3 things this role IS about:
Being the ‘Passionate cloud tech futurist‘:

Being the ‘Insanely great do-ers’:
Who create exponential client impact through tech awesomeness! Exceptional doers and not ‘just Managers’:For people who are insanely great at what they do. And who do things, not because the job needs to be done, but because they really believe in it, because it’s going to make the world a better place.
For the‘real impact seekers’:
the–super-geek-linux-network-data-engineers-turned-cloud-architect-turned-cloud-infra-modernization-consultants-bored-of-working-in-the-bureaucratic-environments, who remain impact driven techies at heart, and do not wish to spend the rest of their lives cc’ing 35 people AND being a sorry part of 25 people, 2 hour-long conference calls with no real intellectual enrichment and/or impact.
