Chris has worked in many different aspects of IT for over 30 years. Chris became interested in how IT systems and apps are created and supported, leading to an active involvement in new uses for IT in small organisations and education. Chris has been facilitating since 2000 and widened his practice to include online groups and meetings in 2008. He started working with VIDM in its second year and joined the committee in 2011. Chris has used his IT experience to support how VIDM is organised and run, and his facilitation skills to support the volunteer facilitators during the conference itself.
