ADDIEV LEARNING SPECIALISTS
Guy Paquette has vast array of experience in the design, development and delivery of professional education across multiple industries. Most recently, he has been working with Canopy Growth Corporation to scale their training center up.
He was a principal collaborator on the inception of IncludeMe, a government-funded, gamified app for workplace mental health training that was launched in 2018. He also developed and drove the national, multi-modal marketing campaign targeting two million Canadian managers and their influencers. A Queen's University study showed evidence that 78 percent of users experienced a shift in their attitudes — a significant success!
Guy spent 16 years with the Department of National Defence, working in communications, technology and training prior to starting Addiev and Cliff Hanger Communications Ltd. He pioneered and delivered DND's online and in-class new media and social media courses and trained and certified over 2,000 allied communications professionals through in-class, blended, and online learning programs. The Social Media Primer that he created is mandatory training for Public Affairs Officers. He also helped his training center migrate from D2L to Matrix and the Saba LMS. Prior to that, he developed D-News Network — an extranet newswire and publishing service for the Public Affairs community.
Guy is certified in Advanced Instructional Techniques and Course Analysis, Design and Evaluation through the Canadian Forces Training Development Centre. He is also certified in ADDIE for Instructional Design and Project Management. He also holds diplomas in Marketing, Computer Programming and Material/Inventory Management.
Addiev works with a team of specialist and consultants from a variety of disciplines. Our training professionals employ academic and industry standards, instructional design rigor and proven instructional techniques and assessment methodology for in-class, on-line and blended learning delivery.
