Bio Thomas Schmitz
After studying electrical engineering I pursued my interest for physics and joined the Institute for Medicine at the Research Centre Jülich as a scientist in 1983. Radiation Biophysics, Proton Radiation Therapy and Nuclear Medicine were the fields I worked in.
Working in science meant being exposed to the latest computer technology, starting with an Apple III, the first IBM PC and various generations of workstations.
Presentations are the scientist’s way to communicate their work. Writing clear and concise presentations became my expertise. Whenever I could, I also kept control over the layout.
At the same time I became interested in organizing events and seminars, which give the framework to scientific presentations and discussions.
When I moved to Canada, I decided that it was time for me to leave science and apply my skills to private enterprise. I was intrigued by the artistic designing involved in creating marketing material and web-sites. It caters to my passion for presentations while making use of my skills in photography.
I started Simply Creative for You in 2000 as a consulting business for IT and marketing. Through this I got involved in a family business where I oversaw the selection and implementation of their first ERP System, created their initial Internet presence, created their first professionally designed catalogue and implemented a robust IT infrastructure.
In 2005 I signed on as full time employee in that company, at first being responsible for marketing, IT and administration and eventually becoming Chief Operating Officer in 2008.
I led the company through a re-branding and the implementation of the second ERP system. I worked on establishing a coherent company vision and solutions to establishing complete product lines. I kept close contact with the two major European supplier of the company. During the whole time I was still involved in marketing and documentation .
In 2012 I left the employment to develop further Simply Creative for You and to go further to concentrating on documentation and presentations. I hope to make photography a stronger element. I am also available to share my experience and expertise on the implementation of ERP Systems.
