Interview on Microsoft Tech Community

Recently I was interviewed by the Microsoft community team about my thoughts on driving adoption with Office 365. This is a topic I feel very strongly about and was the main driver behind setting up my former business Paradyne.

Changing the way people work is less about the technology, and more about the people – we simply need to give them the tools to make it happen.

Paradyne acquired by Generation-e to form productivity powerhouse

The journey to build Paradyne into a leading cloud consultancy over the past 6 years has been one fraught with pleasure and pain.

At a Microsoft event a few months ago the CEO of Generation-e and myself found ourselves finding a lot of common ground as leading Microsoft partners. The conversations evolved to talking about what we could potentially do together, and the difference we could make.

Long story short: Paradyne has been acquired by Generation-e. Between both of us we form quite a powerhouse when it comes to human collaboration and communication.

On a personal level this will help me realise my vision of changing the way people work and communicate with each other, and to help title Work/Life balance to be more of a Life/Work balance.

This would not have been possible without the tremendous effort of the Paradyne team who will probably never fully know how much I appreciate their efforts to build Paradyne into the success it is today. And of course my wife who is not just the woman behind the man, but also a key part of our team and success.

I look forward to making a bigger change to our customers and the people who work within them!
