I have been managing international teams on global improvement programmes for FTSE and Fortune 100 companies for the last 10 years or so, and have a pretty good grasp on managing productivity from myself and teams of up to 100 - but still loads to learn.

Got my Prince2 foundation, and familiar with it through various public sector contracts.

I am a long term member of Mensa, the high IQ society, and head up two professional bodies in Scotland: ISACA and the Institute of Information Security Professionals.

Have founded two consultancies, and run large teams for two global professional services firms - so have an excellent view of the balance required at both ends.

Tend to look at the bigger picture, rather than the benefits of a specific tool.

No but you have various ones which do encryption on the fly, with only you having the keys, like SpiderOak

comment How safe and future-lasting is my personal life on the cloud?
Of course I believe it - I encrypt the data myself to a level definitely considered as overkill before I send it into the cloud.

RobDel - no. If you read my post, you will see that everything I store 'in the cloud' is encrypted, so this is not like giving a stranger the key at all. As regards benefits - it depends entirely on your needs. The cloud does provide many organisations with cheap and convenient applications, storage, platforms etc while simplifying things like support, configuration, maintenance etc

comment Can someone really have multiple careers?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about personal productivity.

comment Can someone really have multiple careers?
This is not on topic here, and while interesting, I'm really not sure it is a useful question for any Stack Exchange site. The answer is demonstrably 'yes' as many individuals have multiple careers. I myself have my main career in my chosen industry, and have a well paid side-career with my rock band.
