I will soon cancel this site in the face of the legistation that comes into play on 25 May 2018.

It isn't worth the hassle of getting this site compliant to be frank - so I'll move the content to another site and that one will be GDPR compliant from the outset.

I'll move the blogs, photos, forum items in due course and meantime I will delete all the membership entries from the site so that no personal data is being held.

Long live Privacy and Security, eh? :-)

Profile Information

How do you know of this site?
Are you or do you wish to be an ACTIVE member of Mike's network?
What business are you in (optional and private)
The Computer Business
Some notes about yourself (optional)
I help IT related businesses - sometimes to exist in the first place - and always to focus and grow. Throughout my career I have obeyed a golden rule: "recruit, acquire or develop your successor". It brings relief quite quickly AND builds your network of supporters!

I base my work on long term vision, market understanding, personal connections, coaching, mentoring and where appropriate, (increasingly rarely!) executive intervention. Active involvements throughout the UK and Europe, with occasional projects in USA and Canada.

The market knows me best as a specialist advisor for the UK ICT Industry, in particular for marketing & channels to market, where I have worked with the Vendor and VAR community for the past 30 years or so.

I love to see people starting their own businesses & have helped scores of start ups during my career. Some have reached stardom & a goodly proportion of them are simply alive & well. I fundamentally believe in social networking driving business growth.

A frequent speaker at and organiser of conferences in ICT related fields, I specialise in facilitating expert panel sessions on a wide range of subjects. These include mentoring & start-ups, trade press relations, channels to market, social networking and the marketing of emerging technologies.

A very keen skier & a not-so-keen moderate golfer. I have a recent love of sailing big boats. In these sports my goal is to justify a single figure handicap rating.

I can't abide those who use LinkedIn to generate pseudo connections. e.g. entering "Technology" for somewhere you used to work and claiming to be a past associate of mine demeans the principle of this excellent medium. (This practice is often used by out-sourcers from the Indian sub-continent). Don't do it!

If you have sought me out because of a particular matter (or conversely I have done that with you) that's within the reasonable tolerances of what this is about.

Hi Mike! 

Nicola is very well & sends her regards thanks. We're both busy with our new business called twenty26 and working on building a pipeline. We're selling Lean Six Sigma consulting with Cloud based process automation tools to allow companies to do more with less quicker (get rid of the work BEFORE the people). Interesting times for sure. Would be great to pick your brain sometime regarding all this;-) Hope you're well. You have certainly developed a very interesting web presence. Well done!

Thanks for the boot up the backside re updating my profile on here, Mike. It prompted a review of my Linkedin (I may actually understand how to use it properly one day, but I'm getting there).
