Our AR Workshop

I was just so very proud of our Team on Monday afternoon! Sam, Christine, Meiks, Peter and Matt – you are all legends. Thank you.

After an intense evening of collaboration to bring 6 separate presentations together into a final workshop presentation that “flowed” and covered all the bases, we nailed it. It was an undeniably ambitious goal to complete a full day’s workshop content in 3 hours, using an agmented reality tour of the local area that had actually been put together in Jan’s office in Perth using internet research and Google maps (a brave move)… and including a new colleague we had never met face-to-face before. We probably should have tried to build a Hadron Collider instead. However, thanks to everyone’s good preparation, professionalism, personal “agility” and sense of humour it was a great success. It has been a thorough pleasure to work with Dr Matt Dunleavy. His flexibilty, attention to detail, outstanding content, rapport with audience,  love of pizza, quick wit and sense of humour immediately won us over. We had about 20 participants from many countries so luckily we all knew the software well enough to help participants even though the button tags were in foreign languages. Such a great learning experience for us, and good feedback from them. Plenty of happy smiling faces and inspired minds – and that’s always the goal 🙂

We think our new mate Dr Matt was probably pretty happy with our promo of his FreshAiR app and research ....and the enthusiastic participant from Mexico was delighted with the new teaching tool :-)
