Whether you’ve just graduated from high school or are thinking of a career change, trying to decide which path to take can be daunting to say the least. Post-secondary education has become somewhat expected amongst many employers, but navigating through the seemingly endless course options is no easy feat.
Investing wisely in education is crucial for students carving their professional career path. And since many jump head first into a program and then realize it’s not for them, having an option to sample the classes beforehand may help prevent any future regrets.

- Introduction to Digital Marketing

Colin is the CEO / Managing Director of RED Academy. He originally started his career as a classically trained musician and sound engineer, before switching to the tech industry where he has been working for the past 15 years. While he sounds British, don’t let that accent fool you; his roots are Dutch, and he calls Amsterdam his hometown.
Also the founder of Drive Digital, one of Western Canada’s biggest digital agencies, Colin is inspired by watching people create and seeing them find fulfillment in doing something they believe in. Colin is excited by the idea that the Internet connects us all, increasing transparency and accountability. He strongly believes that purpose is a bigger driver in people than profit, which will lead us to a better, fairer, more conscious world – values that dictate the foundation of RED.
