I have known Ian Handricks for at least six years.  Over this time Ian has freely given his time to many of my students as a mentor and also guest lecturer on a number of undergraduate courses.  

Ian has such a wealth of business (and general life skills) knowledge that he has made and continues to make an important contribution to the lives of these students. Ian has also, on occasion, offered his extensive editing services to post-graduates who are about to submit their MCom or PhD theses.  In addition, Ian and I have worked on various business projects and ideas and I have always found his approach to be intelligent, insightful, creative and certainly cutting edge.  


I look forward to continuing to work with Ian as a friend of the University of Auckland Business School, over the coming years.

I first met Ian Handricks quite some years ago when he was partly involved in his Hirstlens business, but also launching his online photo restoration business. That was highly impressive.

Later, after I joined SeniorNet North Shore, Ian appeared as a guest speaker & was a highly experienced teacher & demonstrator of such diverse topics as Photoshop, ProShow Gold/Producer (an audio visual program), genealogy & iPads.

Ian has a very high IQ, is very generous with his time & knowledge & is an inspiring teacher who makes friends easily.

I have been very fortunate to know Ian, as well as having gained much from his lessons & talks.

I  have known Ian Handricks for over 10 years and enjoy his company as a personal friend.  As a speaker he has the ability to pass on his knowledge in an interesting and vibrant way including humour at times to keep the interest level high. He handles questions with ease and is always well prepared for his talks.  

He is able to field both technical and practical questions and sets up his equipment in plenty of time for lectures. He is extremely knowledgeable and is a divergent thinker, which is a bonus.


Ian has helped me to produce Family History Books and his advice here has been invaluable. He expects high standards of anything he produces and honours his word at all times. 


Ian is an Honorary Life Member of our SeniorNet Computing Club and is a favourite speaker of our members. He gives his time freely and is able to cover a wide range of computer based topics. He specialises in iPad and photo restoration but is also capable of many other facets of computing and delights in showing new apps and equipment he has found useful. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

The important thing is to dare to dream big, then take action to make it come true. ~ Joe Girard
