Evan is the Founder and CEO of the Business Agility Institute; an international membership body to both champion and support the next-generation of organisations. Companies that are agile, innovative and dynamic - perfectly designed to thrive in today’s unpredictable markets. His experience while holding senior leadership and board positions in both private industry and government has driven his work in business agility and he regularly speaks on these topics at local and international industry conferences.

I'm a former Olympian, a geek, a gadget junkie, international speaker and author of "Creating Great Teams - How Self-Selection Lets People Excel". I have a masters degree in artificial intelligence and I know quite a lot about Agile.
We are one of the city’s largest businesses and the second-largest employer in the South Island, with more than 3,000 staff working in sites across Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.
We provide services and facilities to more than 380,000 residents, plus visitors. From rubbish collection and recycling, to cycleways, libraries, sports and recreation facilities, events and festivals we do it all – and a lot in between.
Our vision is to make Christchurch a city of opportunity for all – open to new ideas, new people and new ways of doing things – where anything is possible.
Stratos Technology Partners launched in 2011 with a small team working around David’s kitchen table. Initially working with a small group of Christchurch based clients, Stratos has grown to provide a full range of Software Development and SharePoint technology services to clients across New Zealand and Australia.
Our team has a range of expertise and experience you would expect to find in larger service providers, however we still use a personal touch when partnering with clients. Taking the time to understand our clients business is at the centre point of everything we do.
In 2017 Stratos was accepted into the Christchurch NZ High Growth Launch Programme and followed this up with the Amplifer Programme in 2018. This has been instrumental in developing our long term growth strategy and increasing the capabilities of our team.
We are involved in many community IT groups including Canterbury Tech, Microsoft Communities and local user groups. Stratos are members of the Microsoft Partner Network.
