I USE MY SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE TO INFLUENCE ORGANIZATIONAL GROWTH AND BOTTOM LINE PROFITABILITY THROUGH MANY YEARS OF BUSINESS OWNERSHIP, OPERATIONS, BUSINESS MANAGEMENT, PROJECT MANAGEMENT, AND CREATIVE SKILLS.
I have owned and operated several businesses since 1984. An entrepreneur at heart I approach a project like it was part of my business. From retail to insurance I have always been able to use my experience to understand what the business goals and objectives are and provide the path to be successful.
E-LEARNING DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING – I have always been on the cutting edge of new technologies and delivery. I started developing computer-based training in 1994 when it was delivered on a floppy disk. I start a project by analyzing and understanding the desired result, design the best approach, develop the course, implement the course and evaluate the effectiveness. I am an expert in Lectora, Photoshop, Captivate, and many other software programs.
GRAPHIC DESIGN AND VIDEO PRODUCTION – I believe that people will learn more if they can use all their senses. I am a visual learner so I am very keen on providing graphics that enhance a product whether it is an eLearning module or a website. Being an artist, I’ve been able to use those skills throughout my life.
PRESENTATIONS – Creating a PowerPoint isn’t all that hard, but creating a good PowerPoint is. Creating meaningful charts, graphics and useful content makes the presentation useful and memorable. I have also created non-PowerPoint presentations for trade shows, websites, and meetings.
PASSION – If you’ve read the above you know I’m passionate about art. I create various types of art – wood, metal, pen & ink, and digital art. Plus I like looking at art whether it’s in a small gallery or at the Louvre in Paris. I also love photography and taking photos on travels around the world and at car shows and vintage races. It keeps me well-rounded and adds to the other skills I have and use.
