About me

Hi, my name is John.  I have worked in the IT industry for 28 years supporting applications, people and services.  My initial direction was in software development, however over the years I have moved towards support rather than development, as I found I had a knack for working with people, developing and explaining solutions.

During my time in support I have worked on implementations of Service desk software, virtual machines, desktop delivery of services, mobile solutions and agile working.  Bringing several key changes to working practices for my current employer.

I have worked extensively in the delivery of Blackberry and Good for Enterprise services, and have recently implemented a new farm delivering Mobile email, document handling and intranet services using Good technology.

I am currently delivering a solution to upgrade a SharePoint farm to SharePoint 2013/2016.  I have been involved as a farm administrator with SharePoint since 2009 delivering collaboration services, and implementing SharePoint solutions to resolve customer issues, using out of the box SharePoint and enhanced functionality with workflows and InfoPath.

I am currently focused on certification for an MCSE in SharePoint 2013/2016 using Office 365 as my server modules.
