Episode 002: Megan Torrance

Megan Torrance

Megan Torrance is a whirlwind of energy, she not only manifests it, she is feeds off it. Some how she is able to run a successful learning and development company, speak at multiple events, host a regular learning camp called the Download, play and coach hockey and tons more. Maybe that’s how she earned the title Chief Energy Officer?

My experience with Megan has been that if you want to connect with someone, know what’s going on in the industry, or chat about some new idea — Megan is the type of person you want to be able to go to. And my apologies to Megan, during the episode I referred to her company as Torrance Learning Center. No Center, just TorranceLearning.

This is Megan’s backstory…

Official Bio

Megan Torrance is the Chief Energy Officer of TorranceLearning, an elearning design and development firm outside of Ann Arbor, MI. She has spent over two decades knee-deep in projects involving change management, instructional design, consulting and systems deployment. Megan thrives on design excellence and elegant project management. And coffee. She and the TorranceLearning team have developed the LLAMA project management approach, blending Agile with excellent instructional design techniques.

Away from the office, Megan plays & coaches ice hockey and manages a backyard farm with a garden, chickens and bees. Her daughter is a budding young entomologist and her husband sells farm equipment. “It’s a pretty random life. That’s what keeps it interesting.”
