Help! I'm an IT Consultant - Why I Got into IT

OK, I admit it. I’m an IT consultant and that makes me about as popular as a fart in a lift.

Yes, you can put me with the Estate Agents and Accountants at a conference or networking event, and yes, I understand if you think I wear Star Wars underpants. I get it.

There was a time when I wished I wasn’t into IT and there was a time that I wanted to be anything but a geek. But the fact is, I’m good at being a geek and many of our clients have very successful and hassle-free businesses because of my skills (Jedi or otherwise). Once upon a time I didn’t want to be an IT consultant. In fact, I didn’t know what one was. I was however, really into IT -and in a big way!

It all began when I was a boy…

When I was a kid there was no social media, no Sky+ and Apple iPhones were something only Marvel could have dreamed up. When I was a boy the thing that got me excited were video games. I loved playing on Sega, Nintendo and my Gameboy, and I would spend hours upon hours beating the system and winning over the computer. I also liked artwork and animation and the video games gave me exactly what I wanted. They were happy days. It pleased me. Man against machine (in the form of tiny little men and warriors and sometimes bright coloured squares). I was solving problems, winning battles and learning all about User Experience, tech and strategy (not that I saw it that way). Yes, to me this was childhood.

Fast-forward to the here and now and I’m still a geek, but now I’m a geek with a mission. I make IT simple for people like you. I add on a service that no one really wants to talk about until they need it. I add to a small business what a large business takes for granted, and with Somerbys IT we give the full problem solving and backup support that you’d expect in a large corporation. I’m playing with bigger games now and I’m still learning (as we all do) the new and exciting (to me) industry of Information Technology.

You can take advantage of my life decision, you know. We have countless clients that consider us their go-to people for IT and we give them that big company back-up support for the small company payment plan.

Somerbys IT are the angel in the cloud, the imaginary IT department in your office. Somerbys IT could be your emergency call (just without the whole ‘Bat phone’ element).

It all starts with a conversation. Call me and I'll show you why you can’t afford not to use us.

Somerbys IT. We’ve got IT covered – have You?
