Since then he has been actively involved in software<br />development for the past five years. Certified as a ScrumMaster in<br />2008 he'd like to see Scrum more widely accepted in South African IT.<br />He currently works for Saratoga Software where he is involved in a<br />number of projects. Carlo is a member of the SUGSA team.<br /><br />Bio for Chris Tisdall<br /><br />Chris has a background in marketing and has been involved in e-<br />commerce and start-ups since the late 90's - both as a consultant and<br />business owner. He managed to weather the bursting of the dot-com<br />bubble and has worked across the financial services,<br />telecommunications and retail industries. He was part of the core team<br />that launched 20twenty as SA's first pure-play internet bank and<br />currently heads up Allan Gray's online channel. Chris has learnt<br />technology through osmosis by working with amazing technology teams.<br />He is fascinated by the possibilities of the web and the creative<br />genius that is simplifying the lives of everyday people.<br /><br /><br />You are welcome to forward this invitation to anyone else who you<br />think may be interested.<br /></span></p>
