After graduating from university, I worked as a software/firmware design engineer for seven years, specialising in telecoms, speech recognition and speaker verification.
I then worked in technical marketing and marketing management roles in Motorola's European Cellular Infrastructure Division for seven years, specialising in GSM, GPRS and UMTS/3G technologies. I wrote, reviewed and edited white papers, brochures, technical sales training material, website content and technical RFPs. My particular focus was - and is - on making sure that highly technical content is made relevant and understandable for commercial audiences.
