HPT Video: Trish Uhl

This past Wednesday I conducted another HPT Video interview over Skype – this time with Trish Uhl.

I’ve been connected to Trish on Social Media for somewhere around 8-10 years, but I have never met her face to face. I wanted to learn more about her background, and how she got into L&D – which she calls L&P – Learning & Performance. I was/am also intrigued with her work in data analytics, AI, and Ambient Intelligence.

“Traveling Trish” was gracious in saying yes to my request for this interview a few weeks ago and we found time to sit virtually for this interview. Enjoy!


This video is 1:39:37 hours/minutes in length.

My HPT Video Series

The HPT Practitioner and HPT Legacy Video Series was started by Guy W. Wallace in 2008 as a means of sharing the diversity of HPT Practitioners, and the diversity of HPT Practices in the workplace and in academia.

The full set of videos are on YouTube and the index to them all and links to YouTube may be found  – here. There are now over 80 videos in my collection.


HPT – Human Performance Technology – is the application of science – the “technology” part – for Performance Improvement. As the late Don Tosti noted, “All performance is a human endeavor.”

Whether your label for HPT is that, or Performance Improvement or Human Performance Improvement, it is all about Evidence Based Practices for Performance Improvement at the Individual level, the Team level, the Process level, the Department level, the Functional level, the Enterprise level, and at the level of Society/World.

HPT Practitioners operate at all of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.


Although ISPI – the International Society for Performance Improvement is the home of many HPT Practitioners – the concepts, models, methods, tools and techniques are not limited to any one professional affinity group or professional label.

ISPI just happens to be where I learned about HPT – and has been my professional home since 1979.
