What do you hope attendees will gain at your webinar?

An understanding of how technology is changing with a low code approach from Microsoft,  directly reflecting business needs and empowering users to create their own apps based platform and environment for business processes, workflows and intelligence.

What discussions do you look forward to having with the attendees?

How to introduce and consume the new technologies available and ensure that their organisation can do this competently and securely.  Most organisations will have a list of apps that they want or wish to have and this can be the answer to meeting that need.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

I like that every week is different although the last few months have made that less so!  The Microsoft Business Applications platform is growing and building constantly and there are so many interesting and vital projects changing the way people live and work.

How did you get into the industry?

I got involved in a system implementation at the Local Authority where I used to work (quite a few years ago now) and was bitten by the bug eventually moving to a software house.

Where is your favorite place in the world and why?

Bestwood Woods near Nottingham, an ancient royal hunting grounds, been walking and cycling around there for decades and never get tired of it.
