“made a technophobe feel very capable and his patience made it very easy to learn.
Certainly knows his stuff!”
"a very effective trainer, he really took the time to understand my needs of the
software and remained patient throughout...a very competent trainer."
"the trainer achieved a perfect synthesis of sensitivity in his approach to teaching
and learning and comprehensive technical knowledge. I found the accessible notes
delivered after each training session particularly helpful. The clear, hands on systematic
approach was both encouraging and efficient. It was refreshing to have training delivered
by a technical expert who also understands the learner’s needs."
I have been a certified trainer of assistive technologies such as Dragon NaturallySpeaking
software for a number of years now, and have trained people in a wide range of industries
including the NHS, legal and large corporate organisations, as well as many higher
education institutions. I am also a Nuance-accredited trainer of Dragon software,
TextHELP-accredited trainer of Read&Write software and a Microsoft Office Specialist
(MOS 2013) as well as being a Fellow of the Learning & Performance Institute (LPI).
I additionally work as a technical and dyslexia assessor and trainer for the JobCentrePlus
Access To Work programme, which helps people with a wide range of disabilities.
I am based in London and together with a team of highly experienced trainers, we
train users across the UK. With over 16 years of experience I have a very good understanding
of the demands of an office environment and can provide training on how to minimise
keyboard and mouse use and to even speed up your work. The average user can type
up to 40 words per minute and yet speak at over 120 words per minute, and with Dragon
12 now having speech-to-text recognition accuracy up to 99%, its ideal software for
those users who just want to save time.
