We’re thrilled to announce that our second international guest at this year’s X world will be Arek Dreyer. Arek has been delivering courses and training in the Apple environment since 2001. He’s a consultant, author, course developer, trainer, and integrator. Arek provides coaching and mentoring for people that use iOS devices and Mac computers in complicated environments, and is the coauthor of many books and courses, including macOS Support Essentials 10.13, and Managing Apple Devices.
Arek is a long-time supporter of the X World community, and while we’ve lost count of the exact number of times he’s travelled to be with is, we’re sure that this is at least his fourth appearance, and we couldn’t be happier to have him back!
