   "But in reality, intuition is the condensation of vast prior analytical experience; it is analysis compressed and crystallized"
                 Elkhonon Goldberg - "The Wisdom Paradox"





It looks easy for the surfer, but his intuitive command of the board and the wave is only arrived at by repeated occurrences of similar but differing experiences. Likewise, what you got with T750 is business wisdom through experience that provided advantage for your business or project.

About John

John Caldwell - t750 business design consultant in GlasgowJohn had decades of experience working in various industries, large and small, as well as starting, owning and advising new businesses.

It all started in the latter days of secondary school, working summer jobs, primarily as an unskilled worker in the construction industry. After University followed a spell of working as a Physics Teacher, before moving into software systems development & design in large international manufacturing companies. With the experience gained in these industries and systems, the next stage was working in a variety of industries with clients of a Canadian rapid software development company.

The opportunity then arose to start a software development company to develop and provide a CRM packaged system to the UK Economic Development sector - indeed becoming the dominant supplier in England and Wales. The business then expanded internationally with its award-winning contact-centre software product.

Since 2001, it was about passing on these experiences to help other business or projects. Learn more about the experience which John brought to a project or business: see Career Summary and Education & Training below...
