How John is building a better working world

“My driving purpose is to bring the power of technology to the betterment of my clients and society as a whole by conceiving, developing and refining new technology solutions to critical challenges. In every project I strive to create an open and inclusive environment, remain agile and drive innovation with curiosity, always listen and remain open to new ideas and perspectives from all stakeholders and, most of all, I seek to be a role model for others, exhibiting the kind of behaviours that I learned from my role models in the past. In addition to my corporate responsibilities I am an active volunteer for two non-profits, managing their technology environments and helping them bring the power of technology to deliver on their societal mission.”
