When I heard about Greg being seriously ill and that he was planning to leave Brookes I sent him this message:
I’ll miss you very much. Nobody is able to tease me with as much ease as you do, and your sharp yet very calm and balanced view on things that matter is one in a million. It’s much appreciated – not only by me, I’m absolutely sure.
Greg was my guide in all things online learning design. We worked together on Course Design Intensives in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, and a variety of Learning Technology related agendas. Brookes felt so much emptier without his reassuring presence. After saying goodbye to Brookes, he taught me an important lesson about ‘how to live your life’ by sending a YouTube link with the message: Here is the cockpit video of me in the Lamborghini at Monza.
