Over the summer, the wonder that is LinkedIn caused a bit of a stir for me when I updated my profile to reflect the new company I worked for, Syntricate. Many people wanted to know about this mysterious new job that I was moving to, when in fact, I wasn’t moving at all. AccessData was simply spinning off it’s training division to a new company, named Syntricate.
In effect, it wasn’t a new job, it was the same job, only the company name was changing. I felt kind of bad for causing a stir on social media, but we wanted to get the new company name out there as much as we could, thus the updated profile, and the recurring explanations.
Now, however, things will be different. I am in my final week working for Syntricate. The next time I update my LinkedIn profile, it will be for real. I will be the eDiscovery Training Manager for Nuix starting on December 15.
There is, what I hope will be, a tremendous opportunity to take over the eDiscovery training program as it currently exists at Nuix and form it into a robust, challenging, and helpful curriculum. I am looking forward to steering the program into a training program that benefits all of the users of Nuix and the eDiscovery industry as a whole and building a team that can help me accomplish that goal. Obviously, I’m going in a bit blind at this point, so I don’t yet know what it will end up looking like, but I am definitely excited for the possibilities and energized by the work to be done. Of course, first, that will mean learning the Nuix platform, inside and out, myself! 😉
I am sure that learning the platform and turning that into a solid training program will result in few thoughts that turn into blog posts as well, so I might show up here with a few more eDiscovery thoughts than I have in recent months, but this will also still be the creative outlet for talk of technology and social networking, etc. just as it has for the last 13 years. (13 years?!?!? Wow!)
Also, before anyone asks, no we are DEFINITELY NOT MOVING AGAIN. I’ll still be working remotely from here in lovely Oregon and traveling when needed. That’s not changing any time soon.
In the mean time, if you’re a Nuix customer and have taken the eDiscovery training from Nuix, or would even consider it, I’d love to hear your thoughts. What did you like, what didn’t you like, what would you like to see? Starting a new job is such an exercise in information gathering, might as well try to gather it from wherever I can!
