F. Brian Hidy
education, Bicycle Retail, and Project Management in Skaneateles, New York
I am a life long learner and educator. Throughout my career history, regardless of the industry, I have gravitated towards projects and opportunities that have some aspect of teaching, training, mentoring, and coaching. I started work in management in sales and marketing in the retail industry, and most recently I have been working in project management in the education sector. In my range of experience, I have worked with adults and adolescents with success at all levels. Most recently I have been working in public education, as a teacher, trainer, and software change management. I work with public school districts consulting, implementing, training, and supporting staff and administrators on educational software technology and the process of data collection, data conversion, data integration, and scheduling. I also continue work part-time in retail keeping my skills sharp as opportunities arise, primarily in the bicycle industry. My long term goal is to move into a more advanced opportunity which draws broadly from my background.
