Picked up so many clever and useful tips


Glynnis S – Little Mountain – 18th Sep

Really looked forward to each lesson that was delivered with clear and simple language. I had a basic knowledge of the iPad but picked up so many clever and useful tips. I learnt heaps!

Thank you Colin for a structured course which I would recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing an iPad.

My biggest issue with the iPad before the iPad course was that I knew nothing about one. Just a few weeks ago I would never have believed I could use an iPad. I attended a group course with iPad Lessons and found gained an insight into how the iPad works.

The course started at the absolute beginners level with all points explained and shown until all on the course understood and practiced it.

I had never used the internet and my only communication with others was by texting or voicemail. Little did I know about FaceTime or sending emails. I now send messages and emails, of course I still make mistakes but with what I learnt on the course and being able to contact Colin from iPad Lessons I can generally work my way through them quickly.

I thank Colin for his time and patience with me, a complete novice. I am looking forward to using my iPad more and more and with the knowledge gained on the course I have now taken another step and bought an iPhone with the iPad training sessions having given me a head start over the instructions I received when I purchased the phone.

Thank you Colin for a structured course which I would recommend to anyone thinking of purchasing an iPad.

Kindest regards and thanks

Seniors Forum Sunshine Coast

I have been asked to participate in a Seniors Forum on the Sunshine Coast to help communicate the issues facing Seniors when dealing with technology and technology companies.

I would be grateful for your feedback on issues you have faced with buying technology products, updating or upgrading, learning about technology, dealing with your telecommunications company, security, scams, passwords etc

Or any other issue you would like me to raise or to help change.

Please leave your comments below and I will use them to make sure we focus on the most important issues you face when dealing with technology.

Please keep your comments on topic about issues facing seniors. Save questions about iPad questions for one of my Ask The iPad Man shows.

Ask The iPad Man – LIVE #104

Ask The iPad Man LIVE - Episode #104

I will answer the number 1 question asked this week…. Is my Google account being shut down?

I will explain the email that every Gmail or Google account holder has received.

PLUS: Apple Pay comes to Commonwealth Bank and BankWest (but with some limitations!)

AND I will do my best to answer any other questions you may have.

The only silly question is the one you don’t ask!

The Gift of Sound

I hope you have had time to keep up to date with the FREE iPad tips I'm sending each week. I'd love to hear about the progress you are making!

I don't do this often and I'm a little uncomfortable asking for your assistance when I genuinely value the support you give my business but I have a really big favour to ask of you.

Each year I work with my great friend and mentor, Barry Bull (The Music Man - Toombul Music), to help raise money for Hear & Say with a special concert called "the Gift of Sound".

The morning concert, to be held at 10:30am on Friday 31st August will be one and a half hours of great music and inspirational stories shared by "The Music Man" - Barry Bull & "The iPad Man" - Colin Dunkerley.

Tickets are $29 which includes lunch to be served at 12:30pm. The Moolooolaba Bowls Club have generously supplied the room for free and discounted lunch to $10 meaning we are able to pass on a full $19 per ticket to Hear & Say. (The iPad Man is covering all fees and charges).

Hear & Say is a wonderful organisation that helps children who have severe hearing impairments to make sure they don't miss out on the incredible technology that exists today to help them listen & speak.

Barry has become Queensland's ambassador for Hear & Say because his grandson Archie was born profoundly deaf. After seeing the wonderful work done by Hear & Say for his own family Barry has made it his mission to help other children by doing an annual fundraiser for Hear & Say.

These funds don't go to Archie but to other families who are in need of Hear & Say's assistance.

So come and join us at "The Gift of Sound" concert - to be held at Mooloolaba Bowls Club at 10:30am on Friday 31st August... (that's Friday week!!)

Please book your ticket/s below or if you would like to book an entire table of 8 call Tianne on 1300121259 to make the process of booking easier for you.


Cant' Make the Concert?

We know that life can be incredibly busy. If you already have an appointment this day but would like to contribute anyway please make a donation.

Thank you so much for your support!


Help Kids Like Archie

It has been incredible to see the progress of this young man because of the life changing Cochlear implant that has allowed Archie to listen and speak.

At last years concert he even came on stage and started to sing as well as played the guitar!

None of this would have been possible without the Support of Hear & Say.

Once again we thank you for any support you are able to give.
