Creating the design and website for my personal brand
It’s time to invest in this for many reasons–and as an INTP, it’s taken me lots of time to get here. I’m grateful to be working with some very talented people to bring my personal brand to life–Kyle Sun for brand design, Ray Harripaul for photography and Jimmy Rose for UX design and website development.
Testing the Bullet Journal for organization
While technology is great, I’ve fought with app-based and online productivity tools because I was looking at a screen all the time–an endless drag and drop of my daily tasks. I felt the need to reset and build around a paper-based system. And then I discovered the Bullet Journal system designed by Ryder Carroll. Apparently others feel the same way because there’s a strong #bujo community on Instagram and tons of Bullet Journal ideas on Pinterest. So far, I’m loving the beauty in its simplicity and versatility. Thank you, Ryder.
Starting as program coordinator @ George Brown College
In September, I took over as head of the Digital Media Marketing postgraduate program at George Brown College. This program launched 3 years ago and I’m excited to collaborate with faculty and administration colleagues, students and industry partners to take it to the next level.
Designing curriculum @ George Brown College
I truly love the challenge of learning experience design for marketing. This semester I led the curriculum update for the Digital Media Marketing postgraduate program. It’s the roadmap for the v2.0 of this popular program that will rollout starting in September 2018.
Facilitating learning @ George Brown College
My course mix this semester includes Social Media Marketing, Strategic Marketing Project and Work Experience Preparation. It’s been more challenging than usual because of a province-wide college strike in October-November. However, I’m extremely proud of the George Brown College student community who have been incredibly supportive of faculty during this very challenging semester for us all.
Facilitating learning @ Canadian Marketing Association
Through the spring and summer of 2017, I designed a new Digital Marketing Analytics online course in collaboration with the Canadian Marketing Association. It launched in September. I’m facilitating it for the 1st time–so far so good.
Building everyday strength @ Blast Athletic Club
I turned 40 in July. A healthy lifestyle is important to me–I need a strong body and mind to perform at the highest level of what I do. While I regularly ride a bicycle to commute and for recreation, I haven’t worked on my overall body strength in a couple of years. A friend introduced me to Blast Athletic Club–an a-maz-ing part gym, part community! Coaches Marv and Graeme create a friendly, motivating (and still challenging AF) place where all abilities are welcome. On the wall it says “Strength Is For Everyone”…and they truly mean it.
