Listen to the CompTIA Podcast Interview with Matt Barton of Ostrich IT


Matt Barton of Ostrich ITI say this a lot, but one of the biggest benefits of being the Chair of the CompTIA UK Channel Community is that I get to chat to some of the best and brightest people within the SMB IT Channel.

Some of these conversations produce absolute golden tips and insight, and so there is many a time I wish I had recorded them!

So we’ve started to do just that! With the help of the folks at CompTIA UK, I’m recording regular Podcasts interviewing members of the UK Channel Community.

This month I’ve interview my old friend Matt Barton of Exmouth based Ostrich IT.

Ostrich IT logoMatt is well known in our space for being a real road-warrior. Despite living on the South Coast, he’s up and down the UK’s motorway network visiting clients, his peers and user group meetings on a regular basis. In our Podcast, Matt shares his journey of moving from the Midlands to Exmouth to setup a Managed Service Provider in what would generally be considered a tough market to establish a foothold.

You can listen to the Podcast in one of three ways.

The Podcast is around 15 minutes long, so ideal for the commute to the office or a lunchtime listen.

Would you like to be featured in an upcoming Podcast?

Is there anyone within the UK Channel that you would like to hear from?

Do let me know!

    Caron - While I'm unable to offer Podcasting advice myself, I'd encourage you to check out Cliff Ravenscroft at - an invaluable resource for newbie Podcasters like you and I! Also, you might reach out to Matt Barton at Ostrich IT in Exmouth - Matt is a great guy and can offer all sorts of technical advice!

    Hi Richard, I am just learning to podcast and was wondering if I get stuck, could you give me a lesson? I am also in Exmouth.

    Nick - I'm unsure of the iTunes link myself, so I'll ask CompTIA UK for details and share it here. In terms of interviews, Karl and I may have something upcoming soon - so watch this space!

    Nice work Ric. Do you know what the feed will be called when searching for the podcast? I use Instacast on the iPhone and I can search for podcasts there. Perhaps Karl P would be a good subject for an interview, he's done plenty of stuff obviously, but usually talking to about other people, rather than himself.
