TVOntario was in the process of reinventing itself under a dynamic new CEO and looking for new ideas. While working as a video editor, Don came forward with an idea for a corporate community of practice based on an electronic Bulletin Board System (BBS), which also solved a serious technical problem of email file exchange between Macs and PCs.
Three months (and several proposals) later, Don was leading a self-directed work team whose mission became taking TVOntario into the Internet era, which they successfully accomplished within a year, paving the way for a series of international awards for innovative online content.
- concept, proposal, budget and hiring for the Online Group
- initial platform selection and later extension to the Internet
- internal/external education, promotion and business development
Deliverables included a corporate bulletin board system (finally retired 13 years later) and a company website (now several websites).
