Get to Know Our August Learner of the Month

August was INDEAL U’s biggest month yet with over 600 lessons completed in our video library! Our Learner of the Month, Jason Fenner of Workscapes, was responsible for about 10% of that on his own, which is no small feat.

Jason told us, “The lessons transition very smoothly and make you want to keep watching. The platform is user friendly as well.”

“Being somewhat new to the furniture industry, several of the lessons helped me directly with a better understanding of what I’m dealing with in regard to product. Most of the other lessons gave me directions in ethics and how to work within the industry.”

Product knowledge is top of mind with Jason – product-specific lessons were his request for future content. He said, “Being new to the furniture industry has made me hungry to understand it better and identify the many different options that are offered.” Our series of live and interactive webinars is where we start digging deeper into product options. Too busy to make it to one of our webinars? We’re working on a solution for that, so stay tuned!

His favorite series of videos was Words of Wisdom. “It’s great to hear from people who have been involved with the industry – it helps to be better prepared of what’s to come.”
