Two interviews in two days


I did another interview today for another business magazine. This article is about small but old players in the Australian software marketplace. It was put to me that there are more smaller software companies which have done well for two decades or more compared to bigger software companies.

To answer some queries I had to dig back through our records and look at the records with some clients we have back in 1981 and 1982. What amazed me from this research is how little I knew about business back then and how lucky we were to get through the first couple of years. It’s grounding to be reminded of these early days.

It’s only when I was putting the information I’d researched for the interview away that I realised we have just celebrated our 26th birthday.
