I have been working in emergency management and response for 30+ years
– and for the past 10+ years I have been a crisis and emergency management advisor to the offshore oil, gas, and marine industry worldwide. During that time I have always engaged myself in continous learning, which has lead to a number of internationally recognized qualifications and a MSc degree in disaster mitigation.
However, time has though come to the point where I am limiting my work related travels, as that allows me to be at home more frequently and doing all the small things on daily basis that makes a family more happy. To accomplish that I have now departed on the transition journey of turning my outgoing consulting and training services into online coaching and consulting, as well as offering industry specific e-learning courses.
Therefore, when providing online courses and consulting services I can combine the knowledge and skills gained from my emergency and disaster qualifications and my 25+ years of experience as instructor and training officer with my interest for working with computers and in particular video graphics, and thereby fulfil my desire for helping people on a larger scale.
