Fan of creative technology, elearning, instructional design and a little geeky

A little mad with excitement…

As some of you might have noticed over the past days, I’ve been doing some house-cleaning in a virtual sense over this wonderful Easter break.  This hasn’t been without a reason. Easter for me this year marks the start of something new and fresh.

The creative, print and publishing industries are bubbling with excitement. A whirlwind is blowing across the publishing industry as we speak, and publishers are deciding which electronic reading devices to support, what formats to build and how to convert their current print-publications to electronic format.

We are only days away from witnessing Adobe Systems launch of an entire new suite of products with the Creative Suite 5 launch. Bigger and better than ever before… continuing the publishing revolution.

It seems the world has gone a little mad with excitement… and I’m riding along with it.  As of April 6, 2010, I will be working as a freelance trainer, public speaker and publishing consultant. I hope to bring knowledge, experience and excitement about creative and publishing technologies to your organisation… Be it in the role of Adobe Certified Instructor, bringing your staff up to speed with the latest tools and tricks in Adobe apps, a speaker at one of your events, or as an independent publishing consultant helping you manage & map the path of your publishing future.

I look forward to being part of the great changes technology will make in our daily personal and work lives.
