Doris Mentor Session with Steve Briggs
March 5, 2014
As part of the 2014 Doris ongoing mentoring programme, Steve Briggs, Head of IT Sourcing in The Co-operative Bank presented to our Trainees and Apprentices, giving us all an insight into his colourful career.
Steve shared his stories about delivering milk in the early hours of the morning, how he managed to obtain a dynamite license which landed him a job as a ship salvager and even leading a team searching for the remains of the Armada!
He told us about being one of a two man ocean yacht crew travelling the world for 6 months and how all these experiences eventually helped him, via marketing and sales, to land his first job in IT! Steve now has over 20 years of IT experience but stressed to us that some of the more unusual experiences can help us succeed in business.
We did pick up some very useful lessons on IT Supplier management but the other stuff was really fascinating!
