Priscilla Morris, Loud & Clear voice coaching

I have attended many of Trevor’s B2B events and always find them well attended by both exhibitors and visitors. The events are well organised and the mix of businesses and visiting guests has provided me with valuable contacts on every occasion. I find Trevor’s advertising for the events to be open and honest and not over-played as with some other Expos I have attended. Trevor is always on hand to offer friendly advice during and after events – thoroughly recommended

Trevor is an expert when it comes to cybersecurity. Over the years, Trevor has given sound advice to help me protect my website from spam-bots and other security threats. If you’re looking to protect your IT systems and your website, I highly recommend speaking to Trevor.

Nigel Trasler, Integral Management

Trevor has looked after my companies on line back up facility for the past 3 years. He was a great help when I lost data, I went to his house one Saturday morning and spent a few hours with him restoring the vital data. It’s one of those facilities you are very grateful for when it all goes wrong. A very good business tool. Trevor is a very knowledgeable person to do business with

Sammy Summers, Business Live @ Bistro Live

I really enjoyed today. Seeing as it was my first networking event I felt really welcome. You
did a great job with hosting the event. The coverage was brilliant, speaking with so many
different people and many had not heard of Bistro Live so it was good to spread the name.

The venue was great, many thanks for accommodating my dietary requirements.

I look forward to attending again.

Gordon Diffey, WSI – We Simplify the Internet

Trevor is a great networker and the B2B events that he puts on with Network Midlands are great value and generate real business. I have no hesitation in recommending Trevor and his services, but most of all because he is a great guy.

Louise McCormack, Timbateq Limited

I had the pleasure of attending a workshop, Cybercrime- what can go wrong? as part of the #LBF (Leicester Business Festival) . I found the course to be relaxed yet informative, with Trevor’s warm and friendly style, I was able to participate without any inhibition. His knowledge has proved valuable, allowing a proactive and productive implementation of new processes in the work place.

Sandra Whiles – ICF Professional Certified Coach

I’ve had a few fairly major IT challenges this week. Made me really miss the ICT support that I used to take for granted when I worked in an organisation. This made me realise the wisdom of my decision, not long after I started my business, of investing in a daily automatic file back up service with Trevor Wood at Network Midlands. Trevor has been a real star in guiding me through the process of safely getting all my files back onto my Macbook. If you are looking for help around file back up and PC security issues, Trevor is well work chatting to. He talks like a normal person, not an IT alien!

Robin Eyre, Trailblazer360 Marketing

Trevor organises useful monthly events at Network Midlands offering different formats at different venues each time. For anyone wanting to network outside their industry and build business I can recommend them.

As a small business it’s really important that I have secure back up for my documents. I’ve been working with Trevor at Network Midlands for a couple of years now using his cloud back up service. Trevor is really helpful at advising on technical issues – recently moved from a desktop pc to a Mac laptop- and Trevor talked me through the necessary changes Great service, good value, peace of mind.

Sandra Whiles

Beverley Hooper, Core Purpose

Network Midlands was my first networking experience and Trevor was the first person I met. He was very welcoming and helped me feel comfortable in the group by introducing me to a couple of people. I have since met Trevor several times and found him to be charming and entertaining company.

Sue Grogan, Joined Up Working Leicestershire

Trevor developed a database for the LeicesterShire Learning Networks. This was a complex piece of work around Adult Learning provision but Trevor had a good understanding of what was required, developed a database that was easy to administrate, that did what it was supposed to do and a bit more. He was on time, value for money we were very impressed and pleased with the result!

Debbie Reynolds, The Business Club

Since completing our website for us, Trevor has continued to be very supportive and very helpful, supporting us as we’ve come across additional changes and requirements. He always succeeds in finding a solution to our queries, not only making them on our behalf, but also teaching us how to do certain things, giving us the element of control we need.

Trevor is always responsive, patient and being naturally inquisitive, has never failed to find an answer – which is great for us! All in all we’d thoroughly recommend Trevor for your website requirements

Debbie Reynolds

Sheena Adam, Children First Family Mediation

We are a medium sized charity who wanted secure off site back up which would work in an easy and cost effective way as we have no real technical experts on site.

Clunk Click (now called Redstore Backup Pro) fits the bill very well. It was easy to install; we can choose and change which folders etc we want included in the backup and it is set to take place automatically each day.

Trevor was very helpful with the setup and more recently when we moved offices and had some teething problems linked to a slightly different IT setup.

The support, simplicity and low cost make this an ideal solution for our service where secure data is essential

Sheena Adam

Chris Jenkinson, Jenkinson & Associates Ltd

Trevor’s company Network Midlands arranges the best informal networking meetings in the Leicestershire / Rugby areas. I attend them regularly and have always found the mix of businesses to be an excellent source of contacts to provide me with business services as well as meeting new clients.

Chris Jenkinson

Richard Lynch, 4C Software

The Mastermind networking events that Trevor runs under the Network Midlands brand have been very different to others that I have attended. The opportunities are there for introductions, general networking and ad-hoc conversation, but Trevor also provides proper organised opportunities to share in the real business problems facing the individuals that come to the meeting. These are often people from very different industries, backgrounds and experiences who come with their own problems, but also a willingness to help others. Consequently, we have insightful discussions, with lots of ideas and suggested solutions being shared by everyone, which creates a real buzz and a sense of involvement. If you have a business issue and would welcome some unbiased brainstorming, I would highly recommend these events

Richard Lynch

Steven McCallister, Salusburys Harding & Barlow

Trevor produced my firm’s new website and from the start of the process understood clearly what we were hoping to achieve. The end result fully met our expectations, was produced on time and was good value for money. Subsequent requests for follow up support have been met by an excellent response.

Steven McCallister

Kishani Navin, K4 Law

I am writing to place on record my thanks to Network Midlands Ltd for the development and design of my company’s brand new website.  It is a bold and “to the point” site, and we have been complimented by many clients and professional connections. We have secured new clients who tell us that our website was instrumental in making enquiries with us.

Trevor totally understood what we were looking to achieve, and delivered within budget, took care of all follow-up and maintenance, and continues to advise us on relevant updates.

We have no hesitation in recommending the services of Network Midlands Ltd.

Paul Sherwin, BCM Business Cost Management

Trevor provided excellent service and advice within the Social Media domain providing clarity of thought and process for which I am extremely grateful. I would be happy to recommend Trevor

Paul Sherwin

Sarah Bladon, exec:secs

As part of my office management services, I strongly recommend to my clients that they regularly back up their system, however unfortunately I haven’t been practising what I’ve been preaching!

I found that I wasn’t backing up as often as I should because it was such a time consuming process, and I’m sure that many people can identify with that. With Clunk Click (now called Redstore Backup Pro) it takes all the hassle away because it’s automated, so I can carry on with my work while it whirrs away in the background, and I’m now safe in the knowledge that all my documents are stored elsewhere in case of emergencies.

Sarah Bladon

Emma Swales, Marketing ESP

I have worked with Trevor on several shared projects for his various companies and have always found him to be knowledgeable and thorough, delivering to a high standard and on time. His networking events are extremely popular and I have acquired business as a direct result. I would have no hesitation in recommending Trevor and his company to anyone looking to build their business through networking and referrals.

Julie Jordan-Spence – FSB

Trevor is concise, professional and extremely knowledgeable in all of his subjects. He recently gave a very interesting and thought provoking talk to the Federation of Small Business Virtual Networking group that I host here in Leicester, on the subject of Cyber crime. It stimulated many questions and much discussion, all of which made for a very positive meeting.

Stephen Hughes, Hunt and Gather

I contacted Trevor with details from a friend and with in minutes we were talking about problem solving and cash-flow cutting. Trevor’s attention and ideas were so valuable.

Trevor made every inch so easy to follow, making hours turn into minutes and saving me hundreds almost thousands of pounds for my business.

Trevor made it look so easy, and setting up e-commerce on the business website and mirroring it on Facebook left me and my friends delighted!

I know I will be using Trevor and his time, again and again!

Edward Cartwright – De Montfort University

Fantastic working with Trevor to set up a website and database for the East Midlands Economic Data Repository housed at De Montfort University. Five star service throughout the project with great support, guidance and technical expertise.

Edward Cartwright

Sue Jerham, National Forest E-Bike Holidays

After a good chat on the phone, we decided that creating an enquiry and booking form would be a great option, as this was something that I had struggled with and it would make web navigation easier.

The process was excellent and a real help to me. I sent Trevor a brief and he then created a booking page and added a form to the enquiry page, which I’m thrilled with. I was also able to benefit from his experience, as he shared some really helpful suggestions and tips along the way.

In short, I’m a delighted customer and very thankful to Trevor. I now have a more efficient website, ready for when we’re able to start thinking about (post Covid-19) holidays again. I also now have a starting point to enable me to create additional forms in the future.

Sue Jerham

Julie Langton, True Potential

I would just like to say a big thank you for helping me with the back up service we set up through Network Midlands. My Mac book pro was going very slow over a period of time, and then decided to freeze altogether.

I took it the Apple Store and they did ran some diagnostics, and when I asked what was wrong they said “its complicated”! They then asked if I had a backup service as a cable would have to be replaced and it would then be set back to the factory settings.

I met Trevor through Business Networking in Leicester and listening to his presentations around backing up our computers. He also explained the dire consequences of not doing so if the computer crashed.

I found Trevor really helpful when I had a problem and he took me through the process of getting all of my important data back onto my computer.

Thank you Trevor, I am really relieved that I took your advice and have your Back Up service. Its good to know that in the future if I experience further problems they will easily resolved.

Julie Langton

Adrian Holdstock, Galilee Coaching and Mentoring

Trevor has identified a winning formula for providing business networking opportunities and always makes me feel he is working in my very best interests when he organises venues and encourages others to attend. The events themselves are facilitated in such a way as to make delegates feel welcome and at ease so they are more likely to build relationships and gain business through positive attitudes.

Adrian Holdstock

Sue Grogan, Joined-Up Working

Trevor hosts all my important information on a cloud storagesystem for me. If there’s a problem, which there was at my end acouple of months ago, the system flags this up and then I get a callfrom Trevor. He sorted it out very quickly which was a relief for me! His knowledge of cybersecurity is amazing too, if a little scary………..

Sue Grogan

Lloyd Richards, LMI

Massive thank you to Trevor for arranging this morning. I must say it was really enjoyable and my first “speed networking” event since 2005!!!!

Lloyd Richards

Karen Chambers, KC Coaching

Having Network Midland’s Clunk Click (now called Redstore Backup Pro) service for the past few months has been great. Once it’s set up, it automatically backs up the data on my laptop every day so I don’t have to think or worry about it. You don’t even know it’s there as it all happens in the background. Best of all it gives me peace of mind, as losing some of my data could mean losing some of my business. Now that I’ve got it I wouldn’t be without it.”

Just wanted to say a big thank you for today’s event.

I’ve never been speed-networking before and it certainly is effective. A couple of good leads and potential referrers.

Rob Howell, Howell & Co (Leicester) Ltd

Howell & Co needed a new website that was not only professional, but also attractive and modern. Network Midlands helped us develop the creative design and then produced a website that has already received very positive comments The whole process was very quick and easy and good value for money.

I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to give their existing website a “facelift”

Rob Howell

Peter Dewsbery, Procyon Fire & Security Ltd

John Logan, Recognition Express Leicestershire

Being the sole proprietor of a new business involves a lot of planning at all times, but even being organised I knew I needed an a data backup facility requiring minimum effort.

Trevor set up the Clunk Click (now called Redstore Backup Pro) system on my laptop which backs up my activity daily to an external storage site. I don’t have to remember to do this, and I can tailor which files I want backed up to ensure I stay within my storage limit. I’m alerted to any problems, and Trevor reminds me if I need to housekeep once the limit is reached, plus I can see at a glance if the backup has worked & that the files are retrievable. In short – I can sleep at night!

John Logan

Avtar Singh, Oadby PC Repairs Ltd

I’ve been to 2 of Trevor’s seminars/lectures recently and both werebrilliant; engaging, informative and highly worthwhile, I woulddefinitely recommend them to anyone wanting to learn more about Cybersecurity.

Paul Sherwin, BCM Business Cost Management

Trevor has provided a cost effective web design solution avoiding the need for expensive monthly bills. The solution has been executed on time and issues that arose with individual elements of the system were dealt with effectively and efficiently by Trevor and as a result I would highly recommend Trevor to any business

Paul Sherwin

Brian Gale, Crowhurst Gale

I am writing to say how pleased I am with the installation of the Clunk Click (now called Redstore Backup Pro) software that you have provided for our business. The integrity of data back-up has been a cause of major concern of mine over the last 12 months as our business has expanded and the knowledge that our vital data is being backed-up securely offsite on a daily basis has taken a large degree of worry away from me.

The installation was very straight forward and the monthly costs are reasonable and I would certainly recommend this product to any business that is reliant upon the safe keeping and retention of electronic data.

Joanne Withers, Joanne Withers Photography

If you are looking for networking opportunities or advise on social media, then Trevor is very personable.

Sue Williams, Select Marketing

Having been one of the unlucky ones that suffered a complete computer crash loosing everything on my hard drives, I decided to look into having my computer backed up remotely.

Trevor Wood, of Network Midlands, suggested Clunk Click (now called Redstore Backup Pro) and I now have peace of mind that never again will I loose all my documentation, presentations and images. I would highly recommend Clunk Click, its easy to use, backs up every evening and is an inexpensive way of safeguarding my work.
