Travelling in Sri Lanka

Hello, my name’s Richard, great to meet you!

You might be wondering what this website is all about.  I created Sight of the Navigator for a number of reasons, mostly to do with my interest in travel and transportation, but also because…..

  • I’m looking to work for a great company in the Travel / Transport area.
  • I wanted to learn how to program a website.
  • I want to help people Travel confidently.
  • I think Transport is a growth market, but it’s advantages can be a well kept secret.

If you’re looking for someone to fill an opportunity in your company, perhaps my experience below will be a good match?

My Professional Experience

Project Management – For iBAHN I installed over 5000 hotel bedrooms around Europe with High Speed Internet, understanding IP and how the Internet works in the process.

Technical Sales – Also for iBAHN I provided Consultancy advice during the Sales process to ensure revenue was maximised when our service was installed.

Production Management – For Streamline Studios in Amsterdam I managed the content creation for video game titles such as “Terminator: Salvation”, and “Wanted: Weapons of Fate”.  I also made it on to www.imdb.com for Streamline’s very own HoopWorld game!

Business Development – I helped Miovision Technologies open their first office outside of Canada, and then substantially grew the business and customer base across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  I also took care of hiring, budgets, and reporting.
