A few years ago, I was hired as a course developer for a program in Cloud Strategy and Governance. Rick was assigned to guide us a professional course designer. He paid attention to details and always had the perspective of the learner in mind. This is very critical to ensure an outcome based development to enrich the experiences of the learner. Furthermore, he helps in validating the evaluative components of the course to ensure a comprehensive and balanced assessment of the content.

Over the last 7 years I have jumped at every opportunity to work with Rick. Not only is he incredibly thoughtful in instructional design work and managing projects, he's been a fantastic mentor for me in my career. Rick has a knack for choosing the right people to collaborate with and ensuring all projects meet or exceed deadlines.

It was a pleasure working alongside Rick to develop the curriculum and all the learning material for a new Clinical Research post graduate program at York University School of Continuing Studies. Rick kept the team of 6 instructors organized. Whenever we ran into any issues or discussions Rick was always helpful in reminding us of the big picture and the best way forward. Rick allowed us to focus on developing dynamic and interactive courses that flowed well from one to the other. This made for a strong program that students are appreciating and getting a lot of value from. It has been such a pleasure working with Rick over the last 3 years, his knowledge, calm demeanor and "can do" attitude made all the difference to our success.
