A super short update of upcoming guests: analyst Andrew Reece, Dr Cynthia Lum, Dr Eric Piza, Dr Read Hayes and an analyst from the UK! A whole but of information about to come zipping your way. Stay tuned for information on signing up for two, hour long, webinars that I will be hosting, one in July and one in August.
My apologies to Andrew Reece for losing my own audio somehow. It did not track but we did get his side of things. Unfortunately, it means the great conversation we had needs to be redone. In the meantime, here is a one off for you. I provide updates on the Access course, upcoming guests, the state of things, my philosophy update and I break down what my logo's meaning and where it came from.
Just a short episode, since I was sick and had to postpone my interview, where I talk about upcoming guests, my new logo that you will start seeing around and how the work is going on the new version of UALE and a little bit more.
Stay tuned for upcoming guests Andrew Reece, Hillary Peladeau and Dr Cynthia Lum.
