The current situation is certainly unprecedented. Here in the UK, hotels, bars, gyms and high street shops of all descriptions are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many businesses are “on pause” praying that the lockdown will lift sooner rather than later. With staff still on the payroll and being paid through “furlough”, many companies
Supporting Business Owners And Their Technology
Solving problems for small businesses and business owners is something I’ve done all my working life and I still love to help where I can.
The challenges today for business owners are considerable. In a smaller business, the owner wears many hats. Financial Controller, Head Of Sales, Marketing Manager, Customer Support and Service Delivery Manager to name but a few.
And then there’s the Technology that is so critical to a small business these day. Email, data storage, document management, customer relationship managements, cyber-security, website hosting, online meetings, marketing funnels, desktop and mobile device security. The list goes on.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the technology and suspect that you could be doing things better, then maybe I can help.

Business Email Configuration
We all have a love-hate relationship with email, but it is one of our biggest communication tools today. If you need some help configuring email addresses or migrating to another service provider, I can help.
Who I am working with
Let’s have a 15 min chat and see if I can help or signpost where to get help.
Busy entrepreneurs may well embrace the need for technology, but most do not have the time to study and get the best from it – so they ask me and I either help them directly or signpost where best to get the help they need.
Like entrepreneurs, business owners cannot afford to get bogged down in the details of making their business communications slick. I work with a number of business owners to help them with their online technology.
I’ve supported a few agencies with their need to have critical systems and infrastructure backed up and monitored agains security risks. I’ve also help configure challenging content management based websites.
Maybe you have a website or email issue or some other technology challenge.
Or it might be that as an entrepreneur, your biggest challenge is NOT knowing what what your “biggest” actually challenge is.
