Richard Watson – MBA-IT President, Bridgehill Learning Solutions, LLC
I am a Learning & Development professional who is passionate about solving problems and mentoring others. In everything I do, I focus on helping others, being easy to work with, and keeping things simple, whether I am working with clients from all over the world or leading a community of Learning & Development professionals. My skills have been sharpened through years of practical experience as a successful employee in various corporate settings (technology, pharmaceutical, consulting, and marketing to name a few), as well as the owner of my own business.
For clients, I offer a full suite of Learning & Development services. Before I define any solution, I invest the time to listen and analyze my client’s business needs. When I understand the practical problems to be addressed, I connect the right learning solutions that will best support the business goals. Often, that means pushing the boundaries of e-Learning applications to build custom, results-focused learning materials while acknowledging real-world constraints including time and resources. Through thoughtful use of presentations, simulations, and assessments, I create learning experiences that guide learners through their own professional development while producing measurable results for the business.
For my peers in the e-Learning community, I provide mentoring and guidance that helps them to develop professionally, while again pushing boundaries of the e-Learning field. I’m passionate about sharing my expertise with others in a variety of forums, including Articulate Challenges, ATD panels, and even my own blog series, “Succeeding as an e-Learning Freelancer.” I enjoy creating practical resources, articles, online training, and books to provide opportunities to connect my colleagues with solutions and each other.

Patricia Martin- MS VP, Business Solutions, Bridgehill Learning Solutions, LLC
I am a Quality professional with over 30 years of experience in the medical and biologics industries. My most recent role was as Director, Problem Management for American Red Cross, Biomedical Services where I was responsible for the maintenance of a comprehensive, national problem management system. Throughout my 22 year tenure at the American Red Cross, I served as an internal consultant to executive and mid-management staff to analyze and address compliance, regulatory and business issues.
My areas of expertise include Good Manufacturing Practices and Good Laboratory Practices, with specialties in operations-based Quality functions; compliance and auditing; problem management and change management. I led multiple regional and national-level change projects, managing geographically-dispersed leadership teams, to provide project assessment and oversight; process analysis and redesign; policy and procedures management; gap and impact analysis; and, communication planning. Throughout my career, I’ve worked extensively with public health officials to promote process standardization. I hold a Master of Science degree in Broadfield Biology, with emphasis in Microbiology and Biochemistry.
In the Fall of 2005, I worked across the local Paris, Texas faith-based, community to establish a communications network to identify and coordinate resources to provide disaster relief operations in support of several hundreds of evacuees from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Working with community leaders, a centralized operations center was established to provide feeding and coordinate housing facilities. A central, strategic warehouse was secured and stocked to provide basic supplies in support of immediate needs of victims of disasters across the community.
I tapped this communications network once again in 2008 to assemble and lead a team of community leaders to support, on short-notice, 600 soldiers assigned to a local National Guard base for training prior to deployment to the Middle East. In a matter of days, an on-site MWR facility was identified, outfitted with a leisure room, a computer lab, workout facilities, and a full services, on-site café. All facilities and services, provided at no cost to the National Guard or service personnel, were staffed and supported by local volunteers and organizations for several months until the group deployed.
