About Us

Who are evalu8d?
Phil and Emma LaViolette set up evalu8d in 2005. Our initial goals for establishing a business together were to gain a better work/life balance, doing something we felt passionate about.

Our Purpose

- to ensure people have the right skills and tools, to make them better in work and life.

Our Vision

- to be renowned for delivering quality solutions, that adds real value.

Our Values

- to be dynamic; to be different; and to offer every client return on investment.

Our Team

Our team is made up of people who we have either worked with or for. Ex-clients and Colleagues that we trust implicitly to deliver superb workshops and second to none coaching.

Our experience goes beyond the UK and cuts across many industries and at all organisational levels.

Here's a list of the organisations our team have worked with and typical projects we have supported.

Experience counts

What's in a name?

We were going to call ourselves 'Tick Box Training Limited' or 'Death by PowerPoint Inc' but those names were taken, and there were already too many companies in that market! So evalu8d learning and development was born.

We wanted a name that would stand for what we wanted to achieve. Too much training is delivered without adding to the bottom line or making a contribution.

Did you know that the 8 in evalu8d is based on the Chinese symbol for infinity. As we believe learning is a continuous loop.

The company behind resourcily

In 2016 we created a sister site called resourcily

At evalu8d we have great experience of training and have amassed a large volume of resources.

Our vision has always been to take these resources to the masses, and so we created resourcily to be the portal to this.
