Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Technically Simple unique?

Where is Technically Simple based?
Technically Simple is based in beautiful Vancouver, Canada. We provide our services to clients all over the world both in person and through the Internet.
Do you provide consulting and training services outside of Vancouver?
Yes. We provide coaching, consulting and training services both in-person and remotely using the Zoom online meeting platform, that supports audio/video conferencing and screen sharing. Additional charges to cover travel expenses may apply to in-person coaching, consulting and training services provided outside of Vancouver.
What’s the difference between coaching and consulting?
A consultant is an expert in a given field that provides advice based on their own training, knowledge, and experience. Coaching sees you, the client as creative, intelligent and resourceful. It draws upon the belief that the greatest expert on your life and your business is YOU and that all the answers you seek are within you, waiting to be discovered. We see the power of both coaching and consulting and typically provide our clients with a mixture of coaching and consulting services. You get the benefits of our experience while also having the opportunity to tap into your own potential.
How much do you charge for your services?
Our rate for consulting and training services is $150/hour. We charge in US dollars when working with American and international clients and in Canadian dollars when working with Canadian clients. Additional taxes apply for clients based in Canada and for onsite courses and consulting work that takes place in Canada. Consulting and training services are provided both in person and remotely using the Internet. Additional fees may apply for travel outside of Vancouver.
Do you provide training for both Mac and Windows platforms?
