Sam Watson - Life at Covéa Digital

Meet Sam who gets to explore the art of the possible with the latest technology

Life at Covéa Digital

My role as a Tech Principal means I get to explore and experiment with technology to understand the ‘art of the possible’. Working with a squad of principals at the top of their technical game, I use critical and lateral thinking to help create solutions that add value to the business in terms of customer experience, automated internal processes and proof of concepts for potential future capabilities. Suffice to say, I love my job! I’m constantly learning about disruptive technologies, and get the opportunity to share this across Covéa in forums like Lunch and Learns. My kids definitely give me the energy and increase my curiosity for all things ‘new, ’ and I take that and run with it in a work capacity - you’ve got to be curious when it comes to new technologies. And yes, negotiating with my 3 kids does actually help me keep calm, listen to each argument and help resolve conflict… again something that I face in my role as we sometimes create conflict with the concepts we create… no one said disruption was easy!
