Sit back and listen to an in-depth interview with Gifford Watkins

Founder and CEO Gifford Watkins, BSc, MA, MDiv

"I wanted to offer something better than HTML so I searched for months for the right CMS and found DotNetNuke. For the last ten+ years I've built 100s of portals and turned over the keys; setting non-technical people free from technical conventions."

Gifford is one of twenty-four DotNetNuke MVPs world-wide.

Gifford is the architect behind bringing the principals of Atlantic Web Fitters together and brings a highly informed background in business flow technology, web services and human relations. Gifford’s strengths include his personal communication skills and capacity to evaluate business processes in order to educate potential clients on the value of DotNetNuke web services to their businesses.

Gifford is a DotNetNuke MVP and speaks at Day of DotNetNuke events, spoke at the first DoDNN event in the United States; founded the Nova Scotia DotNetNuke User Group and hosted the first DoDNN event in Canada.
