The Keys that open the doors to knowledge
Alex Waterton is passionate about helping people to do things the easy way, which is why he started a business revealing the secrets of the applications that people use every day.
“There are easier ways to do many things in Word, in Excel, in PowerPoint – and most people are just not aware of what’s possible,” he says.
F-Keys launched back in 1998 and became a limited company in March 2000 and the current team includes Carol Downey, who started out as one of Alex’s students and worked her way up to become a Microsoft Office Specialist Instructor, like Alex.
Also on the team is Jo White, who was Alex’s tutor and mentor at Mid-Kent College when he studied for his JEB teaching qualification before continuing on to complete his Certificate in Education.
Having developed a training suite that allows students to work in comfortable (rather than cramped) conditions, Alex and the team at F-Keys are flexible about designing the ideal learning solutions for people and businesses.
“At F-Keys first we try understand what a business wants to achieve and then the courses are built around the learners. The focus is on how to make the most of the features and functionality within Microsoft Office so that the processes and people are ultimately more efficient and productive.”
One of the most important aspects of the F-Keys training is to encourage people to become more confident in their use of these programs, so that they begin to find their and solve their own solutions rather than disturbing fellow staff members or simply following the manual blindly.
