Review of 2022

So another year ends. Personally an amazing year with dream after dream coming true with the most amazing people I could wish to be with.

Ditch the generic terms to build better engagement.

Generic terms and generic answers and how we need an evolving language to build more engagement in digital. When we consider how we talk about technology and its impact I would dearly love us to get away from generic terms and become more creative in how we describe benefits that we are here help our… Read More

We all have a bad day occasionally…

We all have bad days, yes? Working in IT in any environment sometimes feels like the world set up this morning with a clear goal, to discredit what we are trying to achieve.
