Nadine Parkington

Hello, I am Nadine and up until 15 years ago I was bored with all of my jobs. I would learn it, and then step and repeat.

I moved into digital technology because it is always changing. If you have a thirst for learning more, understanding how things work and the dynamics of change, then technology is an exciting place.

I am a digital strategist I started in advertising and soon got drawn in by the sparkle of technology. Now for the past 8 years I have had my own business Think Nimble and I work with large corporate companies helping define their strategy of what to do in the digital world.

To work in any ever-changing environment you need to have a healthy appetite for change. Part of that appetite is driven by the rewarding nature of learning something new. But the difference between you and anyone else has to be your bravery in delving into something you don't know and spending time working it all out.

To be exceptional it's about sharing that information. IT can be somewhat exclusive, but always remember not everyone understands, but translating something complicated into something simple is like magic. You will always be of value.

So when you make the move into technology, keep an open mind and stay current. Think globally when you look at problems and finding solutions. Don't be afraid to reach out to people who look interesting, just remember to present yourself as interesting to them.

Anything is possible, it's up to you.
