Hi all, I work out of the Canadian Defence Academy in Kingston Ontario, I’m currently the project lead for “Modernizing the NCM Corps Profession Development System”. The fun part of my job is defining the professional development for all Non Commission Members of the Canadian forces at the common education level. I also work with academic institutions to build self development pathways and certify occupations with their civilian counterparts. I’m an Masters Candidate at RRU in the Interdisciplinary program, and have a strong interest in personal informatics, digital leadership and the cultural effect of social media on organizations.
I’m usually found online on twitter as @ralphmercer or can be skyped as mercer.r and enjoy using the Social Web as an organizational accelerant to bring talented people with great ideas together to make a smarter community.
