Alastair brings a wide range of experience to The IT Trainer. Prior to developing an interest in IT, Alastair spent time in areas as diverse as manufacturing and the merchant navy – where, on a long voyage across the Pacific Ocean, he ‘borrowed’ a cabinmate’s computer – and so started a new career!
Alastair has worked in IT training for nearly thirty years in roles such as admin, sales, courseware author, trainer and consultant. At first, he learnt all aspects of the business, employed within a training company, but soon switched to freelance training and consultancy and continues to present courses in MS Office, in particular high-level Excel, including programming and development. His training approach is very much hands on and achieves consistent excellent results.
Alastair is based in South Oxfordshire and spends much time tramping the local Chiltern Hills and other fitness pursuits. He cooks a mean Sunday lunch and has been known to offer ‘home brew’ to wash it down.
