Founder and CEO at Technology Advocates
I like to read up on the latest technologies and meet up with fellow tech leaders to discuss challenges and how to solve them, as well as chatting about tech. Can you please provide a little introduction about yourself
As an IT and business leader, I noticed a large gap in how small to medium sized businesses understand, manage projects and train their teams, and after many years serving in different roles in information technology, including director, CIO, and CISO, I decided to transition my part-time CIO consulting role into a full time business focusing on Project Management consulting, coaching and training.
