IT For the SMALL or MEDIUM BUSINESS
IT should drive your business, not drive you crazy.
Let me be (or join!) your IT department so you can concentrate on what you do best.
Small Business IT
IT is part of your business whether you like it or not, and if things don’t work or you’re doing things inefficiently, that has a huge negative effect on your goals. I can help with all kinds of IT needs for the sole trader, small or medium business, and I’ve worked with everything from 1- to 300-person companies.
Cloud and Web Services
Email, file sharing and collaboration between team members are essential for any business, as are backups. I have experience of migrating businesses to suites like Office 365 and G Suite, including getting them set up with the various features within the suites. I can help you with setting up and getting the most out of other cloud services too.

Get started with my Small Business Checklist
Want to know what IT your small business needs to succeed? I've created a checklist that will let you give your business a healthcheck. And you don't even have to give me your email address! Here you'll find a short overview of all the important aspects of IT you need to consider. And if you need help setting them up, well, you know who you can ask.

BLOG: What IT does a Small Business need?
Whether you hire me to work for you or not, I’d love to see your business set up right so they can thrive. If you can do that without me, fine, and if I can give you some tips to get you going, that’s OK with me too. I’ll be providing helpful tips and ideas about what IT you as a small business owner need to think about.
And of course, if you need any help setting these up, running them or fixing them later, feel free to get in touch.
This blog post has been turned into a more usable format over on my Checklist page. Give your business a healthcheck and make sure you know what aspects of IT you need to have thought of. Or contact me and I'll help you through it. You're just starting...
When you're a small business or sole trader, you have to wear all the hats, including, for now, Operations Manager and IT Helpdesk. Even if you have a few people working for you, it's likely that they're working on admin or delivering client work, so a lot of the time...
Why HIRE ME?
Sometimes you just need a specialist
Even if you’re really tech savvy and quite like setting stuff up, as the CEO/business leader, an hour or a day of your time is precious. How far could you take your business if you had a full day? So why spend that day trying to work out how to make your CRM or your email system do what you want it to?
Your time is probably better spent making the most impact you can and making business decisions only you can make. Let me use the skills I’ve learned already so you don’t have to spend all your time reading help files on the Internet.
I'VE BEEN DOING THIS A WHILE
I’m an MCSA-certified Systems Administrator and I’ve been in IT for over 20 years. I’ve been using Office 365 since it was released, and I’ve managed an IT department that has had to serve a very wide range of IT needs, so I feel like I’ve seen almost everything.
I like to help people
People are what makes any business worth doing. I like to help people find new ways to do things, quicker or more effectively. A lot of people think they can’t understand technology, or that they’re jinxed. Usually that’s not the case – often things just haven’t been explained very well, using too much techy jargon and not enough real-world examples. I’ve been told I’m like a bridge between the two worlds of technology and real people.
I love to fix problems
When you are trying to do meaningful work and something is holding you back, I like to find out what it is, then find a better way of doing things so you can get more done with less stress.
Get in touch
What’s the biggest IT issue you have right now? Think about how it would feel to have that fixed. How long will it take you to fix it? Now think about what else you could do with that time. A lot? And it would be more fun? Good.
Now imagine you’re about to talk to someone who can get that problem fixed for you. What would you say? Click this button, and type it in the window that appears. Doesn’t that feel good?
