Disrupt by Distology – Episode 1 – Ian Murphy
We’re kicking off the first episode of ‘Disrupt by Distology’ by raising awareness of cyber security with the brilliant Ian Murphy, Co-Founder, LMNTRIX, CEO of CyberOff, scouser & general comedy genius!
Welcome to this month’s episode of Disrupt! Hayley sat down with CEO of ANS Group, Paul Shannon, and discussed his journey into tech and how business leaders can be doing more to recruit talent into the industry.
“I stopped excelling in acedemia when I left primary school, so there’s a large part of my acedemic life where I really didn’t put the effort in that I should have done. “
This month’s guest is CEO of ANS Group, Paul Shannon! Despite not succeeding in academia, Paul found a love for technology at an early age. He quickly realised studying business and economics at university was not for him, and landed his first IT job working as internal support. Working for VM-Aware was the turning point in Paul’s career, where he truly realised what he wanted to do with his career. In 2009 he began working for tech firm, ANS Group, where he said yes to all the opportunities that came his way, and eventually became CEO.
Disrupt is a podcast where host Hayley Roberts, CEO of cybersecurity distributor, Distology, is joined by guests to challenge the stereotypes in the IT industry and highlight the innovative ways businesses are working and overcoming these issues. And generally just having a good time being disruptive!
