Chad holds a BLA in Journalism from the University of Mississippi. He has worked as a sports anchor as well as a sports information director for a NCAA Division I athletic program and has also spent an extended period of time working at a restoration company on the East Coast. Chad has been with Next Gear since June of 2009 and has since developed into one of the senior trainers at NGS. He has conducted daily webinars and now has a role as an OnSite trainer. The communication skills he honed during his stint in the television industry, as well as public relations, have translated into his teaching and training techniques. Chad’s primary focus in teaching is that the users focus on the “Why” of the program instead of the “How”. He feels an understanding of the theory behind the program allows for the information to be absorbed and retained better.
