Blog it Forward
I’m participating in the Blog It Forward Community Challenge because of Blog It Forward – Corey Adams. If you haven’t been tagged yet but would like to participate, you can add yourself to the list – Blog It Forward Chain.
An Introduction to me:
In true New Zealand style, I am a South African expat living in New Zealand (where did all the Kiwis go?) and enjoying the squirming as the Black Caps (NZ Cricket Team) have gone down to the mighty Proteas (SA Cricket Team). However, I enjoy living in paradise with great scenery, food, coffee and people!
I am passionate about BI Evangelism, and have been training most folk in the Land of the Long White Cloud for the past decade. This means I get to travel all over Middle Earth and have great stories – which I keep for conferences! Like the story of my great beach house….
I currently work for the top SAP Partner in New Zealand – Soltius (www.soltius.co.nz). Have been here just over 2 years and enjoy the local culture, focused intensity and commitment to delivering solutions for customers. We must be doing something right, as we have been a finalist in the Best Places to Work in New Zealand for the past couple of years. We also have great company conferences, but I have signed an NDA so am unable to share what happens at these events wtih you…..LOL.
A fun Fact about me:
I tell the funniest (though some say the worst) puns this side of both the Equator and the Date Line. No seriously….I am funny….guys?
If money and time off were no issue, which SAP event would you go to worldwide?
Any event where I won’t hear “Closed Loop”…probably SAPPHIRE, hopefully in Las Vegas, as I have been there before and enjoyed the experience.
If you could only follow 3 people on Twitter, which 3 would it be, and why?
So far, so right in his technology predictions. Except Flying Cars versus 120 letters?!!
Like his business at all costs approach. If it doesn’t work the traditional way, find another route!
@John C. Maxwell
Business Leadership with Ethics. Some of the best business leaders I have come across are those with intergrity and faith. The rest are just managers.
If you could be a super hero (or are in your spare time) who would you be?
Spaceman Spiff. See the universe – enjoy a tuna sandwich. (Calvin and Hobbes for the uneducated).

Making a difference.
What do you imagine or predict is the future of your topic?
