2017 Game Changer: Anson Mathews
Training Developer of DP World Anson Mathews is responsible for 18,000 trainees — and he's only 30 years old.
DP World, which operates marine and inland terminals and offers international maritime services, assigned Anson Mathews to its operations training center to serve as a consultant helping prepare the division for growth.
In a company of 37,000 employees, he became responsible for developing a learning strategy that would reach 18,000 trainees per year across more than 30 nationalities to ultimately build employee capability and drive individual and team performance.
Being a training professional by trade, Mathews, 30, had to face a number of challenges including making sure all trainers had a training background despite limited capabilities in terms of learning infrastructure, process and procedures aligned to business and people maturity.
Still Mathews, who has received numerous awards and accolades and holds several degrees and certifications, drew on his substantial background to simultaneously focus on the bigger and smaller picture to deliver results.
