David Cartwright

Microsoft SQL Server Consultant/Developer/DBA


Over the 25+ years’ of my IT career my main role has been one of Analyst Programmer/DBA, more recently in a senior capacity. Although I am well versed in a number of programming languages, database technologies and platforms my current emphasis is on SQL Server. From early in my career I was exposed to traditional Software Development Life Cycle methods, with which I am fully conversant although now I would characterise myself as a proponent of the Agile development model due to the inherent flexibility offered by this approach. At certain points during my career I have been required to guide other team members in both their technical and strategic approach to various situations, notably during my time in Munich where I was responsible for training a small group of inexperienced colleagues. There have been other occasions where I have coached less expert colleagues, most notably at Bray Leino, Redledge, X Channel Marketing and Tech Mahindra.
During my career I have been required to deal with people from many different cultural/technical backgrounds and varied levels of seniority from director level down. This has equipped me with excellent communication skills, with often there being a need to not only communicate at a suitable technical level but also be able to overcome any language barrier that may exist.
