Local IT company empowers business owners to take ownership of their technology

Myrtec hosts Techshops, which are educational luncheons geared towards the Hunter’s professional services community. The company are about to hold their final one for the year.

They combine lunch, networking and short presentations to give local business owners the tools and education they need to make informed decisions surrounding their technology stack.

November’s Techshop will outline the tech tips for closing your business over the holidays and preparing for a seamless reopening in January.

Business Development Manager, Rob Dawson said that the Myrtec team started hosting educational luncheons because they are on a mission to empower their customers and the wider business community in the Newcastle area.

“Too often when we acquire a new customer, they have a mess of technology that isn’t scalable, valuable or rationalised. This makes IT systems clunky, hard to use, and not very secure,” Rob said.

“For most people, technology, specifically IT talk, is almost like a second language so people just buy the solutions that they are told they need.

“Techshops are a safe space for us to break technical concepts and products down, share knowledge and for others to ask questions.”

Director at Newcastle Insurance Group, Phil Bamback praised Myrtec’s last Techshop.

“Rob’s presentation featured a wealth of information that simplified various technical concepts, which gave me all of the information I needed to make informed decisions with confidence,” Phil said.

Marketing and Communication Coordinator, Skye Harvey said that Myrtec’s Techshops align with the evolution of the Myrtec brand and their values.

“Our mission statement – empowering businesses to save money, take ownership and gain visibility – isn’t just something we say. These Techshops demonstrate how we always aim to deliver. It’s great to have already received feedback that aligns with this mission,” Skye said.
