What qualifies you to deliver the presentation?

I have been working with both Apple (IIe first) and PCs since 1981, using these for fish farming and then dairy/arable farming. Having retired from farming in 2000, I worked with LearnDirect teaching farmers how to make use of computers in their business.
I now provide support for the small and micro business in the Pewsey/Swindon area on safe and productive use of both Apple products and PCs.

There’s more?

Plus, of course, we’ll have round table intros (30-60 seconds – we ask that you don’t overrun), and networking.

The meeting closes at 9-00.

Come along and join us – you will be most welcome.

Business Village is a great way to network and to develop your business and your personal skill. Come along and try us out.
