Hello! I’m Jon Bird. Originally from Chester in the UK, I recently moved to Melbourne with my Aussie wife. After 12 years of hyper growth across some of the most successful SaaS start-ups in London, it was time for a move to warmer climates! Currently working for InVision in Enterprise Sales looking after our largest and most strategic clients in the APAC region. I’ve worked at start-ups my whole career and been extremely fortunate to work with incredible people, clients and partners along the way.

Subject
Leveraging A Secondary CMS

Content management systems (CMSs) arose in the early 2000s, revolutionising website design. The old-fashioned style, stale content and low compatibility with mobile devices have driven website creation into the future. Modern, interactive, consistent multi-device and multi-channel experiences are now necessities. To power these online experiences, large, enterprise-level companies once were limited to a single, proprietary CMS. Today, many organisations are starting to realise that there can be tangible benefits to having multiple, strategic CMSs, including faster time to market, ease of use, agility and the ability to experiment and customise quickly.

FAQ with toggle section

  • Question 1

    Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.
  • Question 2

    But nothing the copy said could convince her and so it didn’t take long until a few insidious Copy Writers ambushed her, made her drunk with Longe and Parole and dragged her into their agency, where they abused her for their projects again and again. And if she hasn’t been rewritten, then they are still using her.Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia.
  • Question 3

    But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?
