David Coveney

Dave has been working in the IT industry since forever, starting with payroll development and ERP consultancy for large corporates. He is a keen traveller, photographer and motorsport enthusiast, but now puts family first as he’s in love with his two little boys.

He’s usually complaining about being busy and has heard of “inbox zero” but believes it to be little more than a concept.
