Michael is a qualified accountant and holds a Master of Commerce degree and was a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand for more than 40 years. He was managing partner of a small public practice for 25 years and is now semi-retired. Michael explains that status as intending to be retired but continuing to be talked into one more little task to help out.
Like many of our members, Michael’s first introduction to computers was at university where the machines were kept in hermetically sealed enclosures with white coated acolytes feeding punch cards into the intake slot. Needless to say, those days are missed by few. Michael has lived on Sydney’s Northern Beaches for over 40 years and is married to a local and has 2 grown children.
Media Co-ordinator / Be Connected Lead Digital Mentor
Natika lives on Mirriwung Country (East Kimberley) in the far north of Western Australia and had been involved in the West Australian Community Resource Network for some 17 years in varying roles and communities.
In 2017 the Kununurra Community Resource Centre made the decision to cease operations in the town after 25 years supporting social and community development and the digital aspirations of many, many community members. A self-confessed tech head, who loves to share her knowledge about all things digital and social, Tik has been supporting many micro and small businesses and individuals for years as they land on her doorstep.
Upon the cessation of the Kununurra CRC Tik started her own business supporting micro and small business in engaging with their technology to ensure the best return on investments of capital and time, she still troubleshoots tech challenges for people on a regular basis, and spends a large part of her working week working for ASCCA in the Be Connected Project and Marketing the organisation.
