Churchill & Johnson and Your PC Guru
My company has two brands focused on the SME and Consumer markets respectively. This approach has allowed me to focus members of my team on the market that their skills best suit. We focus our efforts on the Bristol area (including the Bristol - Stroud corridor) so that our customers will receive the best service possible.
When the company was founded we used the slogan "computing for mere mortals" to express what we do. Computers and computing people tend to dictate how a computer should be used. We believe the user should dictate how their computer should be used and it is up to us to make the computer toe the line.
Over the last 6 years we have expanded on this, we now aim to make technology more accessible. We can fix your computer & computer systems, interpret techno-bable and help you work out what you need to make your business run better. We can be a knowledgeable friend to any director/business owner, helping you to make the right choice for you business.
A final thought if you don't understand the answer, its the wrong answer.

Your PC Guru offers a friendly reliable computer service for home customers. You get the same great, professional, jargon free service as our business customers, but with a focus on the needs of the home users. We keep our services reasonably priced. We do not charge any exaggerated prices for work that isn't needed.
We go far beyond simple repair, we provide advice and training as a standard part of what we do. It is a good days work when we have not only repaired the computer but also left its owner feeling far more confident in how to use it.
We have even put together some handy articles on our website covering the most common problems our customers face.

NEW - We have always provided one to one training to our customers. This training has been focussed on what they need to know to get more from their computer. Training has always been just one of those things we did. Due to the level of demand we are now receiving for our training work we are setting these up as services in their own right. We can provide bespoke one-to-one on customers own computers, to providing task focused group training on our own mobile suit of six computers. We will even learn how to use a piece of desired software in order to train our customers in its use.
In the beginning (it seems like such a long time ago)
I have been supporting computer users for over 10 years, starting with voluntary work keeping a local primary schools computers running, now providing technology help to any one that needs it.
It was inevitable that I was going to be involved in computing. My father worked for the health authority's computing division in the 80's. My occasional trips to his office were always filled with excited wonder.
The wonder had continued through earning a degree in Computer Science, completing a years work placement with Hewlett Packard, and learned from scratch how to run a company.
Founding my Company
I was at HP during a bad time for the company, large numbers of staff were laid off. I learned from that experience that I was not a “company man”, I prefer running a small company where I make the final decision and deal with the results.
My business was born from demand. During my studies I had earned a reputation among friends and relatives as a computer wizard that talked like a human. After the 20th person asking me to fix their computer because I listened to them, solved their problem and left their computer working the way they wanted, I decided that there might be a business in this for me.
Now I have developed a team who provide the friendly, reliable, professional service you would expect, with an absolute focus on your needs that you might not expect.
All Work ..
There is more to life than computers ( that might have just got me banned from being called a geek ). Away from work my life takes on a far more artistic air. I'm a keen dancer, I occasionally get time to act but more often I'm organising the lighting for plays and musicals around the Thornbury area.
