Welcome back to Reconnect, the biweekly series that catches up with former MVPs and their current activities.
This week we are thrilled to be joined by none other than twelve-time titleholder Dean Calvert!
Hailing from Adelaide, Australia, Dean Calvert is the founder, owner and managing director of Calvert Technologies, a multi-competency Microsoft Partner that provides high-quality information technology design, installation, support and advisory services.
With more than 20 years of experience working with clients in professional services, employment and training, and mining, Calvert Technologies is the only South Australian company to be a multi-year finalist and winner of the prestigious Microsoft Australia Partner of the Year award.
Dean's ability to explain complex technical concepts in a clear, non-technical manner has seen him speak as a business technologist at events across Australia, New Zealand and the USA for organizations including Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, ConnectWise and Kaseya.
In 2004, Dean was awarded Microsoft's Most Valued Professional award for his technical leadership and support contributions to the global business and technology community - an award he held until retiring from the program in late 2016.
Dean's mission is to grow people, equipping and enabling them to achieve their greatest potential. When he’s not at work, Dean says he enjoys classical music, cycling, and camping.
