Hi, I'm Dean, I'm a Project Management Professional (PMP) and corporate trainer with years of experience and heaps of education. Basically, I'm middle-aged and kinda nerdy. But, if you're curious about who this guy is...feel free to read on. As a Project Manager, I have managed multi-million dollar projects in the fields of construction, IT, and automotive recycling. Before that, I went to school for a very long time. First, I earned a diploma in Aeronautical Engineering Technology. (AET) from SAIT. Then I went to MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and they gave me: 1) Bachelor of Science, Mechanical Engineering 2) Master of Science, Mechanical Engineering 3) Master of Science, System Design and Management. Finally, I completed my coursework toward a Ph.D. in Project Management from the University of Calgary, Canada (where I still live with my wife, Tamara, and our family). Okay, so that's the boring stuff, what I also like to do is collect and tinker with vintage and unique vehicles--presently I am restoring 3 old Porsches and have just completed a '61 Vespa and a '61 T Bird. Recently, I took up tennis and golf (I guess that happens when you turn 50) and, when I can get away, you'll find me skiing in the Rocky Mountains or on a scuba diving vacation with my family. To learn more, check out our website, join our Dash Academy FB group, or find me on LinkedIn. Enough about me. Now, let's learn some project management...
