We’re thrilled to be attending Drupal Camp Pannonia from the 1st to 3rd August!
Last week we welcomed two students, Luke Wilkinson and Patryk Mielczarek, into CTI Digital for a week of work experience.
I’m thrilled to be joining CTI Digital as Finance Director as of June 2019. This marks the exciting next step in my career since I founded my own consultancy company, Jigsaw Strategic Solutions, two years ago. The aim of my organisation was to help growing businesses to achieve their potential, by helping to bridge the gap between ambition and knowledge of strategic growth.
At CTI, we are dedicated to constantly improving our services. As part of our hosting and support service, we underpin our own hosting with Amazon Web Services. We also use AWS as a direct resource for clients. The latest achievement for our continual improvement scheme has seen our Systems Administrator (and resident AWS expert) Mark Wilkinson become AWS Certified!
Happy International Women's Day!
To celebrate, we asked a few fantastic women in tech: “Who has inspired you to succeed in your career?”
Running a business is demanding. To be successful requires leadership be equipped with a broad range of skills from financial astuteness to empathy for staff. Whilst developers have ample resources from which to draw reference on best practice, for managers and business leaders knowledge gained is often be deemed competitive advantage and so kept secret or is accessed only through expensive training or courses.
Working in open source brings many benefits including the fostering of knowledge transfer that transcends merely code. It is to the benefit of all that business leaders in Drupal share this openness and are willing to reveal lessons learnt or formulae of success, that in other industries would remain behind closed doors. A fine example of this mindset is DrupalCamp London CXO, this years incarnation was no exception.
Prof. Costas Andriopoulos, Cass Business School, spoke about leadership and innovation in scaling enterprises. He explained that it’s far wiser to sort out your business early, when you are small and well ahead of scaling because what kills businesses is success, age and size.
Outlets for contributing to Drupal beyond code, whilst abundant, are not always evident to those having interest to do so. I want to help people become better acquainted with ways to get involved and how to start their contribution journey. Be they completely new to Drupal or simply yet to find an outlet.
