As we navigate the breadth and depth of the world of IT I gain an appreciation for the role IT professionals play in our working lives, what makes their hearts sing, where their biggest challenges lie, and as consumers of the products and services they develop and support, how we can begin to help ourselves, freeing them up to do their best work.
And in the course of our conversation, I discover the one thing technology can’t do for us.
Hi, I’m Julie Hood, and welcome to my podcast TimePeace.
It has been created in honour of my dad, a watchmaker who spent a lifetime restoring people’s time, by his daughter who for many years felt there was never quite enough of it - until she learned there was.
It took longer to get to that place than I thought and like all change it was challenging. When I look back, I wish I’d rescued her sooner.
I now teach others what I’ve learned, and continue to learn, in the hope their time can be restored. These podcast conversations are part of that.
Because in a world that seems obsessed with speed there is no better time to learn to make haste more slowly than now.
