About Neil

My interest in IT started when my Dad opened up a PC repair business when I was very young and subsequently I got to play around with a lot of the kit kicking around the family home.

From early beginnings I secured my first IT job in 2005 and spent a lot of my free time reading Microsoft self-study books and passing exams to develop my career and progress professionally.

I met Matt in 2009 when I joined his team providing systems administration for a large private healthcare firm which gave me far greater exposure to enterprise level applications, and showed me how IT can be used to drastically improve the drive of a business and empower users. It also allowed me to fine tune my technical skills and focus on products I have a particular affinity for, specifically the System Center suite from Microsoft.

Nowadays I work as a Technical Consultant and Microsoft Certified Trainer. I'm fortunate enough to still work with Matt to scope, design and implement projects whilst retaining that 'hands-on' technical detail that us engineers know and love.

If you have any questions or queries then please get in touch, or hit us up on the blog.
