1. So...who are you, and what do you do?

Neil Burgess, Associate.

2. With NVision since...?


3. What NVision project or outcome are you most proud of having been part of?

Online learning development, no question. We've developed some new approaches that you can teach online, even with limited bandwidth - and we've proven that they actually work! Being able to teach online allows participants to remain in the community with their families, and continue working. This saves a tremendous amount of money, and it's definitely more environmentally friendly.

4. Your secret obsession (music, author, movie, food?)

Kiteboarding and surfing.

5. Where’s the most interesting place you’ve ever visited?

Grise Fiord.

6. What do you enjoy most about working with the NVision team?

I think the best answer is a quote from our NVision Mission Statement - it's the term “joyful creativity”. The Online Learning Division loves tackling new projects that require a creative approach, whether we're talking about technology, or content, or instructional design.

7. What’s the last book you finished reading? What did you think?

Just finishing off "Barbarian Days, A Surfing Life", by William Finnegan. In another life, I might have just chosen to surf as well.

8. If you could have any superpower what would it be?

The ability to bring peace and love to the world.

9. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

“Everything in moderation” from my Mother. Although I’ve come to realize that “moderation” is flexible.

10. If you could host a dinner party and invite any three people (living or dead), who would they be and why?

Jesus Christ – for thoughts on our world.

Karl Marx – What were you thinking?

Nelson Mandella – How do we navigate from here?
