New York, NY – June 2, 2022 – FADEL®, innovator of brand compliance and digital rights management software, today announced its participation in the innovative programming from the Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU) (formerly known as Ryerson) in support of continuing education and professional development.

The 2022 Canada Coast-to-Coast Digital Asset Management (DAM) Workshops and Annual Events are co-produced between The Graphic Communications Management (GCM) program represented by their Associate Professor, Dr. Reem El Asaleh, the lead instructor for a unique undergraduate DAM course at TMU, and David H. Lipsey, DAM industry and community leader who also serves as the Global Chair of The Henry Stewart Conferences on DAM and the Co-Founder, Co-Director & Instructor at Rutgers University under The Digital Asset Management Certificate Program.

The workshops provide a professional development platform that discusses contemporary DAM trending topics such as Keywording in the Creative Industries, DAM Capability Model, Rights Management and DAM, and Artificial Intelligence. “The events are playing an important role in fostering the next DAM leadership generation by providing a bridge between the DAM professional community and students across various programs at The Creative School and Toronto Metropolitan University,” said Dr. Reem El Asaleh. “We are grateful for our partnership with FADEL which will help us to expand our outreach.”

“FADEL is excited to team with customer and major, global lifestyle brand, Kohler, in this online educational event on how rights management is vital to a successful DAM implementation,” said Gregg Guest, VP of Product Management Cloud Platforms at FADEL. “It should be a lively and informative discussion where my co-speaker, Kim Johnson, Communications Leader on Kohler’s Digital Asset Management team, will discuss Kohler’s real-world perspective on rights management and together we will showcase best practices to address the challenges facing brands.”
