      5 Minutes with...Your IIBA® Calgary Chapter Board Member


  Reg Cracknell

   Introducing Your New Chapter Director of Education:  Eno Eka

    

     What motivated you to volunteer with IIBA® Calgary Chapter?

  • I was motivated to volunteer with the Calgary Chapter as I wanted to give back to the Business Analysis community and help other aspiring Business Analysts. I was also inspired by the existing volunteers who passionately lead the affairs of the Chapter. From my first chapter meeting, I felt at home and knew that I wanted to be a part of this chapter for a long time to come.

     What value does your Board position/portfolio provide to our Chapter members?

  • As Director of Education, I will be leading the educational and professional development of the members of the Chapter for Certification and Recertification, guiding them towards getting their PDUs and CDUs through the study groups and professional development day activities. My goal is to increase the awareness of the chapter activities, especially around education, and to help aspiring Business Analysts become certified whilst gaining knowledge to help them stand out in the Calgary job market.

     What is your favorite hobby?

  • My favorite hobby is reading, I read a book every week.

     What book/podcast would you recommend to our members?

  • Podcast:  Mastering Business Analysis by Dave Saboe

     What tip, trick, or advice can you suggest that will help your fellow BAs succeed?

  • Make sure you are documenting your achievements as this will help you grow in your career either through promotions or new jobs. Also, make sure that you are continuously improving your skills and knowledge, the Business Analysis role is very dynamics and you need to keep up with global trends.
