This week's episode of Conversations with Tech Experts features Philip Elder, Senior Technical Architect and Certified Expert. Philip joins Experts Exchange CEO Randy Redberg and Director of Bus. Dev. Thomas Bernal to discuss the best ways to lead a team of IT professionals. The conversation begins with an introduction to Philip's IT journey and his life in Canada. He discusses how his commitment to on-premises Microsoft solutions has ended up paying off - and how the hybrid cloud can serve small businesses. Philip expresses admiration for DuckDuckGo and how it's revolutionizing the way we search the internet. He shares the primary reason he enjoys leading IT teams - "Imparting Knowledge" - and then dives into best practices he's found for managing groups of highly intelligent employees.
