This week’s Business Web Practices lecture features Dale Chumbley, a real estate professional with a passion and successful track record with digital marketing and social media. I first encountered Dale several years ago at an event of technology professionals and was impressed by the presentation he did about wildly successful social media web project, 365 Things to Do in Vancouver, WA. I hope you will get the opportunity to join us on Weds. 11/17/16 at 4:30 in Foster Auditorium to learn how a business professional developed a relationship with technology that has proven to be quite successful.

I’m truly thankful for the professional network that I have worked hard to build and maintain, pay off not for me but for my students. What do I mean by this? I’m seeing graduates from programs at Clark College going to work for companies and organizations that started with some “matchmaking” and introductions from my network. There’s no greater feeling in the world than seeing a graduate enter the workforce. I’m truly blessed.
This week’s Business Web Practices lecture features two individuals with strong ties to Clark College; CTEC and CGT adjunct instructor Fellene Gaylord and Web Development program graduate Christine Watson. Both will share tales of their career journeys with a stress on how successful careers in the world of the web require one to be fluid, open to change, and be willing to regularly develop and expand their skill sets.
Hope to see you on Weds. 11/2/16 at 4:30 in Foster Auditorium at Clark College in Vancouver, Washington.

This week, Jane Croft will be giving a talk entitled “The Importance and Role of Quality Assurance in Software Development” as part of the Clark College Business Web Practices Speaker Series. Jane is a returning to our speaker series for her second time. The talk she gave last year was one of my favorites.
Here is some information about Jane:
I am an Anthem (formerly WellPoint) associate with over 8 years of dedicated service and over 25 years in healthcare. Because of my strong organizational, resource and project management skills on multiple complex projects and initiatives, I am considered among the best Quality Assurance leaders. Advocating quality and best practices of Information Technology testing and LEAN Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) methodology has given me the opportunity to be a part of building new testing organization at Anthem with the QA Management Team. I aspire to be a Test Architect leading into Test Management and/or Project Management with CSQA and/or PMI certification by year 2015-2016 and become a paid public speaker advocating for the deaf communities.

Yesterday Cheryl Bledsoe, Technology & Accreditation Manager at Clackamas County Communications, delivered an outstanding talk at Clark College. I have seen many talks on social media, but none of them ever resonated with me the way in which the stories Cheryl shared did. This talk is a “much watch” for any company, organization, educator or person who utilizes one or more of the plethora of social media platforms. I would also encourage you to share it with your friends, colleagues, and family.
Here is the schedule of speakers as well as videos of past speakers. Also, please subscribe to Business Web Practices Speaker Series YouTube channel.
Cheryl, on behalf of Clark College, thank you!

The title of Cheryl’s talk is “The Ubiquity of Social Media and Social Media as a Social Service”.

This event will take place on Wednesday, October 12, 2016, at 4:30 PM in Foster Auditorium at Clark College. All are welcome.
Here is some more information about Cheryl:
Cheryl Bledsoe is the Technology Manager for the Clackamas County 911. She is also the Executive Director of the Virtual Emergency Management Association (www.virtualema.org) which aims to build partnerships between emerging technical companies, emergency services and higher education. Cheryl first became familiar with social media as the Southwest Washington. She has been responsible for implementing local, regional and state social media footprints which have included policy development, website redesign and managing blogs, Facebook and Twitter communications. Her most notable accomplishments have included the development of Virtual Operation Support Teams (VOST) to monitor social media during incidents of national and international significance and her creation of 30 Days, 30 Ways which has been one of the largest online social media games running each September during National Preparedness Month since 2010. She speaks regularly at national conferences, consults with government agencies and provides training to diverse audiences. Despite her incredible resume, she is probably best known for accidentally creating the hashtag #CookingWithCheryl by burning hard-boiled eggs, marrying her geeky fingerpainting partner from kindergarten at the Church of Elvis and, despite believing she would never have children, has spawned two little humans that are the light of her life.
The one thing I absolutely love about my job as an instructor is the ability to share my experiences working in corporate America, starting an open source community for IBM, producing a podcast, owning a successful software startup and being involved with social media since 2002. I have seen and experienced it all. The good, bad and ugly. Sharing these experiences resonates with students.
Thank you to all of you who have been part of my journey
