Tech and Non-Tech Executives Learning Together

Welcome to the Squirrel Squadron, chaired by Douglas Squirrel. We are a diverse group of technical and non-technical executives from around the globe and from all types of organisations, who learn from each other and discover new ways to work together profitably.

"I created the Squirrel Squadron to fill the pressing need for co-operation across the technical divide, to end the mistrust and suspicion that too often separates 'IT' and 'the business'. In this community, we collaborate to ensure technology serves us rather than consuming us."—Squirrel
