Timothy Calunod Joins Learn iT! to Help Solidify #1 SharePoint Training Team in California!

SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., May 3, 2010 — For Timothy Calunod, an average work-day, following his cup of Joe, might involve writing course content, collaborating with the sales team, working with clients to deliver the best practices, and integrating Learn iT!’s expertise to help Microsoft and other MS Partners learn Sharepoint, a tremendous productivity tool.

Learn iT! hired Timothy, following his six solid years at QuickStart Intelligence, to catapult the organization toward becoming the leading SharePoint Training company in the world, gaining Timothy’s nearly ten years’ SharePoint experience. Three weeks into his new role as the Technology Lead in SharePoint, Calunod discusses driving the SharePoint courses at Learn iT!, where he can make use of the resources to expand the program.

The collaboration between Calunod and Learn iT! aims to enhance one of the company’s most popular programs. Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) is one of the fastest growing Microsoft products. Rather than relying on separate systems, MOSS supplies a suite of server capabilities that supports intranet, extranet, and Web applications within one built-in platform. With the recent release of Office Sharepoint Server 2010, Learn iT! and Calunod strive to meet the tremendous demand by improving the SharePoint experience for students.

Calunod’s achievements include numerous on-site and custom training solutions throughout the Bay Area for clients including Union Bank of California, Chevron, Cisco Systems, and Sony Pictures Entertainment. In addition to his professional accomplishments, he holds a degree in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University, where he completed a “short story novel” born from his two passions, humanity and technology. The creative writer-poetic soul-improv member turned Technology Lead offers this on his conversion. “I seemed to have a knack for it,” he says.

The SharePoint instructor refers to the similarities between the “powerful tool” of successful dialogue in fiction to a typical day in his work-week. As a SharePoint trainer, Calunod wants to avoid talking for the sake of talking. A large part of his job requires knowing how to readily respond with feedback to his students.

“I find that the key is having a good balance between the creative and the technical,” Calunod says. The remark signals a teacher who understands not only the technical terminology but recognizes the humanity within each student, ensuring that students get the ultimate value from their SharePoint experience.
