In my last post Computers in the 90s - my knowledge grows I talked about setting up our Computer Training Centre to train the users of our software programmes and also basic computing skills.
I had already attended quite a few Instructor led computer training courses. Sitting in these classes I had watched fellow delegates. Some had come along merely to get a certificate of attendance and daydreamed their way through the day, others were completely lost and there were a few who coped very well. In those days we had thick computer training manuals that we worked through step by step.
About 15 years ago I owned a Pastel Accounting and Payroll Software Training Centre. At the forefront of computerised accounting in South Africa a well advertised feature of the software was that you didn't need to be an accountant or bookkeeper to use this great software. Ideal for small business owners.
I quickly found that the people who registered on the courses had very different skills levels and needs:
I help you to use technology without fear to streamline your administration systems, connect with your customers and suppliers and close more sales.
From helping you to understand your business and creating a detailed plan to ensure you don't make costly mistakes, I will help you implement the right systems for your business.
Understanding why you need a website, what the purpose of YOUR website is, how to create a marketing strategy using newsletters, the need to have new great content, interacting on the right Social Media platforms and then analysing what does and doesn't work is how I can help you.
Using Google applications and Sage Online Accounting to streamline your administration and financial systems and ensuring that your files and data remain safe.
Training your staff to use these systems is vital to the successful running of your company. I can assist you with training via Skype, or if you live in Kwa Zulu Natal South Africa, one on one sessions or small group workshops.
I started Braving Technology after numerous technololgy challenged friends and family asked for help to set up blogs, websites, and to help them with all their basic computer questions.
