I am the worldwide business partner technical leader for IBM Collaboration and Talent Solutions. In this role I am responsible for ensuring the Business Partners have the necessary technical skills to help develop their business with IBM. To do this I am responsible for delivering enablement, developing technical growth plans and in delivering technical strategy and guidance for our partners.
My skills can be summarised as follows:
I am ambidextrous – able to be technical and business-focused as needed.
I have deep technical skills in collaboration solutions and practical business experience in building, running and developing business.
I gain respect by being honest, truthful, easy to work with and delivering what I commit to.
I like to take on projects with a team I can lead and develop. I enjoy their successes and development and of course, delivering the end result.
I am happiest when I am working with customers and business partners – it helps keep my feet on the ground.
I enjoy painting the big picture to solve a problem, and then getting down into the details to make it happen.
I hate the attitude “we’ve always done it that way”, and “you’ll never do that” drives me to prove that it can be done.
