Why Should You Read This?

Simon Lader

If you are an IT professional, or if you run sales or presales teams, or are simply responsible for HR or recruitment within the IT sector, this is the blog for you!

I’m Simon Lader. I have helped software vendors grow their sales and presales teams since I joined the recruitment industry in 1997. I am passionate about startups and early stage businesses. Also in how industry leaders grow their companies and develop world-class, high performing teams. I love learning from outside the industry and applying those examples to industry situations.

I love telling stories. And that is why you will find a ton of content in this blog. Topics and subjects range from silly to inspiring anecdotes which I’ve experienced myself, quick lists of things, tips and helpful guides, to long and informative discussions. You will find content on recruitment, its nitty gritty details and processes, and some hiring strategies and lessons I’ve learned from different situations I’ve been in. There will also be content on cybersecurity sales and recruitment, leadership and even some quick interview hacks!

Some articles, I’m hoping, would help your business, or perhaps, help you land a job. And since I am a huge fan of TV and film, you might even find yourself binge-watching the same shows that inspire my writing. Hopefully you gain the same lessons I do, even more. You can tell me about it too.

So if you would like to chat, I’m on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, and I can be reached via the Contact form.

About the Author

Simon Lader

I am an almost twenty year veteran of the IT industry. I started recruiting for IT sales and presales people in 1997 and I’ve been doing it ever since. Originally living in Manchester, UK, I now live in Las Vegas and specialize in helping startup and high-growth software vendors find the best sales and presales people in North America, Asia Pacific and EMEA. My three kids and long suffering wife keep me sane (or as close to it as possible) - which, as a Manchester United supporter, isn’t always easy! I probably watch too much Netflix and drink too much Single Malt Whisky, but what’s life without a little misbehavior now and then.
