CyberGuru’s Chief Guru appointed a Digital Champion
Advance Queensland has appointed Chris Jeffery a 2017 Community Digital Champion in recognition of his work with community groups and not-for-profit organisations.
The program, aimed at encouraging Queenslanders to become more digitally savvy, recognises people in the community who are helping the community achieve this goal. In particular, Chris was recognised for assisting “not-for-profit organisations and community groups secure and implement new technologies, access discounted software, and train to be more self-sufficient in maintaining their computers” as well as his work in helping people be safe online.
Since Chris commenced CyberGuru in 1997 at fourteen years of age, Chris has been instrumental in enabling and empowering clients to get the most out of their technology. Through his business, CyberGuru, Chris provides a range of Information Communication and Technology (ICT) services including consulting, design, support and training to small businesses, not-for-profit organisations and individuals.
Over the coming year, Chris will launch a new initiative to help Queensland teachers upskill and prepare for upcoming changes to the ICT curriculum. He will also roll out a range of face-to-face and online training for small businesses and organisations. Chris will also continue to educate and inform about technology and cyber safety by presenting to peer and community groups, and continuing his pro bono services.
We wish to thank the nomination by Councillor Jared Cassidy, Councillor for Deagon Ward in the Brisbane City Council.
