Greetings and thanks for visiting – I’m Steve Shepard.
For more than 30 years I’ve worked in the technology world, initially in telecom and then expanding into IT technology and media. Initially my interest was in the technology itself but over the years, as I expanded beyond telecom and as I began to work increasingly outside of North America, my focus shifted.
I had the good fortune to grow up in Spain, living there from the time I was 13 until I graduated from high school. That experience gave me a gift of incalculable value: an appreciation for languages, and cultures, and the extraordinary diversity – and capability – of people.
In a typical year I visit more than 50 countries, and the work I do is as diverse as the places I go. In the First World, I work with executives to develop competitive strategies for organizational success, and with their employees to sharpen their technical sales and marketing skills. In the Developing World my work is very different, and immensely rewarding. There I work with countries and companies that are often building technology infrastructure for the very first time and want to get the greatest return for their often limited resources. This is the work I love, because it happens in places where I often get to be the minority – something everyone should experience – and where, at the end of the day, I can take a step back and see the impact I’ve had. It doesn’t get a whole lot better than that. These are also places where technology brings competitive advantage, but it also brings economic growth, transparent government, access to healthcare and education, and perhaps most important of all, hope.
