Mali to Edinburgh, the origins of iHandover

“I was on the final leg of a journey that started out in Mali. As a consultant on an operating gold mine, my last act before packing my bags and heading home was to finalise a project communications plan. My efforts on the project had been frustrated by people in key positions not being available to make some pretty big, and important decisions. I felt like I was caught in a never ending loop of waiting for information and then re-communicating tasks requirements. With time alone on the flight to gather my thoughts I couldn’t help but think there had to be a more effective way for leavers to handover ‘works in progress’. Tiredness, the altitude or the excitement of coming home, whatever it was, somewhere at 35,000 feet the idea behind our solutions was born. After months of research and design I teamed up with David Taylor (our Chairman) to start iHandover. Over the years we’ve made fantastic progress and with an ever expanding team, the best is yet to come!”
