At the risk of sounding pretentious: Best Head of IT – Ever

I’m not really one for blowing my own trumpet. Don’t get me wrong, I’m good at what I do, passionate about it and confident enough not to need or seek validation. That’s why people pay me…

As well as the technical aspects of my role I always make the effort to remember that the people I work with and for are important and skilled in their own right – so I listen and learn, never preach, give credit where it’s due, spread a sense of optimism and enthusiasm, do my best to do things right and do what needs to be done as efficiently as possible.

Having made significant changes to both technology and policies over 2 years, I left DFH in the hands of a great team and I know they were as sorry to see me move on as I was to leave them.

One morning, a couple of weeks after leaving, I was in the in the Man-Cave working on the bike when the postman dropped off a package. I was quite touched to find this inside it:

Best Head of IT Crystal Plaque

Nice touch – 2 weeks after leaving last role

  1. Well done Will, you deserved it. I know it’s not your main field but our websites have remained entirely unmolested since your kind assistance with the problems we were having. The ‘honeypot’ alerts has dropped to almost nothing now.
