The ability to please people...
Outdoors, cars, motorbikes, Wine!
Prawns, petrol costs, rum
Whether you’re looking to engage his pre-sales skills or just looking for a good wine recommendation, Mike is your go-to guy. Mike Barnard leads the pre-sales team, looks after bespoke projects and loves getting his hands dirty with system architecture.
While we like to tease the “old man”, Mike is the most enthusiastic and creative thinker of our technical team. Mike lives in that multifaceted world of pre-sales and helps our channel partners and customers as well as our own development, support and sales teams to get the most out of our products. In other organisations, Mike would be “Head of Professional Services”, here at Selectec we do our best to keep him humble and make him the bridge between our teams. This all-round skill set makes him the perfect front runner to deal with any installation and integration requests.
Before any product or service enters our portfolio, it must go through Mike (the gatekeeper). Mike and his team(s) have years of hands-on experience with software in all the major verticals. If a product does make the cut, then Mike will be on hand to provide internal training and organise any proof of concept installs with our key partners.
Confident in front of end users and resellers alike, Mike thrives on doing what he loves most, helping people get the most from their investment. He is at the front line in promoting the Selectec product range and ensuring implementations are nurtured successfully. While we can sometimes be flippant about his speed, we admire (and would be lost) without his attention to detail and thoroughness and attribute a lot of our success to his hard work. As part of the pre-sales team, Mike has in-depth and extensive knowledge of the Pre- and Post-Sales Solutions market and is a key player in large contract wins by assisting the channel with tender requests.
We only ask that if Mike is coming to visit you that you leave two spaces in the car park as he has trouble parking his current vehicle. He also really hates writing about himself in the third person (oops!).
