I'm a social biz and startup specialist. This position since 1995 - LinkedIn sequencing puts it too far down if tell it that.

I assist companies with ICT related objectives to reach their goals.

I act as an advisor, interim manager, or more preferably board member to plan, enable & drive change. Some put me under a marketing umbrella - I don't see it that way. Those people don't know that marketing isn't a department, but more a total company philosophy. If that's what you believe, we're on the same wavelength already.

I have a deep understanding of the UK & European ICT sector. Currently active in child protection software, IT asset management, Virtualisation, Mobile Computing, channels development, publishing, CRM, supply chain, web portal, data management & trading standards matters.

I in-frequently act as a broker between companies in M & A activity, and have quietly and prolifically placed a number of top people in new positions within companies large and smaller with whom I have influence.

Data integrity in the disruptive world
LinkedIn
December 11, 2016
Tech-savvy or otherwise, it’s important for every small business owner to understand the role of data in their organisation and what they must do to safeguard and secure it. Unstructured data is coming at us thick and fast, and the more of it there is and the less that is done about it, the more difficult it becomes to secure.

Have you heard of ‘smart dust’? I thought not. You probably know about 3D printing, but what about 4D printing? Or neuromorphic hardware? If you haven’t heard about them now then you might in the not too distant future, as they could be the next technologies in the world of smart computing that will turn our world upside down

There's No Rocket Science in B2B Social - You Just Need Clustered Platforms
LinkedIn
September 07, 2016
Having been quite heavily involved over the past 5/6 years in what might (often erroneously) be called "Social Communities", I'm more and more convinced that getting a combination of tools and platforms to work together is the right way to tackle the typical B2B requirement in this sphere.

No Security Fear For MSPs – Automation Can Fill The Human Skills Gap ...
LinkedIn
July 21, 2016
All of us involved in the IT side of business know that cybercrime is as big a threat as it’s ever been and that it’s growing all the time.
It therefore is putting unprecedented pressure on those managed service providers (MSPs) providing the security to keep businesses (ergo: their customers) protected.

Cognitive Analytics: What Data Scientists Don’t Want MSPs to Know!
LinkedIn
July 15, 2016
Not just because universities aren’t turning out very many of us any more, (there will be a chronic shortage of people with analytics expertise by 2018, according to this infographic), but because the consequences of that shortfall are that analytics are being transformed into accessible, democratic, business-wide tools that any MSP employee can use.

Cognitive Intelligence: Why Security MSPs Must Have It
LinkedIn
July 06, 2016
There’s something of a profitability paradox at work in the heart of the MSP security sector.
For although innovations like the cloud are helping to alleviate the staffing headaches that security decision-makers in end-user organisations are facing (as discussed in this white paper), the MSPs themselves are in increasing of danger of requiring an army of specialists to deploy and maintain the services they deliver, as user and system demands scale up dramatically.
