While at London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC), I developed a Year in Review for the new portfolio of Facilities Management, Environmental and Support Services (FMESS). The new portfolio encompassed many departments and support service areas. I focused on the changes over the 2016-17 year, the great work being done, and visions for the future. We also included friendly congratulations and recognition for staff members who played vital roles throughout the year. The Year in Review was intended for a general audience, both at LHSC and outside the organization.
I worked closely with the Vice-President to develop the framework, with other staff to conduct research and develop the content, and compiled and wrote the content for the report. I also took many photos, profiling the human dimension of support services as much as possible. I designed the final layout in a package suitable for offset printing and online distribution.

I was also responsible for research and writing of the “Going Green” section, focused on environmental initiatives and tips for non-profit housing providers.

I was responsible for selecting photographs and videos to reflect the award winner narrative. This often required some creative use of stock photos to fill gaps as a result of too few or irrelevant photos from the award winner.

I was responsible for developing a fresh, new visual scheme for the Ontario Non-Profit Housing Association’s new blog. The site also needed to be user-friendly enough for other staff to create and edit their own posts.
Content was developed by other staff, while I provided copy editing and tagging for use on the blog.

I recorded a keynote presentation by Dr. Randy Frost, an expect on the issue of hoarding, for the Ontario Non-Profit Housing Association. Dr. Frost asked that his slides be excluded from the video, as they contained images of people’s private homes. I ran a line from the room mixer direct into the camcorder to get optimum sound quality.
