I am currently the architect of an Office 365 ecosystem at Mott MacDonald who are a global engineering, management, and development consultancy. In my role I am passionate about maximising the value gained from Office 365 by staff through adoption and continuous improvement. Whilst heavily immersed in the Microsoft stack I remain vendor agnostic.
I only recently made the transition into IT – my journey started in 2014. I am a 5-time Microsoft MVP in the Office Apps and Services category receiving my first award in 2016. Prior to my move I was a practising Civil Engineer. It may seem on the face of it that there are few similarities between the two, but I firmly believe that the mind-set needed for both disciplines – creativity, precision, an eye for detail and needing to be able to understand your client’s needs – means that the two are more alike than you think.
