Kirk Trickett​​

Building a Clean Classroom Training Solution…and filling all classes on day one​

Collaboration with our Talent Department has been a dream here at Thirty-One Gifts through repeated deliveries of high-quality, high-use SharePoint solutions. Our values of flexibility, accountability, and hard work are the secrets to repeating success, and delivering top quality solutions in weeks, not months.
Thirty-One University is our central online training portal, complete with its own logo and corporate branding. On the first day this SharePoint registration system went online, we filled all classes for the next 2 months before the end of the day! ​​

We will talk through this complete SharePoint training / event scheduling solution; discussing what led to success, and avoided disaster along the way. This 6-8 week solution can be considered for your organization with just one developer / IT professional using basic SharePoint lists, Nintex Workflow, and a touch of InfoPath forms for good measure. 
Kirk is a Sr. SharePoint Developer at Thirty-One Gifts. He has an MBA in e-Business with over 20 years of experience delivering business solutions for the State of Ohio, financial, and retail companies. 
For the past four years, he has focused on delivering commercial SharePoint solutions across multiple industries from Charlotte, NC to Columbus, OH. Focused on helping bring up IT talent in the community, he taught CompTIA certification training at night from 2013 – 2015. Kirk also volunteers as a career coach as part of the Columbus Crossroad Career organization.
