About the Author

Two of the world’s leading learning performance experts . . .

Roger E. Boswarva and Virginia Koenig have spent their lives educating and benefiting others. For Roger, it began as a young man more than five decades ago when, as a swim champ in Australia, he began coaching the lads in his local surf life saving club’s competition team. Virginia began her coaching and educating career in corporate America.

Roger is the Chairman and Founding Partner of Ability Consultants, Inc. and Management Science Associates and a management scientist of forty years experience in corporate, executive, and champion athlete performance improvement. As a Fellow of the British Institute of Management, he conducted management training and led seminars and symposia on executive and corporate performance improvement for the BIM, and the Management Center Europe, Brussels. Now retired from academia and international consulting to major corporations, he has spent the last ten years codifying the results of fifty years of research into aspects of human performance including the ability to learn. He is a Certified Performance Technologist with the International Society for Performance Improvement.

Virginia is trained in the Montessori Method of education. An avid tutor, she has spent the last several years as a volunteer tutor with Literacy Partners, a not-for-profit organization serving adults who failed in the conventional educational system but who have realized a need to improve, become literate, and earn their GED. She has spent twenty-five years in corporate Human Resources, specializing in employee benefits and training. She holds the Certified Employee Benefits Specialist designation from the Wharton School of Business and the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans, and is a Certified Performance Technologist with the International Society for Performance Improvement. In 1997, she joined Mr. Boswarva in establishing Ability Consultants, Inc. to specialize in ability and performance improvement for executives and organizational teams, and is currently the company president. She is the Founding President of the New York Environs Chapter of the International Society for Performance Improvement.
