We are going to hear from Lynn Hand, the Executive Director of the non-profit organization, Family Education Centre in the Toronto area. She has so much knowledge to share and such a passion for what she does and who she serves – it’s infectious!
Lynn and I met through a client who I also call a friend, Grace Churchill and we just fit perfectly! Over a 4 month period, I developed and designed their online learning/membership website that houses 12 online courses, I’m now working with them to create 4 new courses that are highly interactive for the adult learner and we already have a few other projects we’re going to tackle in the next couple of years!
Working with Lynn and her team at the FEC has been amazing! I appreciate them all so much.
