Working with Deo is always a pleasure. His deep knowledge of local needs and national education movements make him on of my favorite partners. My teams often focus on family and community engagement and the outcomes of Deo’s workshops have always included not only gains in participant knowledge, but deeper connections between participants and their community.

The Art of Learning Success

Igniting passion in students and helping them take ownership of their learning.


The process of learning has changed substantially over time. But most educational institutions -- stuck in old ways that limit their students’ abilities -- are failing to keep up. Institutions have a hard time letting go of the past. Our current education model was designed for a different generation. It promoted a single-minded way to acquire and demonstrate knowledge. But one size does not fit all. Students today must be encouraged to discover the learning approach that best suits them. The secret sauce is focusing on the Being, not just on the Doing. What drives students’ success is already alive inside them. It simply needs to be recognized and nourished. Build relationships with your students and empower them internally and you will start seeing positive results. Provide them with the tools they need to learn authentically and they can then take ownership of their learning success. In short, put them in the driver’s seat and they will take control.

Unique Approach

Provide student-centric tools to help teachers drive successful personalized learning. Train educators regarding the successful learning cycle. Give them the tools to identify where students are mentally and academically in order to provide the right resources at the right time and, thus, elevate learning engagement and commitment.

Help educators view students holistically by providing tools that ignite them to take ownership of learning by focusing on the “Being” and not just the “Doing.” Provide tools to educators that help students embrace and normalize learning challenges.

What is it?

Provide educators with tools to drive learning success. Easy-to-use tools that positively impact learning outcomes by equipping educators with strategies to become experts of their students’ learning influences and motivations. The tools are delivered by Deo through customized workshops, training sessions and keynote presentations in collaboration with institutions and organizations.

Education Experiences

Deo has worked at Southern New Hampshire University, building innovative competency-based learning programs for adult learners through employer and community partnerships. He contributed to increasing the scale of the program from 250 students to over 5,000. This experience expanded his ability to develop solutions around the complex issues that prevent organization from moving forward.

Deo has also worked for Motivitis, an edTech company, engaging with K-12 schools and universities nationally that were looking to move to competency-based education. Some of his work entailed evaluating learning models the schools used in order to help them integrate those models into a technology platform.
