Leigh Purvis

A graduate of Newcastle University with a Masters in Maths, Leigh is a welcome addition to our team here at The IT Trainer.  A highly regarded IT specialist, who has been recognised by Microsoft as an MVP (“Most Valuable Professional”) eleven times, his 21 years’ experience in database development provides our clients with tailored solutions to meet their specific requirements. 

He places particular emphasis in understanding what the client requires, to quote Leigh, Determining a business' needs is as much a skill as any area of database development.”  Whilst Microsoft Access has been the cornerstone of his recognition (a published author and article writer on the subject and a skill which remains much in demand), he has used it in conjunction with SQL Server as his database of choice for many years.

A native of the North-East, he now lives in South Yorkshire and travels throughout the UK to implement client solutions.  When asked about his hobbies, Leigh’s amusing reply, typical of him, was I enjoy thinking about what hobbies I might like to have again when I find the time”.
