Let’s start understanding the digital ecosystem at the beginning – in the classroom.

The digital ecosystem is constantly evolving. Ten years ago we only imagined what a quantum computer could produce. Now they are driving the next level of innovation. This means the Digital [R]Evolution™ will start in the classroom and move to the boardroom through artificial intelligence, robotics and individual micro-targeting personalization.


Connecting the dots between what was and what will be in a digital world.

There has never been a more immersive experience and opportunity than to research how digital technology will continue to shape our lives. This level of change is what is meant by a Digital [R]Evolution™ and how it impacts our manufacturing capabilities, education, commerce, and you.

Digital Marketing Strategies

It’s time to look at the pain points of business and craft a method of relieving those issues.

Whether it is falling productivity, low employee engagement, or declining sales, these pain points are symptoms of bigger issues. If your organization is not optimally structured, or it is not designed to capture benefits from the Digital [R]Evolution™, that’s good news for your competition.

Educational Leadership

Digital transformation strategies arise from trends in technology and consumer behaviour.

There are so many areas of business that we grow up thinking we know. Whether in the classroom or the boardroom, understanding the leading edge of 4IR of business, consumer behaviour and social media has never been more significant. Help is here.

Higher education and adult learning can be mutually rewarding.

As a facilitator in higher education at Georgian College and York University, there are times that one feels isolated and alone when delivering remote education. By building a community in the classroom, one based on mutual respect, honesty and common goals, many of the challenges such as academic misconduct seem to disappear. Learning to engage groups of learners is essential moving forward.
