Senior Event Timer and Manager
Times-7 Sport /Trident Results
Using Times-7 Sports and Trident RFID sports timing equipment I am responsible for providing sporting events with a complete timing and data management solution which involves controlling registration, timing the athletes and providing the event with results. Major events that I have timed included the Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge, IronMaori series and the Tour of New Zealand. I started timing events when I was 15.
In 2015 Times-7 Sports was merged with Time-It to create Trident Results. Due to the size of our operation, it is common for Trident Results to be timing multiple events in a single weekend. This requires a high level of preparation and logistics to which I am responsible for organizing.
As a senior timer, I supervise less experienced timers who are timing other events in different locations while I am also timing an event. This is achieved through the powers of cloud computing and applications such a Team Viewer. This requires a high level of preparation, communication, and technical know-how to achieve a seamless result in what is often a high-pressure environment.
Applying my love for accounting over the past 4 years I have slowly taken over the responsibilities of this area in Trident Results. I now completely manage Trident Results accounting and taxation.
In 2015 Trident Results set out to build an online event registration platform. Due to my information systems knowledge, event management and timing knowledge I was heavily involved in the development of the Trident Results online registration platform. Using the agile method two developers from Denmark and I built the now highly successful Trident Results registration platform.
I have managed Trident Results for the past 4 years while studying a commerce degree at Victoria University in Wellington, majoring in three different areas (Accounting, Commercial Law, and Information Systems). As events fall on weekends this requires total dedication and a high degree of discipline.
