Information Technology laced with Common Sense
I provide consulting and services to small businesses, not-for-profit organisations and individuals in and around Oakville or via phone and e-mail. While I prefer to build an ongoing relationship where I can add more value as I understand your business better, I can also provide support for a single project. In fact, that's how it began with many of my long-term clients.
As a semi-retired ex-IT Manager, ex-Database Designer and ex-many other IT-related positions with over thirty years experience, I can now do just about anything with computers. Of course, there are some things I can do right away and others that I have to learn from scratch. But that's the way I've done it since 1970 and the old dog still likes to learn new tricks, but I'll do that on my time, not yours.
I work from home in Oakville, Ontario (that's in Canada, west of Toronto) and work part time. That leaves me time for my family, volunteer work and hobbies. It also allows me time to work out the best way to solve your problem, because I'm a perfectionist still trying to kick the habit, but mostly failing! If I was working full time, I'd have to charge market price, but as I'm restricting how many days I work, it doesn't seem fair to charge that.
I thought at first I'd be taking on jobs in an "IT Manager" role, but life has a way of throwing a few curve balls. It seems that what many of you want is fairly straight-forward: cleaning up a Word document so that it reads well and looks right; creating a brochure, a logo or a diagram; developing a process to register people for a weekend workshop; summarising the evaluation forms... and so it goes on. Once in a while I have the pleasure of developing an application, like a custom membership database. Even though I'm not a web-site developer by profession, I'm surprised at how much web work I've been called on to do. I suppose common sense and an appreciation of how to make something clear, simple and useable goes a long way!
