My Promise to you

An overview of digital transformation technologies, implications in the Caribbean and the World, no vendor plugs, no ads, and no spam. I explore one or two different subjects each week, diving in-depth, providing my analysis and commentary. Now and again, I’ll provide more links for further reading.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I am writing it.

Who is Matthew?

Based in Martinique, I started work life building Electric Distribution Panels (Switchgear) to fulfil a dream to become a Design Engineer, but the world of electronics and eventually computing was too enticing.

At 18, I sold my car to buy an Amiga 500 with zero regrets! A sale that sealed my fate in the world of working with and around computers ever since. I currently hold qualifications in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Computing and more recently graduated from the prestigious ESSEC Business School based in Paris, France, in the Operations Management Master’s program.

Finally, I quit working for someone else to set up a consulting practice to help small businesses realise their digital potential using my research and reporting skills to provide detailed analysis of the markets, trends and opportunities for businesses in the digital space.

I believe that digital operations strategies are largely left under-discussed and poorly implemented in SMSE’s mostly through false assumptions about resource allocation and the sexiness of digital marketing. My role is to help you build out supporting technologies and operations that complement all elements in the value chain.

I’m bi-lingual English-French and moved to the French West Indies 16 years ago.
