Cross the Bridge to Success with my help.

Background

My experience is extremely broad and deep.

I have a degree in Business Studies and then worked as an accountant, obtaining my CIMA (ACMA) Qualification in the mid 1980s.

In the early 1990s I switched my career to Programming, concentrating on VBA and the Microsoft Suite of Programmes, Excel, Access, Word, Outlook and PowerPoint, specialising in their automation to save clients both time and money. The applications built often combined the use of more than one of the programmes. E.G. Excel to process the data and Outlook to distribute Reports.

In addition to VBA I also picked up knowledge of HTML and some CSS.

My clients have been from a very broad spectrum, Manufacturers, Wholesales, Distributors, Retailers, Not for Profit and Central Government.

Personal Profile
Having qualifications and experience in Accountancy, IT and Teaching English as a Foreign Language gives a unique combination of skills allowing theory to be put into practice.
With over 25 years of experience as a VBA Macro Developer who specialises in Finance Systems the obvious next step was to teach it online. Now however the priority is to get some more “hands on” contracting experience in this field to stay up to date with current trends.
