Our aim is to empower through education
The world is changing and technology is evolving rapidly. We have a population that is pushed or pulled into a digital realm
At ReadyTechGo, we believe in inspiring curiosity and the desire to explore what technology has to offer. We believe that digital skills will help people remain connected to loved ones, access essential digital services, and remain independent.
ReadyTechGo’s services help people keep connected in a digital world. Through our technology lessons and group workshops, many adults have newfound confidence and skills, enabling them to remain independent and in contact with loved ones.
How ReadyTechGo began
Brad and Lisa were colleagues within the technology industry. Over a coffee, they got talking about their parents and their frustration with how fast technology seemed to be moving for them these days.
During Brad’s weekly visits to his parents house, he would have one foot in the door, and would be promptly handed the list of tech tasks to “sort out”. He didn’t mind because he was always rewarded with his Mum’s excellent cooking. Lisa’s story wasn’t too different. Her parents preferred the bank teller representative over the Automatic Teller Machine, and she had recently purchased her Mum a smartphone (which her Mum can’t let go of).
Brad and Lisa realised that many other parents and grandparents must experience the same technology frustrations! So they recruited a team of tech savvy trainers and ReadyTechGo was born – A technology training service to help everyone with their technology problems!

"My Go-Pro camera. I love attaching it to my mountain bike and going for a ride through the bushes. It also captures great footage when I go snowboarding" Brad Donnini, Co-Founder
Lisa grew up during a time where "Tiggy", Cabbage Patch dolls and Yo-Yos were still popular, but things were quickly moving towards computers and the internet. Lisa holds a Bachelors degree in Management and HR and enjoys old school video games, good food and seeing her friends. Before ReadyTechGo, she has spent a fair amount of time on dusty mine sites implementing technology for mining companies. She still holds on to her Hi-Vis vest and steel cap boots (just in case!) She plays beach volleyball, indoor soccer, and also completed the Tough Mudder course in Summer 2013.
