About Me


Meet John McCoy, Copywriter…

… former musician, sailor, finance rep, trainer, Senior HR Professional, and HR technology consultant…
 … and fly fisherman, gardener, and bumbling handyman. 

In my HR career, one of my first challenges was developing a healthy relationship between HR and IT, so I learned IT-speak --- and SQL, HTML, Java, and networking. That led to a specialization in HR technology. I became the guy responsible for finding and selecting the right technology, leading the implementation, and teaching people how to use it.

My HR tech experience led to a new career in cloud HR technology as a professional services consultant. I worked with dozens of companies from a regional airline to global retail and pharmaceutical companies.

I have been writing since 2013 — hundreds of blog articles, e-books, white papers, and case studies. I have written dozens of pages of website copy, and all the content for new product launches from the first ad and email campaign to landing pages that closed the deal.

Simulation: The Gateway to Experiential Learning

With game mechanics, virtual reality, and augmented reality, we can create lifelike simulations with dynamic feedback mechanisms. We can make these simulations much less costly than traditional training because they are scalable and flexible, but they will only be effective if we use them in the right framework.
