Dean Harries
IT Specialist, Web Developer & Problem Solver

My belief is every problem has a solution, it just needs finding. Titles change, but my main focus is learning continuously and innovation causing increased efficiency. I enjoy communicating with people and listening to their needs to find solutions and/or better their working conditions. When it comes to risks I do my best to manage, remove where can and if not, limit as much as possible. My previous experiences have given me the ability to work in a team environment as a valued member or a respected leader. As I continue, I hope to meet wonderful new people and enjoy great new experiences.
