Explain a little about your area of expertise and what you do at Economit

I help Economit's clients get the best value for money out of their technology. From creating bespoke business applications on the Power Platform and Microsoft Azure Stack to configuring elements of Microsoft 365 to meet a client's requirements.

What attracted you to this type of role and how long have you worked in this area?

I've worked in this area since 2019. I'm a tinkerer at heart and I love building things.

My favourite bit of my job is...

Building new stuff for clients. Taking their initial requirements and turning them into a system they can use to make their job easier.

In my spare time, you’ll find me…

I like to use my free time productively. I particularly enjoy Zumba. It delivers the perfect combination of fun dance choreography and cardio moves. Zumba classes are so fun that you may forget you're getting a workout in! It helps me maintain a positive mindset, it reduces stress, and it increases concentration levels. I also enjoy spending time with my friends and family.

My first memory of technology was...

Playing computer games on my Dad's computer.

The best piece of IT advice I’ve ever been given...

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. As technologists, we often get carried away with the technology and what it can do. Rather than thinking if we should be doing something.

My top takeaway for clients is...

For clients, you should expect your company's technology to be an enabler and actively make your job easier and more enjoyable. For many organisations, technology sadly becomes a necessary evil to be cost-controlled, rather than a value centre which propels the business forward and helps it achieve its goals.
