We’d like you to meet one of our Business Technology Specialists – Nathan Rhodes
1. What is your role at Diamond IT?
I am a Business Technology Specialist and essentially my role is to identify businesses that are looking to improve their IT systems and facilitate discussions with them and the Diamond team.
2. What do you like most about working at Diamond IT?
Being a part of this great team. At Diamond you get a strong sense of being a valued asset, your thoughts are always considered and everyone is on the same page and working towards the same goals.
3. Why did you choose to enter the field?
I’ve been a bit of a tech geek ever since playing around with Commodore computers in the early 80’s. Technology is never boring because it is constantly evolving.
4. If you could meet anyone, living or dead who would you choose?
George Lucas. The story behind how he pulled together the original Star Wars film in 1977 is very interesting. He had to develop from scratch a number of revolutionary technologies. The whole production was beset with myriad problems from flooded sets, dust storms, malfunctioning electronics and many other major setbacks. Many people, including members of his own cast and crew, were convinced he would fail spectacularly. Yet George doggedly pursued his vision when hardly anyone else even understood it and all the odds were heavily stacked against him. In the process he proved everyone wrong and changed an entire industry forever. “Do or do not, there is no try”.
5. People would be surprised to know...
I am currently editing my own science fiction film, I’ve performed stand up comedy a number of times and I won money when I appeared on Millionaire Hot Seat.
