Tony Trollip

Tony Trollip has been in the ICT sector for just over 20 years with exposure to various technologies and their myriad of variances. His understanding of technology ensures that he has an in depth knowledge of many technologies as they are used and or applied.

“To be a successful independent in the ICT sector, you need to make peace with the ideas;
a) There is always something new.
b) There is always a different way of applying technology.
c) As soon as you think that you have seen everything, you have not.

I think to a degree I have made peace with the above and by doing so, I am open to all things new and especially the possibilities.”  (Tony Trollip)
