Bolger began by enlisting clients for training programs designed by professors at Wilfrid Laurier University in the Kitchener-Waterloo area of Ontario, and later York University in north Toronto. Greater opportunity began knocking in the downtown core of the Greater Toronto Area about 1997, which was when the company re-branded L(earn)².
Much of the atmosphere of the fun and "interactive" l(earn)ing that L(earn)² provides has as much to do with an unforced kind of self-revelation - of both personal approaches and corporate styles - as it does with learning the nuts and bolts of dealing with outside problems. But if there is one primary constant and signature element of L(earn)², it is the "immersive environment" that encourages it.
The lesson of the L(earn)² training group is that experiential l(earn)ing leads to exponential earning.
