We Need to Change the Channel

By Barry O'Sullivan, CEO | January 30, 2015

This article was written following Barry O'Sullivan's panel discussion at the January 2015 BT Evolution Forum in Dublin that took place during the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition, and was previously published on the BT Ireland blog.

I had the chance recently to speak at the BT Evolution Forum in Dublin on “The Rise of Digital Channels”. It was a fantastic event and it got me thinking about the concept of channels when it comes to online business.

A New Journey Begins

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.

This morning we announced our new company Altocloud. In my journey up to now I have led some large divisions for Cisco, I have been involved in the acquisition of some great tech companies like WebEx and have been an active angel investor in startups in California and Ireland. I’ve even been a ‘Dragon’ investor on TV’s Dragons’ Den, Ireland’s version of Shark Tank. As I set off on this new journey, I am confident because I am not traveling alone. An amazing team has formed between Ireland and California and I am proud to be part of it.
