We achieve authentic engagement by expertly integrating visual thinking, meaningful conversations, and experiential process into the custom learning solutions we design.


We are experts in, and draw insights from, the following fields:

Applied Learning custom solutions have been used by hundreds of companies and millions of client employees.

Applied Learning Labs started in 1999 when Andrew Leong-Fern and Peter Gorman plunged into the the world of strategy execution consulting.

The vision of the company is a laboratory where ideas drawn from various fields are combined and market-tested to create innovative solutions that clients find invaluable.

At the heart of each new solution is the belief that the passion and contribution of individuals can be unleashed if people engage in an authentic and meaningful way.

Though “Labs” is no longer part of our company branding, our clients continue to benefit from ongoing product innovation and insights realized from real-world applications.

We are proud of the work that we do in partnership with our clients, and we couldn't achieve that without our talented team of dedicated people!
