Linked – No One Wants To Talk About These 3 Ways AI Copilots Will Reshape Learning

It’s right there while I’m working.

I don’t have to bring in another tool or trainer.

I’ve seen the same thing Loryan has seen, though. Microsoft partners and consulting companies are offering up “expertise” on Copilot that I don’t believe they have.

So after 12 years, I’m back, but it’s very different. Because 12 years is a long time and things change fast around here. This opportunity only came about because I’ve been changing and now have something different to offer, that matches up with how the firm has been changing.

It might be the best career move I’ve ever made.
