What’s your background?
“I’ve got a Bachelor of Computing Systems. After graduating I spent five years working in online marketing and website management for a large tourism company.
I first worked with SharePoint at a government department back in New Zealand where I led a project team tasked with responding to new policy initiatives. I loved the technology. Two years ago, I came over to England and started at Content and Code the very next day.”
What’s been your biggest achievement at Content and Code?
“I can’t look beyond the RNIB project. It’s so rewarding to watch blind and partially sighted people use what we’ve built and to feel that we’re make their lives a little easier.
To win the Microsoft World Partner of the Year Award was the cherry on top of the cake. We deserved it. What we did for the RNIB in terms of accessibility was a world first. It has helped blind people communicate and build friendships where that wouldn’t previously have been possible.”
What are you working on right now?
We’re putting the finishing touches on a new, fully-accessible online shop for the RNIB. Plus I’m managing a new phase of internal risk management for Old Mutual based on new processes built in Microsoft SharePoint.”
What do Content and Code offer that’s unique?
“Clients love that we can rapidly start delivering useful and valuable tools without writing huge up-front specifications saying what every little thing should do.
It all ties back into our agile Scrum methodology. We believe that a face-to-face conversation – where the client sits in the room with the full project team – is a much more effective and collaborative way of meeting our clients’ goals.”
How would you describe Content and Code’s culture?
“Friendly and very welcoming. It’s a place where ideas and innovation are encouraged. People are given the opportunity to prove their ideas and demonstrate that they work. And Tim and Craig are always willing to put them into practice.”
