More about Wise World

Founded by Taryn Ash, Wise World is a formidable team of professional development experts from around the world who solve client's challenges.

Our mission is to create impactful solutions that cut directly to the needs of our clients, rather than selling a one-size-fits-all approach.  We have the tools and talent to do this swiftly, and powerfully. We aim to incorporate participants' actual issues in the learning so the company and their people feel immediate ROI from their training investment. And we strive to turn the process and tools over to our clients to empower them, so we can step back.
