With the amazing SMB Nation “TEAM JENNY” management group in-place, Harry is now available again for management consulting engagements.
- Philosophy: “I’m interested in engagements where I help solve business problems triggered by the industry-wide disruptions caused by Office 365 and cloud computing. If you are asking ‘What do we do now?' and are concerned about pivoting to new business models, I’m your guy! Hire me to help navigate uncharted Office 365 waters. Together we can capitalize on chaos.”
