MVP Insider – MVP Profile for Philip Elder

A little while back I was asked to provide some answers to a number of different questions for the MVP Insider.

There are questions about things like what I would ask Mr. Ballmer, what kind of software and hardware tools are in my tool bag, favourite software, and my hero.

In the case of the question about who is my hero, I could not choose just one person as there are many people both inside and outside of our industry that I look up to.

The two key heroes that I chose are:

  • In Business: Clive Bedoe (Live Search) is the former President and CEO of West Jet which started out as a small regional airline based out of Calgary, Canada. He, and is team, took West Jet from a regional player into what is now a national and international airline. In the mean time, West Jet continued to turn a profit during the early part of this decade when other airlines were not.
  • In life: My wife Monique Elder. For those of you that run your own I.T. shop business, you know the time involved in building a business. She does an incredible job managing our home life with three kids, as well as keeping my life balance just that: balanced. She is truly amazing and very supportive!

The rest of the answered questions can be found on the IT Pro Connection blog: MVP Profile – Philip Elder.

Thanks to all of you for your support and encouragement as well as for subscribing and continuing to read the blog! :)
