About Us for Education
At Refined Data, we humanize technology by providing software solutions in three core service areas:
- Risk and Sustainability
- eLearning and Virtual Classroom Live Content Delivery
- Learning Management Systems
Our clients span the globe and include multinational corporations, universities, government departments, accreditation bodies, real estate firms, consultancies, and property management firms — all of whom are leveraging our technology to make data driven decisions, connect communities, and enable authentic learning, communication, and collaboration.
Our Refined Risk product line enables property managers to capture, analyze, and report on large volumes of data to make informed decisions, meet regulatory compliance requirements, identify considerable cost savings and operational efficiencies, and track environmental impact, OH&S factors, and environmental risk.
In the Learning space we provide virtual learning and training solutions for data and course management and reporting as well as live course delivery that mimics the face to face classroom setting, maximizing facilitator and learner engagement, and capturing learner metrics of success.
It’s our goal to build a connected and sustainable world by creating innovative technology solutions that enable business management, and enhance awareness, collaboration, discovery, and growth.
Our Core Values
To build a connected and sustainable world by creating technology solutions that enable collaboration, discovery, and growth.
To deliver results for our clients, their students, and their employees that are not just more cost effective and socially responsible solutions, but smarter solutions that enable authentic and long-lasting learning.
Officially, I’m CEO of Refined Data but what I love doing most are all those “un-executive” things in pursuit of the next big idea. I love listening to clients as they share their points-of-pain and, sometimes, their ideas for products and services that exist in concept only. I find myself connecting-the-dots to find those secret short cuts. I love learning, both personally and socially, and in a world where technological change is happening at an exponentially rapid pace, there are always new things to learn, new dots to connect and new tools to make yesterday’s “impossible”, tomorrow’s “possible.” This philosophy has been honed over 32 years owning and running two successful businesses, each of which has been an innovation leader in its field. I want to find better ways to help people learn, communicate and collaborate. It may sound corny, but sometimes you need to look at old problems in new ways. Software isn’t always the answer. Sometimes it’s all in how you approach the challenge.
As President of Refined Data Solutions, I am focused on combining my passion for innovation and sustainability with an unwavering commitment to maintaining and nurturing strong client relationships. I manage the negotiation and execution of contracts and sales for our Refined Risk Group and work closely with our development team to continue enhancing the Risk Platform with new features and functionality. For as long as I can remember I’ve been interested in nature and sustainability. My studies and career are an extension of that early passion, which is a key outcome of the Risk platform because I’d started as a hydro-geologist, cleaning up contaminated sites. As an entrepreneur and founder of three ventures, I am committed to life-long learning which is what fuels my passion at Refined Data. I truly believe that at Refined Data we are creating authentic connections for clients so that they too can engage and inspire others.
