I’m a New Zealander at heart who made Brisbane, Australia my home.
My I.T. career of over 20 years started in Enterprise Systems Administration and Architecture for Banking, Government and Defence, focussed on Microsoft and IBM software platforms. My last Enterprise role was as a Service Delivery Manager, responsible for IBM developers & system administrators in multiple locations.
Now I’m dedicated to the Small and Medium Business space, helping customers change business processes to successfully adopt new technologies the right way, to achieve great business results. I love collaboration, productivity and the future of work (including AI and bots). With a “virtual CIO” hat on, I also help guide technology strategy in alignment with the current status & future plans of a business.
Microsoft has awarded me as an MVP in the Office Servers & Services and Windows Insider categories, for my work in the community with Office 365. I also help other I.T. partners keep up with the rapid pace of change in our industry.
I write online and speak at events, provide expert comment, appear in guest blogs & podcasts and run presentations & training (both in person & online).
And when I’m not at my desk, I’m at my espresso machine or volunteering in my community with the State Emergency Services.
