Hi! My name is Belinda Anderson, and I’m “The Training Lady”. I decided to start this blog after a suggestion from none-other than my wonderful mother… You see, I’m a computer trainer and I love what I do, so why not share that online, with those who can benefit from what I have to offer.
So here is a little about me…
Firstly I live in beautiful Sydney, Australia. I am a wife and proud mother of two girls.
Looking back at my final year of high school, I remember I wasn’t really sure what I wanted for my future career, I recall my mother saying to me “Why don’t you look at the Internet and see what that may have to offer you for a job?”, my reply was “The internet is not something I’m interested in..”.. How little did I know that the Internet and computers would become such a big part of my future career.
After completing my HSC I immediately begun working for a computer training company and quickly developed a passion for technology and learning. Soon I was involved in the technical aspects of running a training company and was constantly installing applications, troubleshooting issues, setting up printers, configuring internet access and more, but soon I just wanted to be the person standing up the front of the room showing a class full of participants how to use applications more efficiently.
I have been training since around 2002 and have trained participants from corporate executives, educators, private and community college students, and home users. No two courses are ever the same and I love that aspect of training! I love seeing the look on people’s faces when I’m able to show them a faster or more effective way of doing something that they have struggled with or that has been a time-consuming part of their job.
This blog is my opportunity to share with you my tips, tricks and best practices for using your computer efficiently in your home, office, classroom or wherever life has you typing on a keyboard or accessing technology.
I am available for onsite customised training courses within Sydney so if your staff and business could benefit from some professional development then feel free to contact me for more information. My business website is www.beltan.com.au
Now, I know that I’m going to get the question, “Where did you get the name of your blog from?”.. Over the years training I would often chat with participants who had seen me for multiple courses and would joke about how they would refer to me as “The Training Lady”. It always made me laugh and so I thought it was only fitting to use that as the name for my blog.
I hope you enjoy this blog and please feel free to send any feedback, or requests you may have.
