Chris Woodhouse has worked in many different aspects of IT for over 30 years. Chris became interested in how IT systems and apps are created and supported, leading to active involvement in new uses for IT in small organisations and education. Chris has been facilitating since 2000 and widened his practice to include online groups and meetings in 2008. He started working with VIDM in its second year and joined the committee in 2011. Chris has used his IT experience to support how VIDM is organised and run, and his facilitation skills to support the volunteer facilitators during the conference itself.

Chris is now retired and lives in a small village in the Peak District National Park in the middle of England.  He has six grandchildren scattered around England.  He spends his time playing bridge, going for walks with the dog in the countryside, taking part in community life and, of course, seeing family.

Chris talks about his involvement with VIDM in this short video.
