I have spent the last twenty years working in the Learning & Development industry - supporting others to achieve their potential is what motivates me to do more, do better and inspire others to do the same. Over the years I have seen some significant changes to both technology and ways of working. This started with the shift from UNIX to NT 4.0, the introduction of Agile and DevOps (who knew that IT Operations and Developers would work so closely together!) and more recently, cloud adoption. Cloud adoption is particularly interesting to me, not just because of the impact it will make on businesses, but how it will open up greater possibilities for individuals. The rapid pace of digitalization is forcing businesses to look in alternative places for talent and is therefore making technical careers more accessible for all.
