About The Speaker

Helen Power

My interest in computing was sparked 40 years ago when my primary school teacher brought in a computer into class and showed how quickly it could count from 1 to 100. I was hooked. Nagged my parents for a computer and taught myself to code. Fast forward a number of years, armed with a degree in Computer Studies, I began as a Software Engineer at APD Communications moving through the company into Project Management and then into Development Management. In the 20 years at APD, key projects include the provision Emergency Control Room systems for a number of Police Forces in the UK and in the UAE and, my favourite project, Dubai Airport. Then onto 4 years with Giacom World Networks as Head of Software Development just at the start of Giacom's rapid growth. I spearheaded the implementation of the company's e-commerce platform, cloud. market. Now with Reckitt as part of the Digital Product Team getting my hands dirty once again with cool tech.
