About Rob Davies
My background comes from two main career focuses
- The Development of Software.
- Making information technology people-friendly.
I ended with a skill set that meant I both understood how to write computer systems the people that used them. As you might expect that led me to become an IT tutor.
I realised that the skill that supported my training capability was technology development. It became critical to my development that I never stopped understanding the technology.
It’s this that led to Kashiko. A place where I can engage with business as a technical advisor and developer. This keeps my skill set fresh and up to date. So that when I am acting as a tutor my advice is always the current best practice.
I work from Cwmbran in South Wales. It is close to both Bristol and Cardiff. It leaves me well placed to serve the West of England and South East Wales.
Additionally, I am on the M4 corridor and have excellent rail links to the rest of the UK
I can operate as a local business or travel nationally.
What is Kashiko?
Kashiko is a trading name that I have used for some time. Starting the 1990’s working as an IT subcontractor and needed a name for my contrating work.
When I decided to become a full time IT freelancer I revived Kashiko. This helped retain consistency.
As a name it is short and very distinctive. Once heard never forgotten.
If you’re looking for an origin then look up Kashiko Kawakita. The Japanese film producer and curator.
I currently deliver both training courses and consultancy remotely. My aim in this is the protection of all clients by preventing cross infection
