Since my first, faltering steps into the business world in 1993, there have been a few simple recurring themes to what I have been up to, namely
Connecting people to the information they need
Exploiting ideas and making them real
Uncovering the hidden value in existing data
Wherever there are organisations working hard to accomplish their goals, there are people finding new ways to achieve their aims, and asking 'if only we could...'.
The ideas come from within the organisation, the information usually exists already. However, there's a great deal of satisfaction to be gained in tying those things together - the art of the possible, if you like.
I blog about such things at http://chrisweston.tumblr.com - it would be great to see you there ;-)
