I’ve been away from the blog for too long.  I’ve always been amazed at how our colleagues write such powerful blog posts – daily (Stephen Abram!).  I admit it – I can’t do it. Projects and clients and family and faith have been my focus for the past few months.  I have so much to say! So, projects or no, it’s time to get back to contemplating and sharing the insights we get while on these projects.

Projects will be much more manageable with Juanita Richardson on board. YEAH! We’re delighted that Juanita has joined D&J as an associate.  I’m supposed to put her “official photo” in this blog post, but I like this pic with Jane much better — it shows Jane and Juanita as they are — full of life and fun!  You can see the “official” one in the About Us section.

Juanita Richardson joins D&J from Richardson Jalakas & Associates – an information strategy company she founded in 1998.  Juanita has experience on both sides of the information industry.  Most recently, she worked for many years as Business Development Consultant for CEDROM-SNi.  Prior to that, she was  Manager of Licensing, Product Strategy and Client Services with InfomartDialog.  Before “crossing the street” she was Manager of the Business Information Centre for Deloitte & Touche and held positions in the Research Departments of Wood Gundy and ScotiaMcLeod.  She is an instructor at Seneca College’s Library and Information Technician program.
