Documentation and Planning
I am passionate about documentation and encourage my business customers to invest in it. Having seen such a high churn rate in NFP organisations and small businesses, the 1 thing that can improve your business is to have an operations manual and keep it up to date.
Planning is crucial to getting the right Technology solution in the right timeframe. There are lots of technologies to assist but that’s the easy part!

Why do my skills make a difference?
Tech can be a confusing barrage of acronyms and product names for many.
Being an IT Architect, I understand how to craft technology solutions. My broad experience considers far more than the point solution. This enables you to avoid ‘gotchas’ down the track.
Over 30 years in IT, if you can think of it, I’ve probably done it. Actually done it. I have worked with large corporates, small businesses, not-for-profits, sole traders, individuals and families.
How does this help you?
The best IT will take into account your current and future needs, and balances cost and complexity against benefits and ease of use.
IT is an investment and if it’s something that creates a road block for you in the future, locks you in, or has a high operational cost, it’s a bad investment.
