Yes, I am a champion and a protector of the joy of learning. I am called to support mom and dad to give their love and time to the children. Their investment is an investment in a life for a life-time.

Hi Amy, Great to connect with you. I am doing my EBC certification with Fielding along with my Masters in OD. Its been wonderful experience getting back to school and I enjoy my learnings tremendously. I am hugely impressed by your initiative and capabilities in helping us connect and grow together via this forum. I am looking forward to build a similarly impressive online community in future and look forward to learn from you and others via this amazing network.

Hi Amy:

My question is a bit off topic, but I wanted to ask your experience of using the platform of Ning to host this incredible community.  

In my line of work, ecotourism, we are starting a community of consultants and thought about using Ning, but I am asking some community managers about their experience because I see a lot of negative comments regarding the service and functionality of the platform.  

I would greatly appreciate your opinion and recommendations. 

Best regards, 

Allan Rhodes
