Paul Sparkes

Paul Sparkes is a passionate yet straight-talking technology advocate who speaks honestly about how investing in innovative software can fuel business growth and success.

Wearing both a product and marketing ''hat'', he is a natural communicator who is frequently asked to contribute to industry features/event discussions, on business issues ranging from the role of a modern HR department, to future-proofing organisations with technology.

Regardless of the topic, his focus is always to hone in on actionable strategies that businesses of any size can implement realistically, and with real commercial benefit.

For the past 20 years he has held roles where he has been responsible for the growth of the high- profile technology companies he has worked with. These include Cascade, Exchequer Software, Advanced and the IRIS Software Group.
