Geoff Keochakian

Founder & Partner


Most collaboration projects need a technical expert – someone who can help design, manage, deploy and troubleshoot – as well as a professional trainer to make it work for your people.

As an experienced engineer & project manager and an industry-certified trainer, Geoff brings both to the table.

It's rare to find a professional with high-end skills on both ends, who can see the big picture. And has the people skills to make sure your collaboration goals become "that's just how we work." At all levels, from senior executives to front-line and service team members.

Geoff can help your corporation, small business, academic institution, school district and start-up get your work done better and faster, for less money.

Interactive technologies specialist Ellen Afromsky says: “Successful collaboration technology projects seamlessly integrate technology to enhance the way people work and learn together.” This is her goal with every client, from education to higher education and enterprise. Her favorite part of working with clients is to sit beside them as they work so she can recommend ideas to increase engagement, improve collaboration, and simplify workflows. She loves opportunities to help clients move beyond traditional, linear presentations, and help them get excited about global, collaborative thinking and the bigger possibilities that come from new brainstorming, mind mapping and new visualization tools.

As the NYC Briefing Center Manager for SMART Technologies, Ellen expanded her expertise to achieve results for enterprise clients from architecture, engineering, construction and design review. As well, she is passionate about leading-edge educational movements like collaborative classrooms and Self Organized Learning Environments (SOLE). 

She enjoys creating opportunities for thoughtful practitioners and talented student artists to come together, and has a particular interest in the changing workplace.
