About This Site

We’re living in the information age, and there’s plenty of automation that we can manipulate to make our lives easier, and our businesses to run more efficiently and effectively.

This site is updated for two reasons:
1. To make life that little bit easier for small businesses and charities.
2. As a platform for my ramblings as a freelance Technical Project Manager.

Why small businesses?

Because the harsh reality is that small businesses are more likely to fail.  It’s well known that the majority of small businesses fail within their first 5 years of incorporation, and it’s an arguable fact that these days the  business climate is getting more competitive and cut-throat.  I want to help change that, by sharing some stuff I’ve learned, as well as pointing you in a good direction for the information you need.

Why charities/non-profits?

Charities are woven into the fabric of every city and town.  They address societal issues in a direct manner that traditional capitalist businesses most often can’t.  Interestingly, in order to achieve longevity, charities need to run like a business.  Taking all of this into account, plenty of pointers that apply to businesses could easily apply to charities.

Who updates the site?

I do, but with your help.  I think of a topic that’s affected my business, or a charity that I volunteer for.  If it’s worth sharing, I’ll write something  about it.  You, the site visitor, are encouraged to comment, to slate, to share, to contribute.  If you’ve got a topic you’d like me to write about, by all means get in touch.  If you’d like to post an item of your own here, that’s perfectly fine too – just ask.

Who the heck am I?

I spent a number of years as a software developer for software companies and advertising agencies . I finally settled as a Technical Project Manager/Consultant a few years back and found it a lot more fulfilling to deal with the ‘bigger picture’ of my clients, to not just focusing solely on the coding development side.

I’ve worked with plenty of technology solutions, both large and small, and experienced first-hand just how beneficial they are to the runnings of a company. I’ve learned some valuable lessons from every project I’ve ever worked on – and there’s nothing I enjoy more than passing on this learning and wisdom to the people I work with.

Alongside my technology interests, I’m very into fitness development (I’ve attended a few Spartan Races and Tough Mudder events over the years) and I enjoy gaming.

Please get in touch – I’d love to hear from you.
