I have always enjoyed working in the SharePoint space. I have seen it evolve over the years right from the version 2007 / or 2003 when I first encountered it. I have worked in a number of organisations in various roles. Every role that I have worked on has taught me a lot, It has helped me grow professionally and also as a person.
One of the greatest things my roles have taught me to love about is connecting with people, networking and building long-lasting relationships. I find it amazing when people trust me! This really pays off all the time and takes you places.
I just love working with clients
I just love working with clients. I love solving their Business problems with the aid of Technology. The best part of my role is making Technology work the way we want it to be and not the other way around of working under the boundaries of technology.
I used to be super nervous about standing in front of an audience to present about a topic. This is not a thing for me anymore.
I still remember the time back in the day (years ago), being super nervous about standing in front of an audience to present about a topic. This is not a thing anymore, gone are those days! I now look for the opportunity to be out there when the attention is all on you with the audience ready to listen to everything you say. The best part is, I think of it as a “prime time” when I have their attention to talk about topics that I am very passionate about. I have a number of passions, some of the major ones are SharePoint(Modern), Microsoft 365, Digital Transformation and Fitness (not necessarily in the order listed here).
I really have to talk about my current role. It’s just amazing. I work as the Intelligent Workplace Lead in the Digital Team for SXiQ. The best part of my role is the people I work with. I feel very blessed to be working with some of the most amazing talents. We work with a common objective, which is to deliver what we promise and go the extra mile to ensure the client is over the moon with what we do for them.
Every project I start working on, I think of it as a Marathon. The objective is to be optimistic first, believe in the journey and expect magic to happen at the finish line.
The best part of my role is, I am involved right from the start of the inception stage of the customer Digital Transformation journey right until the point we have delivered & beyond.
I have been able to develop some of the most amazing relationships with our clients as part of their digital journeys. It’s amazing to see them happy with the outcomes and the best part of the journey is the client loving what they have been delivered and the feeling being taken care of all through the journey.
I feel very blessed to be in this era of the most amazing platforms such as Microsoft 365, Azure, etc where the sky is limit. Also, with the new announcements every year at Microsoft Ignite, things are only getting more amazing!
I will be taking my passion of working in this space to the next level starting this year, it will be more towards doing more for the community and being able to share some of the success stories and also get inspired by others’ stories.
I would love to take a moment to say Thank you to all my folks who work with me on this amazing journey. You know who you are. Let’s rock on!
I would also like to also say Thank you to all the partners that I work with too such as, LiveTiles, Nintex, AvePoint – Thanks, guys!
