CEO Data Perceptions
United Kingdom United Kingdom
Software designer and developer of Prophecy, a multi-user solution for sales forecasting and the Software Update Wizard, an automatic updates component that lets software developers add automatic updates to their Windows applications with a single line of code and which supports automatic updates, even where the logged in user does not have (write) rights to Program Files etc. folders.

I started working life as full time sales forecaster in the CPG sector. Transitioned to IT as I had an interest in software development and felt combining this with my previous business experience would be good.

After many years working for a company I developed Prophecy as a spare-time project and became self-employed in 1998, with Prophecy and the Software Update Wizard as my sole sources of income. It's been an interesting and challenging ride!
