Bruce Cowper

IT Pro Advisor

Microsoft Technet Canada.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to offer you a warm welcome to my Blog.

 

As an IT Pro Advisor for Microsoft Canada, I am passionate about reaching out to and engaging with the IT Pro community across Canada. In my role with Microsoft, I focus on working with a broad range of audiences within the IT Pro community to foster relationships and convey Microsoft technologies and solutions. I am proud to be able to leverage my real life hands-on experience to relate to the challenges faced by the IT Pro community today.

 

I work as an integral part of the Microsoft team that drives awareness, education and training through events and directly engaging with Canada’s professional communities, including IT managers, infrastructure specialists and architects as well as systems integrators, independent software vendors (ISVs) and community leaders.

 

Before moving to Toronto and joining Microsoft, I was based in United Kingdom, where I built a reputation for excellence with my own consultancy firm, specialising in Infrastructure Design, Project Management and Security Consultancy, working with companies large and small.

 

Prior to working for Microsoft, I also held positions on the board of directors of several IT companies across the UK, providing consultancy and leading the expansion of the technical expertise and customer experience. I have also put this knowledge to good use for private and public sector projects on behalf of several world-wide organisations.

 

I hold a degree in Computer Systems Engineering as well as a number of industry standard qualifications.
