About Your Trainer

Hello! I'm Steve

Throughout my career I have worked in pharmaceutical and medical device sales, marketing, information and training roles until my retirement in 2018. Following this, I have worked with computer systems from PCs running Microsoft DOS, early Apple Macs through to iPads, iPhones, Windows 10 and Android tablets and phones.  I hope I can show yourself and others how to confidently use and enjoy technology.
