Specialist, Microsoft Australia

PRESENTATION TOPIC: Protecting your Business – Cyber Security and Reputational Risk 


I’m a passionate technologist who believes information technology can improve peoples lives. I enjoy helping both technical and non-technical folks to understand technology and it’s potential to help them and their organizations to do more.

At Microsoft, I work with Australian Government to understand the possibilities, put it into the context of their organization, and find the most effective way to procure Microsoft cloud services to enable their outcomes. My role is equal parts education, advisory, and sales & marketing.

I regularly speak at community groups and conferences, ranging from small local functions up to national and international events. It’s one of the great parts of my role and challenges me to keep honing my craft and developing valuable insights I can share with my customers.

I’ve published a number of articles on Microsoft 365, Office 365, and Australian government security and compliance requirements. The security and compliance space is a big focus for me and for my customers.
