About the Presenters
Nolan Myers has led Inkling’s content production from ten titles per year to hundreds per month. As the head of the Content Operations team he developed Inkling’s approach to conversion, workflow design, and supplier management, pioneering processes that enable beautiful content to be created at scale. He now brings this expertise to Inkling’s enterprise partners by helping them design and implement their digital strategies.
Prior to Inkling, Nolan has ten years of experience developing and deploying software platforms. Highlights include managing LAUSD’s first district-wide math benchmark assessment program and Utah’s phone-based traffic reports for the 2002 Winter Olympics. He graduated from Harvard, where he studied and taught computer science. Nolan loves music and cooking, and always enjoys discussing the Beatles, Beethoven, and biscuits.
Stephen Hayes helps Inkling’s enterprise partners build beautiful content at scale using Habitat, Inkling’s cloud-based publishing platform. He’s responsible for deploying Habitat-based conversion and authoring solutions to some of the largest publishers in the world.
In his previous role as production manager, Stephen introduced workflows and tools that led to a 10x increase in Inkling’s library size, along with similar improvements in quality and turnaround time. He also ramped up and expanded the services of a globally dispersed workforce of Providers who develop content in Habitat around the clock.
Prior to Inkling, Stephen worked in education, teaching middle-school students english and history. He studied at Stanford, sang in an a cappella group, and spent a semester living in Cape Town (he will talk your ear off about it). When he’s not at Inkling, Stephen enjoys reading, traveling, and biking in the Bay Area.
