Hi, I'm Jeremy Wood, and as someone who participates in several IT communities, I realized there are so many people with remarkable stories on how they happened to land in an IT job. So often these great individuals are the business owners, influencers, and event speakers where we hear about the latest products and services that can help us move our customers forward, but we don't hear about them, what they do, why they do it, and how they came to be where they are today. This podcast series will focus on the people behind the products and services and we will get to hear their unique stories.
