“We are moving toward a Google-fueled, Wikipedia-based collapse of any division between professionals and laypeople.” - wrote Tom Nichols, a professor at the U.S. Naval War College and at the Harvard Extension School, in his article "How America Lost Faith in Expertise".

Do you love traveling? Imagine that you do. Imagine you decide to book a hotel for your trip with booking.com. You go there, you find a hotel with a great rating/price ratio.

What is your image of the future of the training, consulting and coaching industries? And what are the steps necessary to be taken on the path to that bright future?
Imagine the world where the unification of the training industry is the reality. Where the industry is completely transparent and everyone has access to the shared knowledge. Where the training, coaching and consulting community invites both equal competition and collaboration. The world where the corporate education is on a completely different level.
We wanted to unify and bring together the training talent globally and make a platform accessible both for trainers and people who need that training talent.
