Business ethics training now viewable

Business Ethics, Code of Conduct,” a sample training program from Green Streets MediaTrain is now available for review at the company’s eLearning Hub. Presented by employment law attorney, Chuck Passaglia, this product has been developed in a generic format that can be customized and branded by participating companies wanting to offer trainings to employees.

“Versions of programming like this have been added to our course list so they can be customized for participating companies in a cost-effective way,” states Glenn Meyers, executive programming producer for the company.

Chuck Pasasaglia

Passaglia is highly regarded for compliance and ethics trainings he has provided for businesses, organizations and governmental entities.

A number of his compliance programs can be viewed as short demos for no charge at Green Streets LMS (log in as a guest).

New media at work

When one conjures the many communication tools today at their disposal, it is not a far leap to imagine what new media is, how it works, and its path of distribution. This is especially so when considering the many new kinds of media players commonly available, from touch screen iPhones to e-readers bringing up-to-date news from all parts of the world, to miniature MP4 players featuring wide screen high definition platforms.

New media then, represents the way an individual designs and constructs the information they wish to send to others whether the audience be intimate or vast. Here are two examples of new media products we have developed, some for training purposes, others for branding purposes.

Regardless of how challenging or unusual any new media presentation is, the overall quality of the work being shown has to be high. People will forgive certain errors in speech, writing, music, photography, or any other media, but not shoddy or ill-conceived work. Nobody has the time to waste.

Examples of Internet radio

These programs were produced for Newmont Mining in Ghana and were run on the company’s website:

This is a good way to deliver meaningful and timely information quickly — either via website or blog — while keeping production expenses low.

This methodology also has great promise for the many new mobile devices like smart phones, Kindles, etc. Drawbacks: if you want to spice up your production with visuals and the like, costs usually increase and the number of receiving devices that can play your work shrink.

A better kind of office: Alberta Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park

Welcome to this introductory post concerning my video and multimedia work. My role in the development of these products has either been producer, writer, or both. The links and photos I provide for these works reveal a range of styles, formats, and executions. More important, they show some of the remarkable individuals I have had the pleasure of meeting, and places I have seen. I shall begin with a six-minute demo for my previous company, The 21st Communications Company.

After founding Green Streets, I have produced a number of short news clips pertaining to sustainability. This includes a closeup look at the world of trash, art pieces and couture hewn from the trashcan, and the composting of food waste  where worms have the role of heroes.
