Consultative Expertise

The Connective is an initiative of Tagoras, a firm that has consulted with organizations in the business of continuing education, professional development, and lifelong learning for well over a decade. (View a representative client list.) As a member of the Connective, you can engage directly with Tagoras principals Jeff Cobb and Celisa Steele as well as other Tagoras staff to tap their expertise and experience in launching  and growing multiple learning businesses and researching and writing extensively on related topics

Jeff provided expert analysis of our market along with strategic recommendations for how we should proceed. I recommend him as a trusted advisor for any organization looking to capitalize on new opportunities in the market for lifelong education.

Engaging Tagoras and particularly Celisa has been one of the smartest investments we could have made.

Community of Practice

Members of the Connective are learning business professionals with significant knowledge and experience. You’ll know this is the right community for you if you recognize that working in the market for continuing education, professional development, and lifelong learning is different from working in corporate L&D or academic degree programs. The ability to engage with other professionals in the learning business, ask questions, and share insight, tips, and best practices represents value that simply can’t be found anywhere else.

Body of Knowledge

The Connective is where all the recordings from past Learning • Technology • Design virtual conferences are hosted, along with recordings from a range of Leading Learning Webinars. Valuable knowledge is also shared  through uploaded resources and the discussion forums. Strong search capabilities make it possible for you to find content in the topic areas most important to you.

The top level navigation of the Connectives is publicly accessible, so you may use the navigation links to your left and at the top of this page to get a sense of some of the content and conversations available here (though actual access to content and conversation is open only to members).
