Technology can be simple enough for a grandmother to use.
I know because I’m a great-grandmother!

Turning the Technical Into the Understandable – click here to see the services I provide

Hi, I’m Carol Bremner, an online media specialist, Internet trainer and consultant who has been working with groups and individuals since 2001. I was a technophobe but I found my way out. Now my goal is to teach technical concepts in a non-technical way and help people to share their stories online. My passion for computer literacy and interest in all things related to marketing on the Internet have led to many opportunities.

These are some of the things I’ve achieved:

  • In 2017, after two years of feeling intimidated at the thought, I launched my weekly podcast, Purpose For Your Life, on iTunes.
  • As a Udemy instructor, I have a number of my courses online so that they can be consumed at your own speed. So far I have nine courses and almost 11,,000 students from many countries all over the world.
  • I was an Internet trainer with the Johnson Community Centre in Cambridge for five years. I taught courses in Social Media, Blogging, Starting an Internet Home Business, Publishing Online, Creating Information Products, and Affiliate Marketing. I’ve since left that position to concentrate on more online courses.
  • As a volunteer at a nearby women’s prison, I taught the concepts of social media to a group of women who had no idea what it even was. We had no Internet, so I taught them using role playing, pens and paper.
  • In April 2011, I kicked off the Vibrant Living Series with a social media presentation entitled “Are You a Sally Social Butterfly or a Wanda Worker Bee?”
  • In February 2011,  I was asked for a second time to speak about Internet business to a group at the Working Centre in Kitchener.
  • In late 2010, co-presented a workshop on Search Engine Optimization with Jeremy Stuzka at the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce.
  • As a volunteer,  I started a computer club at the local community centre soon after re-locating to Cambridge. I have also helped with a number of computer classes at the Literacy Group, after becoming certified as a Laubach Literacy Tutor.
  • In May 2008, I appeared as part of a three woman tech panel on a local Rogers TV station, as the blogging expert.
  • In early 2008, my eBay workshops at the Momiji Centre in Toronto were mentioned by a local paper when one of the students started to do very well  selling on eBay. My workshops have been in demand ever since.
  • In 2007, I volunteered to start a computer club at a community centre in Toronto that continues until today. When it began, there weren’t even computers on site – a few members brought laptops and everyone crowded around them.
  • In 2001, I left my position as a University library technician and opened a computer cafe in Scarborough. Within a year, I changed direction and began teaching computers to individuals and small groups on location.
