Since almost half of the answers come from HP Experts, it should come as no surprise that Paul_Tikkanen is our Top Contributor for the 8th straight month!
A retired U.S. guardsman, Paul recently reflected on his past professional experience. We asked him how the Coast Guard and Red Cross prepared him for his role as a top HP Expert.
“Good interpersonal skills are an asset when communicating both orally and in writing to a diverse audience,” Paul explained. “One of the catch-phrases in the U. S. Coast Guard was ‘attention to detail.’ Paying attention to the details helps me to formulate the best course of action toward resolving the problem as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
Paul truly cares about getting you answers as quickly as he can so that you can get your product back up and running. He adds clarity to posts and brings conversations that are headed in the wrong direction back on track.
Paul embodies what this community is about. The more ideas and solutions in the community, the richer it becomes. It isn’t just the person posting the question that gets help; it is all the people who read it. And, with over 2,000 views per solved thread, that is a lot of people.
