Who is Stuart?

Stuart is the owner and main trainer behind Burningsuit Ltd; he is a member of the Learning and Performance Institute and a Microsoft Certified Professional.

Training specialisms

He delivers training for Burningsuit specialising in Microsoft Power BI Service, SharePoint and Office 365, but can train on most Microsoft applications and a number of esoteric subjects such as Ubuntu Linux and Python Programming.

Career background

Stuart began working in Information Technology when computers were bigger than your living room but had less power than your mobile phone. He has progressed through most of the jobs you can do in IT, from Operator to Programmer, Systems Analyst, Manager and Technical Director. He managed a group of 50 programmers at the American computing giant Unisys but left to save his home county of Sussex from the ravages of the year 2000 bug.

He started Burningsuit in August 2000 to provide help for organisations who wanted to make the best use of IT in their business. His combination of both practical business and technology skills has meant Burningsuit are a leading training provider for bespoke IT courses.

As one of his clients was kind enough to put it:- “The combination of understanding both of business and how IT relates to business is rare; having both, and using it to client advantage, is worth loads.”
