Starting a new venture: Bryan Alexander Consulting

Today is the beginning of new venture, as I launch Bryan Alexander Consulting.

Bryan introduces a new thiAs you might expect, this is a consulting enterprise.  BAC focuses on how technology transforms education.  To help people and institutions cope with and strategize this transition I perform a variety of services: presentations, speeches, workshops, meeting facilitating, futures exercises, webinars, white papers, reports, guides, all sorts of digital activities, and still more to come (here’s a hint).  You can find information about BAC services here.

Being futures-oriented, BAC work involves a great deal of continuous research, which my blogging on this very page reflects.  I share my thoughts and discoveries here, discussing topics with commentators and respondents, like a Web-based, real-time think tank.  That isn’t typical consulting practice, but I’m doing things a little differently.  This work will live on the open Web as far as people let me, here and elsewhere.

Launching this represents a huge change in my life.  BAC is now my more-than-full-time job.  And yet some things won’t alter as much.  I still live in Vermont and work from my home office, traveling frequently. I continue to serve as one of the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE) Fellows.  I continue my decades of work with liberal arts colleges, but now expand to engage with all of higher education.

Still, this is a big shift.  I’ve worked with NITLE for more than a decade.  Before that, I was a college professor.  Now… I’m inventing a new path forward, mixing together the skills and knowledge I’ve developed into a different form.  Call it a project, or an experiment, a 21st-century endeavor, or simply the enterprise upon which I now stake my career.

BAC already has a roster of clients, a wide-ranging schedule of speaking engagements, and publications in the pipeline, but I’m very glad to hear from you.  Use the comment box below or click to this private contact form to share your reactions, advice, requests, and expressions of interest.

Onward!

    Timeline is pretty tight. I’m trying to complete a script but having trouble making the leap between a couple concepts. Thinking you could add some insight. Do you have any time for a Skype or phone call between now and Friday evening?
    If not, no worries. We can catchup next week.

    From Jules Verne: “The Nautilus was piercing the water with its sharp spur, after having accomplished nearly ten thousand leagues in three months and a half, a distance greater than the great circle of the earth. Where were we going now, and what was reserved for the future?”

    I think the Captain is on course, and we’ll learn the answers to those questions soon enough.

    If you are ever within a hundred miles of WV, I’d love to hear you speak and could arrange an adventure holiday including the drown town and the 2nd biggest single arch bridge in the world (diving, rafting, hiking, and zip lines galore!)
