Founder of Quick Intelligence, Steve is a qualified and skilled Qlik consultant with over 20 years’ experience in developing, building, and deploying business solutions that solve the seemingly impossible. He is the lead consultant, developer, and trainer for QI, devoting his time to enabling business insights, through data, which far outreach client expectations.

As a self-proclaimed control freak Steve demands the very best from himself and his small, agile team of consultants to ensure intelligent solutions for many business sectors including retail, finance, pharmaceutical, and distribution. He only works with awesome people so you know that, as a client of QI, you have access to consultants whose talents match his.

Steve has been programming since the days of his ZX Spectrum and his programmer ponytail, honing his skills on Delphi, Visual Basic, and MS SQL server, searching for programs that could evolve from data repository to create output that truly impresses. He has sought to work on a design, build, deploy basis in every industry he’s touched, from helicopter flight emulating to bespoke financial house software. It was at web-based banking software provider, Vega Solutions, that Steve’s love affair with QlikView began, and he realised he had found the software he wanted to spend all his time with: Quick Intelligence was born.

Steve is an esteemed authority on Qlik products: he is the author of a leading blog, technical editor of choice for a number of Qlik publications, and is a Qlik Luminary and Community MVP. Steve uses his collaboration and communication skills to ensure that every customer has access to this wealth of knowledge and experience on every project: the answer is in there.

Steve is the first to admit that down-time is scarce, but when he’s not being Mr. Qlik he is inducting his children into the ways of coding through Python and Tynker, or being hailed as Baloo by his Cub pack.

This is a man obsessed with finding solutions to the unthinkable problem, with consuming and presenting data in QlikView, with enabling business insights beyond expectations. Contact Quick Intelligence soon and let it be your data. Your business. Your expectations.


I have contributed to a number of QlikView books as technical reviewer, working with the authors to ensure accuracy of content and the coverage of topics.
