Becoming Your Own Computer Expert

Speaker: Philip Bock
President, Lake Area Computer Enthusiasts, Illinois

Everyone who uses a personal computer, tablet or smart phone has technical problems. Where should you turn? After talking with his club’s members and attendees at local tech seminars, he realized that a monthly presentation at club meetings would not transform newcomers to our brave new technology world into confident, knowledgeable participants. So, he developed a program to help people improve their tech knowledge and comfort level, especially learning where to look for help if they run into a problem. This program is based on the structured approach to process development and problem-solving that he learned at Xerox Corporation.

Meet Our Presenter

After seven years of active duty in the United States Marine Corps, Phil Bock began a 33-year career in the logistics division of Xerox Corporation. Phil first became interested in computers when he bought his son an Apple II computer in 1978, and later he bought one for himself. He switched to the Windows platform in the 1990’s when Xerox gave employees Compaq laptops. He bought his first home PC in 1997, running Windows 95. He went on to using Windows XP, Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 – upgrading hardware along the way. He joined a local Illinois computer club six years ago and was elected its president three years ago.
