Kydon Group, the leading Asia-Pacific digital learning solutions provider innovating workplace training, has named Thomas Paris as its Chief Learning Architect.
Thomas is an accomplished digital education professional with experience across industry sectors, including education, policy, technology, and business development. He has spent over ten years developing ideas and solutions to stay ahead of the curve in both the public and private sectors.
“We are excited with Thomas joining our team, not just to bring into our organization his immense talent, but to build up a new capacity for learning transformation that is necessary for the future of work and learning,” said David Yeo, founder, and CEO of Singapore-based Kydon Group.
Kydon is continuing the development of ZilLearn Skills, Singapore’s first digital learning and skills-matching platform built to keep the workforce relevant for tomorrow’s jobs. The platform is powered by Kydon’s learning network disruptor ZilLearn and will provide personalized career and learning recommendations for Singaporeans. Through skillsets evaluation, leveraging data-driven job market insights, and identifying upskilling and reskilling needs, ZilLearn Skills will future-proof careers and transform lifelong learning.
Thomas has designed university-level courses and capstone projects. At the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), he managed the end-to-end creation and delivery of impactful L&D programs from an early start-up stage to a global audience — growing from zero to a multi-million-dollar company with clients in over 170 countries.
“As Kydon’s Chief Learning Architect, I will bring my hands-on experience to design holistic solutions that can scale effectively. In this rapidly evolving environment, I also witnessed the extent to which motivated people are your most valuable resource, and I intend to double down on that,” said Thomas.
“My role at Kydon will provide the foundational structure atop which our team will layer innovative learning systems to push the education industry forward.”
Thomas has published articles for the ICC and G20 magazines and routinely advises start-ups in the region. He regularly presents at corporate seminars and has hosted dozens of webinars, podcasts, and panel discussions with senior industry leaders. He has been a member of four advisory boards, one of them as chairman. Thomas has lived in the United States, Europe, and now Singapore since 2015.
Thomas graduated with a Master’s degree in management from the American Business School of Paris (ABS). He has also earned professional certificates from Harvard University and the University of London.
