ex-Civil Engineer now IT enabler, designer, technology cajoler and adoption evangelist

Biography

I am open minded about any technology that makes the lives of people easier and frees them to do what they do best!

My focus is on building knowledge communities, efficient and effective information lifecycle management and the sustained adoption of the Office 365 suite of products. I operate as an IT Pro and believe in configuration over development.

I’m currently the architect of an Office 365 ecosystem at a global engineering, management, and development consultancy. In my role I’m passionate about maximising the value gained from Office 365 by staff through adoption and continuous improvement.

Prior to my move into IT I was a practising Civil Engineer. It may seem on the face of it that there are few similarities between the two but I firmly believe the mind-set needed for both disciplines – creativity, precision, an eye for detail and needing to be able to understand your client’s needs – means that the disciplines are more alike than you think. I still find myself drawing on my engineering background to help me with my day to day decisions.
