Jim Garner - Interests:    I love working between technologies and people.  Many talk "tech" but others can't. I make it easy for Users, Students, Managers and Executives to understand the "geek talk" so that learning is easier, decisions are more diligent, and business-profitability is maximized through better appreciation of technology's benefits and far-reaching pitfalls.  Test me!

 

I have experience in Wind and Oil/Gas Energy Industries also.  Find out how I can help you leverage technology in this sector through automation, validation, and plain common-sense about double-entries!
