About

 About   pixpired is an initiative of Tammy Dewar of Calliope Learning and means visually (pix) inspired (pired).

Based on a 30 day visual blog challenge that began January 1, 2013, I decided to challenge my gremlins and see if I could capture my love of learning, leadership, coaching and life in general through visuals.

I grew up on a farm in Alberta, Canada and bring a down to earth, entrepreneurial and hopeful attitude to my teaching, coaching and consulting. Having been the only one in my large extended family of hundreds to complete a PhD, I encourage and challenge people to transcend whatever limitations they may think they have. I have lived in many cities in Canada, the US and the UK, but now call Victoria, Canada home, and am committed to living a balanced and sustainable life with my husband and business partner, Dave Whittington.

I have over 20 years of experience working with leaders and teams at all levels in both the public and private sectors.  I am a passionate educator who integrates theory and practice into creative, engaging and thought provoking learning experiences.  I integrate visuals into my work as a leader, trainer, facilitator and coach. I can help you do the same through my consulting services and products.

I hope you follow my blog and receive your daily hit of pixpiration (visual inspiration)!
