About Us

  "US" is Chris Hopkins. I formed "your-own-page" in 2002 to provide cost effective Web Design and Hosting specifically for small businesses, sole traders,  organisations and charities, concentrating on people who would like a web presence but don't have the skills to do it themselves.

I did a degree in Engineering Science at Exeter University followed by research in Computer Control.

  I then spent 28 years in the telecommunications industry working for one of the leading UK telecomms equipment manufacturers. I have experience in Hardware Design, System Design, International Standards, Electronic Publishing, Marketing, Web Specification and Web Design.
 


More recently I have completed a Further Adult Education Teaching Certificate and have taught IT courses at Poole and Bournemouth College and for Poole Adult Learning. I also have the EDCL qualification. I provide One-to-One training courses for businesses.

During my five years experience of working within the Web Specification, Design and Management team we became aware of what constitutes good and bad web design, having to maintain the standards we set. For my summary click here.
