Educating, Entertaining and Engaging Learners Worldwide

I’m Elaine Giles and I’m a technology consultant based in Manchester, UK.

My passion is technology and I love to share that passion via live training sessions, video demos and written tutorials. I have a YouTube Channel with many training videos for design applications including Photoshop, Pixelmator, Acorn, Sketch and many more together with videos demonstrating the Microsoft Office applications, Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
One of my passions is designing slides and many of those I have designed and presented can be seen on my SlideShare page.

If I can help you please get in touch.
