In a world in which there is virtually no aspect of commercial life that is unaffected by information technology it is not often that you encounter individuals with both a "hands-on" understanding of IT but also a sound appreciation of commercial issues.  Furthermore, it is probably true to say that businesses that are not harnessing information technology to their advantage, whether as part of their internal systems, their interface with clients/customers or through their web-presence, are going to be losing out to their competitors.

I consider that my training and experience make me well placed to bridge this divide.
