the global consultancy saw Chapple work with major clients in the US, Europe and Asia on large scale change programmes across a wide range of industries.

During her tenure at Accenture, Chapple held a variety of senior leadership roles across its UK & Ireland wing, most recently spending six years as Chief Innovation Officer UK & Ireland, before leaving in May 2018. In this role, she helped clients navigate and take advantage of digital disruption, alongside her role as Managing Director of Accenture’s UK Health business, which she had taken on in 2013. Prior to this position, Chapple was Managing Director of Management Consulting UK & Ireland from 2010 to 2013, and Talent & Organisation Practice Lead UK & Ireland from 2007 to 2010. 

She also held a succession of board positions within the business, including Executive Board Member (2010 – 2018), and Company Director (2012 – 2018). In addition, Chapple is also a former President and Chair of the Management Consultancies Association Advisory Board, having held office from 2012 to 2014.

Commenting on the experienced arrival, Andrew Brode, Chairman of LTG, said, "We are delighted to welcome Aimie to Learning Technologies Group as a Non-Executive Director.  Her deep understanding of business transformation, talent management and digital disruption in the corporate environment will be immensely valuable as we move forward with our growth plans.”
