All of our trainers are friendly and professional in-house trainers who are experts in their subject(s) - we never use freelancers. Come and meet the team!
Andrew has a first-class degree in Biology, trained as a teacher, and studied for a PhD on the evolution of East African cichlid fish. He is thus one of the few people in the world who is an expert on both Lake Malawi cichlid fish and Visual Basic for Applications! Andrew has recently bought a house for the first time, and is spending much of his free time "enjoying" making it habitable.
Andy also has a first-class degree (Economics and Statistics from UCL). He started work as an analyst/programmer, then worked as a business modelling management consultant. He now splits his work time between writing web sites using ASP.NET and delivering training courses, and his non-work time between ferrying children around and playing football in a 6-a-side league (hence the picture).
Dave has an honours degree in Physics from King's College London. He now splits his time between writing database systems and web sites for clients and for internal use, and delivering advanced training courses in Access, VB and ASP.NET. Dave has a large collection of antique scientific instruments, but reserves his main passion for gliding, at which he is an instructor.
Jenny used to play badminton and netball, and is currently Wise Owl's only qualified Australian netball coach! She now divides her time between organising school sports and ferrying children around (the same children, in fact, as Andy's above …).
Michael would probably describe himself as a closet geek with artistic pretensions. Having studied music at Cambridge University he had an absolutely fabulous career in PR and communications before seeing the light and turning to IT training. In his spare time he builds and rides bicycles, makes furniture and nurtures his compost heap which he occasionally shares with the vegetable patch in his garden.
Sandi is the person you are most likely to speak to at Wise Owl - with Rachel (who hasn't yet got a cartoon, so isn't listed here yet!) she ably deals with sales enquiries and organises courses. Sandi divides her time between shopping with her daughter and patching up her son after his skateboarding injuries. Rachel (she whose cartoon is pending) spends her time catering for the needs of her 3 children - although she does occasionally disappear down to London to escape for the odd weekend.
We never use freelancers or contractors (here's why), so the face of the trainer for your next Wise Owl course is one of those pictured above!
