Hi all
After browsing these forums before and finding some useful information, thought it time to register.

I have a training and development background but these uncertain economic times find me working as a technical writer using MS SharePoint - what fun.

I am into music, and by extension hi-fi, and also home theatre.

I'm a Windows PC user, running XP Pro and Office '07. I use Windows mobile on my cell - on the Telecom (but not XT) network.

On a personal level, apart from music, I'm into football ("soccer"), digital photography, cycling and my family.

Glad to hear people are still making a living in L&D! I had about 15 unsuccessful interviews after being made redundant last year - training is often the first thing to go, if your L&D department isn't very good a measuring ROI.

But just this week I had a call back from a company who I interviewed with in February for an L&D Advisor role, only to be told they didn't actually have a position open (er, so why did they advertise in the paper?). Perhaps things are looking up...
