Why (And How) Libraries Are Getting Reinvented


I love books; the weight in my hand, the captivating book cover that makes me wonder with curiosity about what is held within, and the simple mechanics of turning a page.

But I am also a digital junkie. My smartphone beeps with sounds that are pinging, dinging, and popping 24 hours a day.

And let’s not forget the apps; I have one for just about everything! My personalized Chrome pages contain bookmarks, apps, and extensions to fuel my inner desire to click and explore.

But I wasn’t always like this. By age I am definitely a digital immigrant, but my behavior to consume, curate, and create are definitely that of a digital native.

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for www.3aaa.co.uk where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
