Chief Technology Officer (CTO) in London, England: London:
"Travel into London is a marathon."

Chief Technology Officer (CTO) in London:
"Inspire through experience."

The role of a CTO is often stressful, and there will be times when system failures emphasise this. Plan for the worst, have a strategy and team on place to fix things and make sure to know what to do when that crisis happens (and it will happen)
