Accomplish More — Ambitious present and future leaders who are prepared to share and learn in order to shape the future of IT leadership.
We connect people from all sectors who are in a period of transition, whatever that means for them. We call ourselves a Speakeasy Community because we provide safe environments for our hand-picked membership to share their stories candidly and for the benefit of everyone.
"The older I get, the more I realise how much I don't know. But I also have a newfound appreciation for learning new things: reading non-fiction books, meeting people who have had different experiences to me, using social media and the power of community to connect more meaningfully.
So rather than resting on my laurels, I decided to create a forum for ambitious leaders in my industry who share my desire for self-improvement to Accomplish More. My ambition is for this to be a respected community that attracts curious people who enjoy sharing their experiences and solving problems."
“The question for me is how can we help others develop in their careers, in a pragmatic, no bullshit kind of experience. In doing that, how can we also learn personally. My best experiences at work are solving problems with widely differing views, experiences and personalities; I want us to amplify that at ‘industry’ level via Accomplish More.”
"Technology leadership can be a lonely place and the journey can be long. When I took on my first senior role, I would have really valued a safe environment where I could bounce around ideas and gain insight into areas where I did not have direct experience. That's what we're trying to build with Accomplish More and I am excited about the opportunity to get out of this community as much as I put in, and to collaborate with my fellow members."
"Accomplish More is different to many other groups/forums, both in its approach and mission. I get access to industry leaders and thought leaders and the ability to collectively work through challenges facing both myself personally and the industry as a whole.
It's not about individuals showing-off, it's about a group of like-minded people becoming greater than the sum of their parts. The value of this type of access is immeasurable."
"Over the last decade I have seen the CIO role change - for the better. Now the challenge is to ensure that the business technology community can deliver more. More for society, more for teams, more for business. Oh and enjoy accomplishing more."
"To use my 30+ years’ experience in business to help others and act as a practical sounding board. I’m not an IT expert but I do have a degree in psychology, am an accredited Executive Coach and love being pushed beyond my comfort zone.
So why not?"
"To share your story and to be a part of others on a daily basis is essential to the human experience. Success isn’t limited by contributing to a community we gain so much in return".
