Following a career at IBM was a time to re-Think and try different things. Serving a two-year term on the Board of Directors of a non-profit involved in HIV education & testing in the Yucatán became the vehicle for that. And much more. After that, I decided to consult with non-profit education institutions where a trans-formative culture around cloud and social was taking root. Some of those experiences are highlighted in LAB14.
At IBM I worked on e-business transformation for some of the world’s largest companies, in Energy & Utilities, Media & Entertainment, and Financial Markets. All had a Chief Information Officer (CIO) with vast resources to draw from. It made me interested in how to bring trusted-adviser-consulting to small organizations. It can be done.
Following my experience in the education sector, I spent a couple years consulting at Black & Veatch, a global engineering and construction firm involved in intelligent power grids, water treatment plants, pipelines, renewables, and telecommunications networks. My time there, working with engineers was yet another opportunity to expand my horizons.
Today , I’m independent, and still in the most interesting field in the world working as an IT strategy consultant to executives in the Interstate Pipeline industry. Love my profession, the adventure, and all the great colleagues and clients I’ve come to know over the years. May it never end.
