Since 1989, Vivien (Viv) East has worked as a consultant with businesses of all sizes, from small enterprises to national and international corporations, as well as the public sector. Her unique
skill mix allows her to quickly understand and evaluate your business, considering both the strategic view and everyday business needs, as well as your people.
Viv came into IT in the early years of word processing and spreadsheets, working for the Xerox Corporation, training and supporting clients to get the best out of their investment in IT. She became the Training Manager for a major computer dealer in Hampshire both writing and delivering
Microsoft Office courses, whilst also supporting clients. She soon realised that her value was also in her ability to not only provide solutions to problems, but also to look strategically at the initial planning and setup. Being a good communicator is a prime consideration, and whilst working at B&Q's Head Office in Eastleigh she worked closely with the Internal Communications Manager while setting up a bespoke procedures documentation system for the stores. Following this she attended a Bournemouth University post graduation course in Internal Communications Management.
These three areas of the effective use of office software programs; the improvement of communication; and the documentation of company processes and procedures now form her offer to you to help you to improve these areas in your business.
Vivid Connections also partners with other consultants with complimentary skill sets - equally widely experienced, and each qualified in their own area of expertise.
We are based in the New Forest, Hampshire, just outside Lymington, and most of our clients are in Hampshire, East Dorset, and occasionally London.
We will work with you to help you meet your business needs - on an ad hoc or retainer basis.
