Alex Metcalfe, Nörtti paikalle, For home, tidy desk

Now that hybrid working has become a norm for many families, our home offices maybe start to look and more business like, with printers and usb-sticks covering our desks.

I am a bit of neat-freak, and I’d love to come and brainstorm with you, about how your home-office can truly support your home-work balance.

Let’s imagine together a home office which works for you. Let’s make the best use of modern technology so that your printing and file storage works so seamlessly, that you almost forgot the devices are even there.

I’m a parent too, and although my children are now adults, I remember the hard work it was keep track of their online habits.

The good news is that the vast majority of the modems we use for connecting our homes to the internet have great features to help manage our children’s internet usage. This helps to create a distraction free time where homework can be done, and also to prevent unwanted content reaching their minds.

If you would advice on setting up these features, please feel free to get in touch.

Alex Metcalfe. Meet Nörtti kotiin

Nörtti paikalle is Finnish for “A nerd for/to the place”. When working in your home, all I need is clean, flat surface to work from. This can be your kitchen table, or counter, desk, breakfast bar, floor, etc. In a pinch, even the sauna bench works!

I bring all my tools with with me. If you are interested in what I am doing, I am more than happy to share my knowledge with you.
