As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

An innovative entrepreneur with 50 years of expertise in technology and learning systems, Mr. Cowie excels as the co-founder of SkillMaker, Inc. and chief executive officer of the eponymous Les Cowie Consulting, LLC, through which he also serves as a principal consultant and public speaker. He also created the "7 Steps" program and methodology, a recipe for success. Through his work, he develops scripts to educate 'raw' job applicants and high school students, and provides consulting services for business development and employee upskilling in an artificial intelligence world. Previously, he was the learning experience development consultant, president, and chief executive officer of Promising People Enterprises, LLC. In this capacity, Mr. Cowie developed the electrical helper program, a 50-lesson, VR-based training program.

Drawing on years of expertise, Mr. Cowie held numerous vice presidential roles in business development, marketing, and sales with Cay Clubs International, CoreXpand, Pre-Solutions, Inc., First Horizon Merchant Services, Inc., INCAT, Inc., Checkmate, Inc., IMNET Systems, and GMD, Inc. Throughout his career, Mr. Cowie has led multimillion-dollar projects, managed teams of various sizes, and developed learning-based education programs.

Due to his vast knowledge, Mr. Cowie has authored several works on Amazon, including "New Job? Fast Start!: 7 Steps to Be Seen Mastering Your New Job Quickly," "7 Steps for Employees to be Successful Quickly: In-Company Mentor Edition," and "Getting More with Less: When Business Conditions Have the CEO in a Squeeze."

An expert in his field, Mr. Cowie holds a bachelor's degree in arts, psychology, industrial training, and English from Rhodes University. Subsequently, he studied at the Georgia Institute of Technology. In conjunction with his professional and educational pursuits, he has contributed to his community through the local chapter of the Knights of Columbus and as a volunteer with his church. Likewise, Mr. Cowie wrote "Why Teach it All – When 30% May Be Enough," a how-to for occupational analysis using the Pareto 20/80 principle.

While his career has been filled with highlights, Mr. Cowie takes pride in creating the Electrical Helper (EHP) and other XR Programs. EHP trains electrical helpers in 15 days instead of the traditional 8 months. By leveraging virtual training first, students come to the hands-on portion of the class knowing what to do, making the certification process faster and more efficient. Though hard work and dedication have brought him far in his career, he credits his success to his faith and his passion for what he does. Within the coming years, Mr. Cowie intends to make the multi-language SaaS application accessible to corporate learning specialists and educationists worldwide.
