Our Facilitators & Business Development Partners
E.M. Forster is famous for writing “only connect!” at the end of one of his novels, but he likely learned that sentiment from Senani Ratnayake. Senani knows that learning and change come about when people feel attached to the process and joined to each other. In fact, she is such a connector that participants leave her learning sessions feeling like they have had a personal and transformative experience. As a humanist, Senani believes that every person is equally important, no matter their position or experience, and this viewpoint lies at the core of her success as a Learn2 Leader. In Senani’s world, feeling valued builds connection, connection motivates learning, learning leads to change, and change creates measurable results.
