Who Is ShelleCaldwell?
First of all thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little better. I think it is difficult to really get to know someone through a blog alone but I will give it my best shot. I also invite you to connect with me through other social media channels (twitter & linkedin) I love meeting new people and sharing ideas. I believe there is much we can all learn from one another.
I am a Director of Collaboration and Regional Service Line Lead at Avanade. I have over 15 years of experience delivering business solutions to diverse organizations. For the past nine years I have focused on delivering SharePoint solutions in the enterprise and leading teams that have won outstanding achievements in Web Development.
In pursuit of continued innovative techniques I have recently been focusing in the areas of collaborative play (gamesotrming and innovation games), dialog and mind mapping to solve complex problems, total immersion and gamification to support user adoption and practical governance.
