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

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.
