Steve Robinson - Middleware Specialist

I have worked in the Information Technology space for > 20 years across many industry verticals including Banking, Insurance, Retail and New Media.

My best qualities are communication written and oral and the ability to think on my feet. There is no such word as can’t. There is always a solution to a problem; communication is the key to success. Project management is about the ability to inform the appropriate stakeholders using communication feed-back loops.

Feedback from IBM Feb 2008: “Steven Robinson is a strong communicator, with a real drive to learn and understand, he has excellent problem solving skills, based on high quality WAS and Java on WAS ability.  He’s also exemplary at documenting as he goes and leaving useful scripting and assets for other people to reuse.”

Feedback from Chubb Feb 2007: “Steve is a dedicated individual who takes pride in what he does, he always conducts himself in a professional manner.  He is an excellent communicator, conducts professional intelligent meetings and deals well with suppliers and partners.”
