How did you come to do what you do?
I happened upon IT as the ‘youngster’ who wasn’t afraid of computers. I went from PA, to Helpdesk Administrator, got an MCSE and the training company hired me to become a trainer. From there I moved into messaging and active directory consulting, then into practice and engagement management.
How did your career journey lead you to Binary Tree?
I saw that Binary Tree were starting to make waves in the migration arena in Europe, so I contacted some colleagues here at BT and here I am.
What technology advancement in your career has surprised you the most?
How so much has moved to the cloud allowing you to collaborate with almost anyone, anywhere on different platforms.
What’s your proudest career moment?
A senior VP seeing potential and having faith in me to move me from London to New York to ‘fix’ a troubled region and then being rewarded for the positive contribution only 6 months after transfer by being awarded Presidents Club.
What drives you?
Feeling valued coupled with a desire to simplify life for myself and others.
What industry shift will our clients need to be on the lookout for soon?
I really want to ride flying cars. However, virtual reality and artificial Intelligence seem to be getting a lot of press these days.
