The next contract was for a large IT infrastructure project. Based in New Zealand, Rod regularly trains in Project Management and Best Practices for using MS Project. A regular supply of VBA work for clients via the Internet also keeps him busy. Currently Rod, is busy writing VBA solutions for various clients, doing advanced project planning for complex projects and has just completed updating his book on Programming in Project VBA to include Project 2010 and basic VSTO programming. Apart from family life on a lifestyle block, Rod is a volunteer Skipper on his local Coastguard rescue boat.
