We're a diverse bunch of people at HarmonyPSA - and we think this is one of our biggest strengths. First up in our 'Meet the Team' series of blog posts is our senior consultant, James Sponder. James is one of our longer-standing members of staff and what he doesn't know about Harmony isn't worth knowing, quite frankly. We pinned him down to find out more his job, his interests outside of work and his secret prior career in a most unexpected place...

Where are you from?

The North (of England).
 
Can you tell us a little bit about your role at Harmony?
I help our prospects through the pre-sales process.  It involves a lot of discovery, even more demos and hopefully ends with a new customer.
 
What were you doing before you joined us? 
I worked for a huge software company and was a small cog in a big wheel!
 
What made you decide to work in software sales? 
I've always been interested in computers and software - I wrote my first code at the age of 8 (this was in the 80s, before this was normal!).  The sales part was an accident (like most people in sales) but once I started, I was hooked!
 
What do you enjoy most about your work? 
Finding out about all the different businesses that are out there and helping them truly improve the way they do things. 
 
Is there anything you've done at Harmony that you are extra proud of ? 
There are a couple of hidden gems I'm proud of but the things I'm most proud of are times when I've configured/customised to system to meet a difficult requirement. I won't bore you with the specifics but this happens all the time due to Harmony's flexibility!
 
If you were given an extra day each week, what would you spend it doing?
Playing golf.
 
Tell us something about you that may surprise us. 
Before I got into IT, I used to manage a nightclub in Blackpool.
 
 
Book a Demo
