Tackle the big problems

At the ScotlandISDeveloper Conference and Business Forum this year we were treated to a fantastic after dinner close by Sir Frank Dick. As well as amusing and thought provoking anecdotes he had a lot of motivational points that rallied the room to be confident and make the change we want to see in the world.

As I think about my next Business potentially being global this particular point sticks in my mind:

No point of going into the world arena if you don’t intend to win

So go out there and solve the big problems – don’t wait for someone else!

Voted onto a board!

Fantastic news – I’ve been voted onto the board of ScotlandIS!

I’m very excited about being involved in shaping the future of Scotland’s technology scene but I’m also honoured that such a group is interested in what I have to say or contribute 🙂

Hopefully over the next few years we can promote software and technology not only as a great career choice but also as an exciting prospect for those still in school and unsure where to go in life…
