Mark Elwell

This is My Story

I have been involved in the computer industry for most of my working life in both technical and customer areas.  For most of this time I have been self-employed apart from a period when I was head-hunted to form a specialist computer development office in Bristol for a large multi-national firm of quantity surveyors. Since 2009 I have also been employed as a part-time Network Manager in a Special Needs School. My role involved identifying and introducing new technology across all areas of the school whilst maintaining a quality teaching environment.

Whilst continuing to enjoy the technical demands of keeping up with the rapidly changing Information Technology environment, as a self-employed person I also appreciate the importance and usefulness of my skills in establishing and maintaining good relationships with clients. My work takes me into small businesses where I am often involved in training and liaising with staff at all levels.

I am a committed Christian involved for many years in our local church including several years as a trustee of the church. I appreciate the benefits that valuing others and good communication can bring to family, church and business life and that a successful team comprises people of different personalities and styles.
