CLICK TO LISTEN BUSINESSES WANT TO MAKE THEIR IT EFFICIENT. I think that should be an obvious statement. But I bet there is a tonne of inefficiency in your business.

Sometimes its good to have a group of savvy business technologist helps us in the more complex situations. I think this is where Alpha Technologies weighs in with their unique approach to satisfying every client. Alan Castell, CEO joins me to provide you insight into his business world.

Wadood Ibrahim

CLICK TO LISTEN PEOPLE RELATIONSHIP AND CREATING A WORKSPACE CULTURE IS IMPORTANT:  I believe this is one of the statements that this successful CEO, Wadood Ibrahim, Protegra would say. Wadood has to be one of the most people insightful business leaders I have met. But he would never call himself the CEO of Protegra, but more like the business custodian. I am not sure if I will do it justice, but I think he likes to create places where people want to come and work and solve problems in a creative, innovative fashion apply a successful problem-solving formula or process.  Wadood is the Chair of the Chamber of Commerce and has been involved in the business community for a long time. If there is someone I would like to work with, even just to shadow for a day, it would be Wadood. Open to sharing what has made Protegra successful, make sure you listen in.
