I create and deliver digital training to small businesses that require help in a variety of subjects. I get to meet many interesting and inspirational people and hear about how and why they started their businesses. I help to de-mystify the many necessary digital skills needed for business success, bring them back to basics, so that everyone can feel that they can learn and improve their skills at whatever age and capability.
Having not originated from a techy background myself, I totally understand how daunting it can be to start and run a successful business, with limited digital knowledge. However, with patience and the correct up to date information, anyone can adjust and learn to create amazing content to help develop their brand. Being a part of this learning process is very motivational. My reward is to know that I am helping others to build their confidence and business at the same time.
I originated from a Hotel & Catering Management background, moved into Training & Development and ended up as a Tutor and Assessor for Apprentices within the Business Skills sector for many years. I have run two successful businesses, one of which is a Business Networking group. But to learn the specific skills needed for running those small businesses took a long time. So, my main aim now is to help, support, educate, encourage and enable others to learn in a more structured environment than I had.
In my spare time I like to do a lot of gardening, both at home and on our allotments, I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, reading, cooking and enjoy a large G&T on occasions.
