MCTS, MCITP

Richard has trained many hundreds of end users and SharePoint professionals since beginning his career as a trainer. His dynamic personality, sense of humor and engaging teaching style ensures that students remain interested and entertained so they remember the material they've learned in class. Besides his talents as a professional instructor and coach, Richard brings a wealth of real-world technology experience to class. Before his time as a full-time trainer, Richard worked as a network designer and systems architect for a number of small and medium businesses. Along the way, Richard has always specialized in solving the real-world user adoption and end-use problems commonly faced by any organization who implements client/server platforms. His deep understanding of operating systems and server environments has been a substantial benefit to many of ASPE’s SharePoint training clients. When he works with clients, Richard also keeps an eye out for opportunities for automation, which often adds an increased layer of throughput and efficiency when trained teams return to work. It is also worth noting that Richard has extensive vertical experience training technology users in the healthcare sector, where the high demand for sharing records and documents in a virtual environment is a natural fit for SharePoint. Richard has many years of experience helping healthcare organizations set up these SharePoint environments, and is an expert at analyzing and addressing the complex needs of intranets and document sharing in healthcare organizations.
