Stephen manages to combine two rare qualities – the ability to think strategically but also execute. His experience and thinking around Cloud Computing is far in advance of much of the theory and intellectual debate being conducted by the analysts and bloggers.
I have known Stephen since 2008, and can easily say he is one of the smartest people I know as it pertains to the cloud, and specifically on what that means to IT solution providers. I steal (borrow?) more analogies and concepts from Stephen than anyone else. Stephen is a thought leader on the subject of cloud.
An exciting conference where David Goad and I launched our book “Thinking of…The Internet of Things from the Directors Perspective? Ask the Smart Questions”. Great feedback from the audience afterwards – we had achieved our goal of getting business leaders to start thinking about the boarder issues as well as the technology of the IoT opportunity. (the book is available on all your favourite book stores including https://www.amazon.com/Thinking-Internet-Directors-Perspective-Questions-ebook/dp/B077W4TNFG/)
Jules Rumsey the CEO of CloudPlus had asked me to be the lead speaker for a partner roadshow. Whilst discussing the content and structure the topic of how to share the content to a wider audience came up. Long story short we captured video and still images from the events and my team and I created the following video montage…
It was great to be invited back to present two session on Digital Transformation at Citrix Summit 2017 in Anaheim (positive audience feedback from 2016 presentations really does work).
It’s great delivering keynotes, however being the MC at an event, whilst providing different challenges, is equally exciting. I have been privileged to be offered the opportunity to act at MC at the 2016, 2017 and 2019 #CloudSec events in Sydney and Melbourne.
I worked with rhipe to create a series of short videos providing insights into the business transformation challenges that the cloud is creating. The following is one from the playlist that can be found here
In Dec 2014, I was invited to present over 2 days at the IDC Channel Leadership Council in San Mateo, California. I shared research I had carried out on what was blocking cloud adoption in the channel (spoiler alert – the vendors own processes!!)
An interview with Warren Nolan, Chief Commercial Officer at rhipe, during recent conference. With the hectic surroundings it was all about creating a relaxed style to allow the ideas to flow.
As a way to capture the ideas and lesson learnt from the past few years,I have written a number of books. The standardised Smart Questions structure allows this to be done in a concise manner without having to worry about the normal look and feel issues.
I was asked to be the external keynote for rhipe’s Cloud Summit series across ANZ. This involved a research program to gather content, creating the presentations and delivering the keynote. A copy of the Powerpoint can be found here
Whilst at Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2015 I recorded this video on business model transformation with Jen Sieger, Partner Profitability Lead, Microsoft.
