About the presenter - Stephen Blyth
Stephen is a freelance project manager, writer and advisor from New Zealand.

Since 2007 Stephen has been helping people set up websites, choose software, run online meetings and use technology to achieve their organisations goals. The label technology steward comes closest to describing how he works offering advice, training and project management support.
Stephen understands how community groups work so he knows how to stay within tight budgets within organisations where people are the focus (not the tools). Prior to becoming self-employed he worked for government agencies for over a decade in community engagement, funding and capability building roles. In his spare time he tills the soil, climb trees with his two young children and squeeze in some volunteering with Wellington ICT. He writes about all this stuff at: www.commonknowledge.net.nz.
