Introduction

I am a specialist in multi-channel knowledge management, instructional design and deployment, whose work has won awards. I have more than 30 years experience within the field of digital and traditional resource development and delivery.

 

I have delivered training and training resources to people ranging from those with learning difficulties to senior managers and advanced practitioners, operating in fields as diverse as clinical (medical, veterinarian, dental), compliance, finance, military aviation (fixed and rotary wing), and scientific research.

 

My work is further complimented by senior management, teaching, and vocational training experience, together with a background in engineering and computing.

is England's unsung hero, as it co-ordinates the Emergency Services (Ambulance, Coast Guard, Fire and Police) in responding to incidents such as flooding, ships run aground and, at the time of writing, the COVID-19 pandemic.
