A passion for learning and exploring brought Jorge Carrillo to the Czech Republic where he obtained a PhD in Applied Informatics from Masaryk University in Brno.
A Guest Lecturer at various universities delivering courses at Masters, Bachelors and Professional level since 2011, Jorge is no stodgy academic stuck in a conventional track of sharing his knowledge. He is a respected consultant specialising in project management and cyber security with extensive experience across a range of sectors.
He is an innovator, a serial disruptor firmly believing that if you give someone a framework and freedom to explore a topic or a process they learn more easily and perform to a far higher level. He applies this philosophy across the spectrum of his professional work in InfoTec: as a working professional, a certified trainer and as a university lecturer.
For over ten years he has contributed to various international conferences, workshops, and publications sharing good practices and methodologies related to InfoTech.
His mantra is:
“Let’s prepare people today to solve the real world problems of tomorrow.”
Jorge is currently developing what he terms an “incubator” for innovation and experimentation.
I want to explore new ideas in a safe environment, where breaking things, and failing is not an issue. I work with people who want to explore and to learn by doing. Many of the concepts we can learn are common sense, but it is hard to find a place where to put something in practice.
People tend to study a subject in isolation but Jorge considers it essential to connect the dots across different disciplines:
What I’ve noticed is that I can bring the experience from other areas to bring an holistic view to complex problems.”
Given his varied sectoral experience and professional activities Jorge is well equipped to bring, not just his knowledge, expertise, passion and enthusiasm to his consulting work and his teaching, but a unique holistic approach.
