Corporate Beginnings

I worked in the corporate world for over 20 years, predominantly in technical Senior Sales roles, with  great exposure to every type of business, in terms of sector, size, challenges and business areas.  I predominantly solved problems in the areas of Project Management and IT, most recently in the world of cloud based hosting.

My experience within IT / technical environments goes back to the days you could only access the ‘world wide web’ with a modem and a fixed phone line – and I was part of a Global Account Team that built Nokia’s first website. Back then, websites were a novelty with hardly anything interactive about them.  

Disillusioned by the need to hit targets over customer satisfaction, I left that environment behind to help smaller companies to achieve great things. I get greater work satisfaction and I get to geek out all day!

Releasing That Inner Geekdom...

In 2017 I set out to become a full time web developer. After re-training and joining Univers Labs, I was introduced to WordPress, where I worked on websites including

THE INNER TEMPLE | SAFFRON BRAND CONSULTANTS | JACK MANCHESTER | ALAN TURING INSTITUTE | SCIENCE GROUP

I went on to freelance under my own company name and my first 3 clients came off the back of my ‘other’ business, eWoof dog day-care.
I now specialise in helping small businesses to create beautiful functional websites.

“The creation and promotion of the eWoof website pushed our business forward immensely, taking it to a fully viable, ‘fully booked’ dog day-care business.  The website stands out compared to many dog boarding businesses, to the extent that the Licensing Inspector was convinced we were part of a large franchise. With the addition of basic SEO and local promotion, we now have more enquiries then we can possibly accept and pay for no additional advertising or promotion.”

What's with the name?

I seem to know a lot of random stuff. This earned me the nickname Beknowin’, which I am still called today.

Twelve years ago, I was on a weekend away with the girls. I remember it well, 25 June 2009 – the day Michael Jackson died… which meant the airwaves were full of MJ hits 24/7.

Anyway, throughout the day, random questions were asked for no particular reason. Something might have been heard, seen or said and one of my friends would just have a follow up question. All day I seemed to have the answers.  The final straw, ‘What’s that African food, you scoop it with your fingers and mop up the gravy?’, to which I replied ‘Fufu’.

What else can you say to someone who is clearly the queen of random general knowledge except, ‘how are you so beknowin’? ’
And that’s where the nickname came from, Beknowin.

I like to think of it as ‘someone who knows’ and hopefully I know enough to deliver good websites that my customers love!
