"Dream big, start small, begin now!"

Robin Sharma

Would you like to be more confident using your tech?

There’s no escaping it! We carry around in our pockets & bags mini computers with the power to connect us with loved ones, share ideas with anyone around the world, and learn pretty much anything we want to at the touch of a button. It’s mind blowing!

Plus most of us also have our own computers at home!

We can use them for everything from paying the bills, running our businesses, keeping in touch with family, watching our favourite shows, playing games, listening to music or creating our own, creating videos, photos, writing, reminders, shopping lists … the opportunities are endless and can be overwhelming!

The internet is a wonderful resource and there are so many things you can teach yourself for free. There are also an ever growing number of books you can buy on running a business, social media, marketing and websites.

Despite all this information being at our fingertips, nothing beats being shown how to do something in person, it saves you the time searching for answers and you can ask any questions that come up as you go along.

Action breeds confidence and courage

Supportive one-to-one training

I love helping anyone who is interested in learning something new become confident with, and get more use out of, their tech. For example:

  • Are you new to using an iPad, iPhone or computer and would like someone to help you get started with the basics? 
  • Do you want to Skype family and friends but are not sure how? 
  • Do you have millions of photos and videos on your phone, or in the cloud, but you’re not sure what to do with them now? 
  • Or would you like training or help on a specific program? 

I’ve been using iPhones, iPads & iMacs for years and am a veteran of Microsoft Office. I can also offer help with many other programs including WordPress, iMovie, iTunes, Facebook, Instagram, Skype, Twitter and Canva.

First I find out what you want to achieve and then tailor individual one-to-one training, with clear objectives, so you become confident using your technology.
