  • Chris Huntingford

    Chris Huntingford

    Global Power Apps Lead

    I’m a geek and proud to admit it! I’m also a rather large, talkative South African who plays drums, wears horrendous Hawaiian shirts and has an affinity for engaging in as many social gatherings as humanly possible, because, well….I want to experience as much as possible and connect with as many different people as I can! I am, unapologetically, Myself! This zest for interaction and collaboration has led to a fixation on community and an understanding that by bringing people together in the right environment, ANYTHING can be achieved.

    I have an intense enthusiasm for technology. I am a terrific tinkerer, a passionate problem solver and a magical maker. As long as I am creating something, I feel fulfilled. Technology provides me with my creative outlet, especially in a digital format. My core focus is on the Microsoft Power Platform, a perfect consolidation of digital technology creating a symphony between both right and left brain hemispheres.

    I love to explore the huge mountain of digital building bricks provided by Microsoft to create amazing solutions and solve real problems. I love to bring people together to talk about the amazing things that can be created and can be used to change the way organisations work. I enjoy watching as people, both inexperienced and seasoned, build things and then realise that technology and learning have no boundaries. The sense of digital inclusion within community is what I strive for.

    I look forward to connecting with each and every one of you!
