Professional

I have spent most of my career working 30 years with IBM. During that time I was a program, a systems planner and architect, a technical sales consultant, and represented IBM at many user groups in USA, Europe, Asia and South America.

After leaving IBM in 2000, I ran my own international consulting company, worked as a technical writer, was the sales manager for New South Wales and Queensland for an international education company, and have recently retired.

Problem-Solver

Throughout my career, I have been the front line for solving problems. While at IBM, I worked in both product development, solving general problems, and in sales, solving problems specific to each customer. I also designed, developed, wrote, documented, and sold three program products that generated about $250,000 in revenue.

Since IBM, I have been a patent consultant, a sales manager, and an author, each a different format of solving the problems people face in their jobs and in life.

Manager

For a year, I was the branch manager for an international educational corporation. There I managed a small staff of employees, 30 program leaders, and 150 other volunteers.

Later, I was the state sales manager for a much larger branch of the same corporation, accountable for the training, development, and performance of 130 program leaders and 75 program leaders in-training. While there, the branch was one of the largest and most successful in the world.

This year, I finally wrote and published the book I always wanted to write, “Get More Done, In Less Time, With More Fun and Less Worry”.

He is both creative and systematic. Both detailed and visionary. Perhaps of most value, he has a way of bringing out the best in others, which when teamed with his best, can produce extraordinary results. He has a particular savvy at recognizing valuable intellectual property of both individuals and companies, and helping them to develop those ideas to deliver business results.

Besides those unusual skills, Jim makes work fun, inspiring and full of life and energy. People are at their best when they are passionate about what they do and feel like they are making a difference….Jim is not only committed to doing that himself, but makes sure everyone around him has a profound experience of the same.

Jim Vincent is indeed a very special individual . His wealth of knowledge is unsurpassed by anyone I have met in business. There is no problem he cannot solve, there is no technology he cannot understand, there is no organisation that he cannot help.
I would highly recommend Jim as both a person and as a technology thought leader.

I worked around Jim for six months. And when I say ‘around’, I mean that Jim was at the centre of all things problem-solving, in regards to internal systems development or for the benefit of external clients. There’s really no challenge that Jim can’t calmly and efficiently address, through the use of his beautiful mathematical mind and an empathy for the needs of others.

And Jim’s office presence is extremely positive; you just get the vibe that no matter what challenges are occurring, Jim’s ‘got this’. Oh, and for comic relief, ask Jim—he also provides when its needed. It’s a true sign of a bloke who loves his fields of specialty and savours any opportunity to exercise those skills.

The level of intellect and dedication Jim applies to all aspects of work is immeasurable. If humans have an ON or OFF switch, Jim’s is constantly ON. I have witnessed him work on the most complex of analytical tasks immanagable and he still manages to have fun, laugh and show genuine ethusiasam for what he does and the people he works with.

He gives testiment to the fact people can work hard and have fun at the same time. This makes him a insperarational assest in any leadership or team role. Look forward to working with Jim again someday.

Patents

Patent 1

Method of scheduling meetings

 

US5197000A

 

An improved method of scheduling a meeting among terminal users who are provided with calendaring applications for storing and retrieving timed and dated events. A prompting screen is presented to a meeting scheduler with blanks for keying in desired times, dates, and prospective attendees for a meeting. In response to the schedulers keying to this screen, a comparison is made with the calendar of events for each prospective attendee. As a result of the nonavailability of a meeting time which complies with the desired times, dates and attendees, these factors are automatically altered or “relaxed” in order to achieve an acceptable meeting time. An option list of meeting times is then presented to the scheduler for selection of a meeting time. Based upon the selection of the scheduler, a meeting notification screen is then constructed for transmittal to each attendee.

Patent 2

Annotated calendar assembly

A method of assembling, for display, a monthly calendar annotated with exterior current day narrative notes and embedded abbreviated notes. Notes related to a specific day can be prepared on a time independent basis by calling, and keying to, a day screen for the specific day. In addition, keying is used to distinguish between normal and special notes which are to be later displayed in abbreviated and narrative forms, respectively. Upon the occurrence of the specific day and the calling of a calendar screen, the notes are displayed along with an updated calendar. Special notes appear as narrative footnotes and normal notes appear in abbreviated form with the day indications. In the absence of further day screen calling and keying, the footnotes change on a daily basis, while the abbreviated notes remain fixed.

Patent 3

Meeting scheduler with alternative listing

An improved method of scheduling a meeting among terminal users who are provided with calendaring applications for storing and retrieving times and dated events. A prompting screen is presented to a meeting scheduler with blanks for keying in desired times, dates, and prospective attendees for a meeting. In response to the schedulers keying to this screen, a comparison is made with the calendar of events for each prospective attendee. As a result of the nonavailability of a meeting time which complies with the desired times, dates and attendees, certain of these factors are automatically altered or “relaxed” in order to achieve an acceptable meeting time. An option list of meeting times is then presented to the scheduler for selection of a meeting time. Based upon the selection of the scheduler, a meeting notification screen is then constructed for transmittal to each attendee.

Patent 4

Method for providing information security protocols to an electronic calendar

A method of controlling the unauthorized disclosure of classified data that is used to describe an event that has been calendared in an electronic calendaring application of an interactive information handling system in which the calendar owner assigns a security classification to an event as it is being calendared. The classification assigned is pre-established by an information security protocol that is either unique to the calendar function or a more comprehensive information security system for the organization. The security classes are pre-established by the system. When the calendar data is presented in a format that allows event descriptions to be readable such as when a day calendar is viewable on the display terminal or in a printed copy, an overall security lable is displayed and printed out when the display is converted to hard copy. The period covered by the security label generally corresponds to the period that is selected for viewing. The security classification displayed is the highest security class of any of the event descriptions that are displayed. Data structures are established for each calendar entry which store the data in the system. These data structures are scanned to determine the overall classification that is displayed for the day calendar. Since a readable security classification label is automatically applied, regardless of whether the calendar presentation is on the display screen or in hard copy, all of the requirements of the established information security system are met and the electronic calendaring application need not be treated as an exception to the information security system. The method allows each calendar user on the system that has an assigned permission level to view classified event descriptions at or below his or her assigned security level with a security label automatically displayed or printed.

Patent 5

Calendar event description abbreviation

A method of building a monthly calendar screen having abbreviated event descriptions directly translated from event descriptions on day screens. Day screens are built from keyed in dates, times, and descriptions of events related to the dates and times. Monthly screens are built by combining and abbreviating corresponding day screens. Keying and coding during day screen building, and processing steps during monthly screen building are reduced by positionally locating the first characters of day screen event descriptions, time-wise, within the monthly screens.
