An internet search of the term "tech whisperer" describes someone who can demystify and simplify technology concepts with gentleness and empathy. Add to that definition an extreme visionary with 30+ years of background and expertise in technology and enterprise strategy and that's me in a nutshell.
In this respect, my passion is helping organizations and individuals get out of their own way so they can leverage the strategic value and benefits of technology and achieve their goals.
I didn't start my professional journey looking to become a "tech guy." In fact, I still don't feel like a "tech guy." Technology just happens to be the medium I work best in and where I find it easy to uncover root issues and identify beneficial solutions. Helping individuals and organizations look at needs, challenges, and opportunities through a solutions lens, helps shrink many of the fears and unknowns around IT and re-grounds them in practical business strategy. Shifting mindset and perspective always open up new possibilities.
The Bottom Line
Digital transformation is impacting virtually every organization and your organization needs an able guide to help navigate those transformative changes.
I am a change agent. As a disruptor and innovator, I am focused and direct; however, this approach fosters candid conversations that help organizations and individuals quickly identify and prioritize goals, rapidly develop roadmaps and action plans, and stimulate change for positive traction and momentum.
Change requires resolve. My goal is to help steel your organization's resolve for achieving success by intentionally and deliberately embracing digital transformation.
