My mission

The days of ruthless capitalism are numbered!

The future of business is about people-centric leadership and a positive impact-driven culture!

Learning from my experiences, good and bad, my mission is to make a positive impact on people’s lives and our planet through technology and human values…

How? It starts with disrupting the legacy capitalistic mindset and embracing purpose-led, people-centric leadership. Establishing a company culture that gives every person equal opportunity to show and the support to grow their talents. A culture that values and fairly rewards everyone, irrespective of their gender, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, or any other differences. Not just doing a box-ticking diversity exercise for good PR (that many do). 

This is what responsible leadership is about. It’s about caring for people. And it’s good for business too.

Next, it’s about having a greater purpose instead of just maximizing profits (the old capitalist way). People and organizations must stop destroying the planet. 

Leaders need to start walking the talk, minimize their emissions and implement science-based plans, not what gives good PR. There is a lot of greenwashing and bullshit that must stop.

We all have a collective responsibility to do good. All organizations can afford to give for good causes – money, time, product, or a combination of them. If everyone does this, we will make a huge impact. 

Finally, it’s about making an impact on a global scale. I believe technology is a great catalyst for this. Global evolution is reliant on technological innovation. It’s ideally placed to scale impact, especially when driven by good human values.

At Smart Migrator, I am creating a positive impact-driven culture that has all of the above in its DNA. Our disruptive innovation will help thousands of companies to transition to green cloud operations, boost innovation and reduce their IT carbon footprint by up to 90%. We will show the world that tech that empowers business and helps the planet & society at the same time can grow big and be highly profitable too. It’s not about being traditional tech or tech for good. It can be both and we will prove it and inspire others to follow.

People-centric Leadership

People-centric leadership

Instead of being customer-centric, like some, I am people-centric. My view is that, if you look after your people, they will look after your business and your customers. And they will thrive, be motivated and passionate, and also tell other great people they should join. Do you see where I am getting at?

Success comes from having great people who have a strong bond and are dedicated to a common vision. Embracing people and caring about them is key, irrespective of their differences. Empowering their personal growth, giving them equal opportunity to voice ideas and opinions and to showcase their talents. And having fun every day – celebrating success as hard as working to create it. 

This creates incredible motivation & commitment. And this is how I will attract, grow and retain top talent.

Impact-led purpose

Impact-led purpose

People-centric leadership must be complemented by a strong purpose that people believe in. At Smart Migrator, we are on a mission to remove the barriers, solve big challenges and enable mass-scale cloud adoption. We want to help millions worldwide to benefit from the cloud.

Right now, many are unable to do so because of the unaffordable costs and high complexity to migrate (especially SMBs). Many also can’t utilize the cloud efficiently. This is unfair! Everyone deserves a chance! So, we are creating a world-first intelligent platform that makes it easy and affordable for all businesses.

Our tech also helps the planet. It enables companies to move to a green and efficient cloud and cut their IT carbon footprint by up to 90%. That’s impact!

Contribution and engagement

Contribution & engagement

Leadership and purpose give a strong foundation. It is elevated further by meaningful contribution – acting beyond just maximizing profits. Think ‘tech for-profit & good’, making a difference while being highly profitable. It is possible.

Some companies already have philanthropy as part of their strategy. We will do much more than most and support multiple non-profits dedicated to protecting our planet & humanity. We will donate part of our revenue, time & product to help worthy causes that make the world a better place.

We will also enable our talent to become impact champions for causes they care about. We will inspire our customers and partners. Together we will create an impact and have a lot of fun on our journey. And this will not stop us from growing big. We will do so while doing a lot of good along the way.
