What we have done

Everything IoT Conference 2017

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/)

Getting people to think

Creating content to share

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…

Citrix Summit 2017

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).

MC at #CloudSec Australia

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.


Cloud Insights

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

Channel Leadership

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!!)

Executive Conversation

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.

Smart Questions Books

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 work with Canary Networks to help with business growth strategy.  I also record short interviews with the executives who present at Canary Networks events.  Other examples are available here

Research Messaging

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
