Message from Daren Hawes

Hello, My name is Daren Hawes and welcome to my profile. I like to think of myself as a professional business man trying to make a difference. As much as I would love to change the world and help starving refugees (wouldn’t everyone?) I find myself helping people with their business systems. This could be a website, Customer Relations System (CRM) or maybe a collaboration tool like SharePoint all wired together to work as a whole and providing business process automation.

My passion stems from the late 1980’s (yes, before the Internet and email as we know it!) using hardware made by Commodore, Apple or Microbee. These powerless 8 bit computers did it for me – I was hooked. I remember my father telling me that there is no future in these things and I should focus on a real job! Funny - when I was able to deck out his home with a full entertainment system including the latest flat screen technology and surround sound as a gift, all stemming from my passion of technology, his tune changed (love you Dad!).

Now I find myself leading our strong team at Web Design Magic and Directing Konsult Internet Consulting. This keeps me busy traveling Australia and the world talking to people and helping them with their business process automation. Let’s face it, business is different today than it has been in the past. If we kept doing what we did yesterday, there will be no tomorrow. The trick is using automation and systems to give you an edge!
