2023 Update

After 23+ years of working as ICT Services Manager in Carinity\Qld Baptists, that season came to a close. From mid 2023 my focus returned to building “Straight Talk Technology Services” around my home, Bribie Island.

The next phase of this journey is to rise to the challenge of building Straight Talk Technology Services and continuing faith based charity work with my wife Karen. Together we look forward to new challenges and new opportunities, to build lives that hopefully make a difference. My hope is to remember and live by three words shared with me many years ago by a mentor, “People Matter Most”.


Over the past decade, Rick Saul has helped me establish websites for 3 community organisations on Bribie Island, namely, the Bribie Island Mahalo Outrigger Club Inc, the Bribie Island Boating Club Inc and more recently Bribie Aquatic Community Events Inc (BACE). Rick has given sterling assistance to myself even though he held a full and busy workload in his own workplace in the city. His response time to any query was impressive. He always quickly provided workable solutions to the numerous problems I caused, while I tried to maintain these internet sites as a complete novice. Rick is diligent, skillful and patient. He also is a very nice person to know. I can recommend him without hesitation as a reliable and decent person.

Rick has been looking after my IT requirements for the past 20 yrs. As I have basic IT knowledge, Rick clearly explains what the problem is and how to resolve it within my level of understanding. He takes the time to listen to what I’m needing and offers suggestions and solutions to meet my requirements. Rick has provided advice on purchasing new computers and then completed the set up as required. He is very efficient, professional and responds promptly to queries. I’d be lost without him!

Rick is very professional and very knowledgeable in his field of anything IT. I was having issues with my computer and phone continually going through data. I was under the belief that my phone had more data then my computer but that wasn’t the case. After Rick looked into my issue it was found that my telephone provider had my data usages mixed up. When Rick suggested I swap telephone providers and instead of using a dongle provided by my provider I should use a portable WiFi dongle remote from my computer. My bill went from $70 to half of that with more data. I’m using my data in the same way as I was before but now my WiFi isn’t cutting in and out. I’m very happy now too that my bill isn’t as expensive. Thanks for your help Rick, I’m one very happy and satisfied customer.

Rick Saul has been advising us on the maintenance of the website of the Bribie Island Sailing Club for the past few years and has been very helpful in assisting us to manage this site, whilst minimising the costs involved. His approach is down to earth, using layman terms, which has been a great help. I would recommend him to others.

As State Manager for Queensland Dial Before You Dig I would like to pass on our thanks to Straight Talk Technology Services for the excellent support and service you have provided to our business over a 16 year period.  Ensuring all IT requirements are being managed and maintained is critical for any business and this is certainly the case with the service you have provided us with.

Rick was invaluable to our sailing club with his IT knowledge in developing our website, sail training programs and social media. He always quoted “Our website is the front door to our club. “

He was also a great asset to me when I was developing a start up business on Bribie Island. The business was “Your Personal Transfers.” His input was the key to its success. 

Would highly recommend Rick’s IT knowledge and business development skills.
