We’ve been proudly sharing digital skills in our little corner of East Sussex since 2013

Our directors

Our leadership team

These are our people who lead the planning and delivery of our work – that you’ll most likely see at our HQ or on the road.

Sean Firth
Sean is our Ops Co-ordinator. He helps plan, deliver, and monitor our day-to-day work – including our drop-in sessions, consultancy work, and sessions for young people. Affectionately known as the ‘Organiser of Things’, he also works on funding applications.

Fiona Davison-Trickett
Fiona is our Delivery Co-ordinator. She runs most of our digital drop-in sessions, as well as our after-school sessions for young people. She is very patient even with the most troublesome technology, and currently leads the delivery of our device repurposing scheme!

Jim Beaumont
Jim is our Digital Inclusion Co-ordinator. He runs our digital drop-in sessions at Age Concern and throughout East Sussex, and reaches out to community groups to offer our digital support.

Chris Moth
Chris is our Infrastructure Co-ordinator. He ensures all of our devices, network equipment, and web hosting all runs smoothly – and loves to tinker with new bits of kit! He also runs some of our digital drop-in sessions and advises on the process for our device repurposing scheme.

Our associates

These great people across the UK share our mission to share digital skills with everyone. We cheer on each others’ work and often team up for bigger projects

Adam McNaught-Davis
Adam is a design and storytelling supremo, based in Eastbourne and working for clients all over the world. He makes us look great, and helps us share our stories in a compelling and effective way.

Theo Pilbeam
Theo was TechResort’s first student and inspiration for our work. He graduated from Warwick University and is now making tracks in the software industry
