July 2009 - Too Hot To Handle
Dear friends and colleagues,
 
The Maltese Summer is taking its toll; trust me we are really looking forward to our short but much deserved break in August. The last month was once again jam packed with activities and all sorts of work.
The end of June was marked with Cogknow being launched to the local business sector. In this issue you will also find information on our new eLearning tutoring course for teachers and student teachers.

Until soon,
Angele

Visit Us in Puglia

We are proud to announce that AcrossLimits opened a new representative office in Italy. The new branch, which is under the direction of Dr Giuseppina Nardò, is situated in the northern part of the Puglia region, more precisely in Foggia.

In the end of June, Angele visited the location and held meetings with various organizations to seek future collaboration and networking. The meetings were very successful and prospects towards forging new alliances look very positive.

Testimonial for Edward Debono Institute

University of MaltaAngele Giuliano, has been selected as one of the Alumni Testimonials for the Edward Debono Institute at the University of Malta.

'Being already deeply immersed in the business world, both locally and in Europe, the Masters in Innovation gave me an added insight into both the potential futures, and also in how to see my present from under different coloured hats (with acknowledgment to Dr De Bono!).' declared Angele.

The AcrossLimits director said "This course helped me to find a more innovative and creative approach when dealing with challenges. It keeps me alert to new opportunities"

Ms Giuliano's first degree focused on the cross between commerce and technology and her Masters dissertation tackled the policies of digitisation of cultural heritage in the Mediterranean. She also led a 15-strong team to win the coveted Euro-Med Multimedia Award in 1998. Angele lectures at the Computer Information Systems Department at the University of Malta.
