Some of My Top Selling Points
- Fun and Respect are my game. A former manager said I am one of the best people managers out there. I encourage suggestions and constructive criticism. I have a good sense of humor and smile at people often, which I think is one reason why a friend once told us our child was the happiest he's ever seen (and he has many grandchildren!). My aim is always to brighten your day at work. One executive at IBM told me out of the blue that I was the friendliest person he knew, because I always greeted him nicely in the corridors. Another person told me I have a way of uplifting people. I don't know why but I'll take any compliment!
- I am solid technically, having spent more than twenty-five years working with every type of computer, whether it's PCs, workstations, mainframes or smartphones. I am in this business because I love technology, not just because it pays the bills. As a result of all this, I learn new skills faster and more thoroughly than many people.
- I am an innovator. I have had more than ten patents issued. This is because I capture ideas as I have them. My IBM Variable Toll Patent made the headlines several years ago. When I see a product or service deficiency I try to imagine how I can make it better, rather than just complaining about it. At IBM SE School in 1988, I proposed for our mock customer an e-Business solution that is commonplace today but was unheard of then.
- I am quick. I have a reputation for solving problems in hours that would stump others for days. You can count on me too. When I say something will be done, it will be done, within the agreed timeframe, with no bad surprises (but maybe some good ones!).
