  1. Stuart is a relaxed & charming person for whom nothing is too much trouble. He provided me with outstanding service & I would strongly recommend him for sorting out computer issues etc.

  2. Stuart is the epitome of straightforward, non-fluff talking and finding solutions to aid my computer and allied tech function far better and with more understanding. I unhesitatingly recommend Stuart, by the far the best tech help ever received for my memoir-writing business, Your Story, Your Life, and personal tech needs. Prompt too. Nab him while you can for his undoubted expertise and kindness!

  3. Thank you Stuart for willingly taking on what must have seemed a small “challenge” for you but what was a big problem for us. You certainly helped to put us on the right pathway. Your quick response and good Customer Service is highly recommended.

  4. Thank you Stuart for all your support and help recently. I’ve now got an old laptop with a new lease of life! It’s a pleasure to work on it and the behind the scenes audit and corrections you put in place have really speeded it up. And no more Script Error messages! So helpful to have it all explained too in plain language as we went through the Apps and folders.
    I’ve passed on you details to my partner who I’m sure will be in touch.
    Thanks again
    Karen

  5. Just a big thanks to Sussex Smarts for coming out so promptly and pointing me in the right direction to improve the speed of my Mac that had become bloated with files that should have been deleted many years ago!

  6. Thank you so much for helping me set up my iPad Stuart. You were very patient and explained the various stages very clearly. I look forward to regular Zooming in the coming months. I have your contact number on my pinboard and no doubt will be calling on your services again – but not too frequently I hope!

  7. Your visit today was exactly what we had hoped. A friendly combination of explanation and advice, pitched at a level we could understand and reassuringly not too technical. We were left in much better control of our two iPads, with a better understanding of how to modify the settings as appropriate. Many thanks for your excellent help!

  8. Since Stuart’s workshops, I have started a new volunteering job. I am now confident using a computer, (as opposed to a laptop or iPad,) with some confidence, knowing that I can’t break it. I’m sure that before the workshops I would have walked away after my first morning, feeling totally overwhelmed by that huge screen, with so many icons and incomprehensible pieces of information. However, I am now spending a very happy morning, helping a good cause, and my husband has back some ‘me time’. Thanks Stuart

  9. A belated thank you Stuart for all the help you gave me on the 5th. I am back on track more now and would definitely seek your help when another problem arises. Your expertise and knowledge are a great help to have close at hand. Many thanks, Chris P.

  10. I have just completed the workshop that Stuart has ran over the last few weeks. They were very enjoyable and informative. The sessions were interactive as they were held on zoom. This gave us the opportunity to ask any questions if not sure about any subject. Any question was listened too and explained at a level that we could all understand.
    Stuart made everyone feel confident enough to participate in any discussion’s that we had during the workshops. Another benefit of these workshops, is if you can’t make one of them, they are kept on recordings on Sussex Smart, to watch at any time, or watch again,which I have been doing, because there is so much information to take in, in one go!!
    Stuart is also very welling to help were needed on any personal,technical problems.
    Thank you very much.

  11. If you are considering improving your technological ability, I can thoroughly recommend Stuart Pembery to you

    I have found him very polite and patient. He is quietly spoken, and through demonstrations and clear explanations makes sure one understands what he is saying and doing. In group sessions, he is remarkably good and methodical with a number of people.

    He is not bigheaded, and although he is extremely well qualified, he is always prepared to research the inevitable problems encountered.

  12. My computer was running slowly & I had accumulated a number of related problems which I did not have the expertise to resolve. Stuart Pembery, of Sussex Smarts, swiftly ran through a diagnostic procedure, explaining his actions throughout. He outlined various solutions &, when I decided on those I preferred, he proceeded to act on them for me. I am most grateful. He has wide experience which enabled him to give balanced advice &, on 2 occasions, suggested simple solutions where I had thought I might need to up-grade & spend money. He was courteous, pitched his explanations at a level I could understand & had the sensitivity to understand my particular needs. I am delighted to recommend his work.

  13. I just want to say a big thank you to Sussex Smarts for helping me with my laptop. There was a problem with it which I couldn’t fix and I was going to have to send it off for repair which can take up to 60 days. I had work due in and needed my laptop so contacted Sussex Smarts to see if they could help. After about 20 minutes my laptop was up and running again. Thank you so much! 🙂
