I’ve done extensive training with a wide variety of clients from every walk of life and age group. I have a strong and decisive teaching style that puts the student squarely behind the wheel – hands on. Nothing else works, in my experience – especially with technology. Users, no matter how sophisticated, have hidden doubts and fears that need to be confronted and dispelled before learning can proceed. I’ve developed this style by listening and seeking to understand what problems my students have, via their words and actions. Helping a student find success as quickly as possible builds confidence which helps overcome learning obstacles further on.
I’m a skilled presenter – routinely called forward to explain concepts. I pride myself on making the big ideas accessible without “dumbing them down”, which insults everyone and does the basic concept a disservice. Analogies and metaphors are my strong suits, backed up by in-depth technical knowledge. I’ve been an avid student of technology for decades and have a passion for the future few can match. One must inspire to teach, in my humble opinion.
