What are you most proud of having achieved during your time at proact?
Apart from many successful solution deployments for our customers, I won an award from one of our vendors. The award was for the design of a centralized backup and storage solution for a large government organization. However, for me it was the several years I had spent working with the customer on the design and the benefits that the customer saw from the deployment of the solution that was the real success.
What was the most interesting thing that happened at work this week?
I ran a training session with some new Proact colleagues on a particular technology we use. It was interesting as they were keen to learn and the feedback from the training was, they could now talk to customers about how this technology could solve challenges.
What kind of people work at Proact?
People that work at Proact are enthusiastic about the work they do, with a focus towards helping our customers but also keen to help colleagues as well.
What made you sign up for a job at Proact?
I was a customer before joining Proact and I enjoyed working with the people that have now become colleagues and had an interest in expanding my expertise in the solutions that Proact offer.
What do you read right now?
I read a lot of crime novels by authors such as Jo Nesbø, Michael Connelly and Henning Mankell.
Your favourite music band?
My musical taste is quite eclectic so my choice of music can vary quite drastically. If I was going to pick one band, it would probably be Elbow.
How do you use Tech in your daily life?
In work I use technology most of the day, whether this be for email, writing documents or delivering presentations over Teams. Out of work I mainly use technology for streaming music or movies but also do a lot of virtual cycling as well.
What is your earliest memory of using Technology?
My father was a lecturer at a college and he managed to bring home a BBC Micro computer for me to learn how to use.
