The Jedi Grand Master of Microsoft Office trainers...
Hi there, I'm Lucy Ignatiadis and I run Iguana. I live in Worthing on the sunny Sussex coast with my unbelievably energetic puppy Oscar. I love experiencing new things, including learning new experiences, travelling to new places and trying out the latest adventure activity.
I have been a trainer for over 8 years and have traveled all over the world training clients on highly bespoke relationship management systems. I have been using Microsoft Office for over 15 years and training it to friends and colleagues alike ever since! About 5 years ago while working with the NHS, I studied for the Microsoft Office certifications. With some hard work and pure dogged determination I passed my certifications and was able to achieve the level of Microsoft Certified Trainer (or in other words the Jedi Grand Master of all Microsoft Office Trainers!).
I set up my very first Iguana business aged 7 when I was selling spider plants to neighbours, then again when I was 13 to sell cushions. So when I started my own business in 2010 there was no question on the business name "Iguana".
Building Iguana has been the most amazing learning experience for me and a tumultuous emotional roller coaster of ups and downs. I've been very lucky to have been supported and mentored through it all by Nigel Botterill and his Entrepreneurs Circle.
If you want to know more about my background, the systems I have trained and the training programmes I have created please check out my linkedin profile.
Here's what our customers are saying about us
I have found working with Lucy to be a particularly pleasant and rewarding experience. Most people do a job merely to pay the bills, however, training is Lucy's true calling - I now positively seek opportunities to recommend her.– Ade Oduyemi - Maximum Inheritance Specialists
Lucy at Iguana Business Solutions has just saved me hours and hours of work through a quick fix to something I was doing in Excel. I cannot praise her highly enough, if you need someone that knows what they are talking about call Lucy at Iguana NOW!– Alison Burden-Blake - InkSpot Social Media
Loved working with Lucy today, found her training on Social Media extremely useful, and will be sure to use it in my day to day work. It was a pleasure to have someone like Lucy train me, because not only did she provide me with fantastic training material, she was also very easy to work alongside, and I really look forward to training with her in the future. I would fully recommend Lucy to anyone that needs that extra bit of help using social media and knowledge on how to promote your organisation effectively.– Charleigh Crisp - Age UK West Sussex
Excellent, I had no knowledge of using Excel at all. Lucy came along and gave me excellent basic training. Will definitely use again with the further training in excel program.– Donna Heasman - Wire Wizards

All good! excellent twitter introduction.– Joel Davis - PB Davis Insurance
Lucy gave excellent training on Microsoft Excel not only providing answers for what I needed to do, but also giving advice and examples of how I could get better use of it. Easy to deal with and understand– Kim Hayes - Ocean Press - May 31st 2011
My P.A. and I were tearing our hair out with various word processing issues surrounding a mail-shot we had to get out. In desperation I rang a friend who recommended Lucy. It's fair to say it took Lucy all of 5 minutes to diagnose and provide a solution that cured the problem. I can't recommend Lucy highly enough, her skills and resources saved me a lot of money and I look forward to working with her in the future.– Mark Wilson DipPFS - Independent Financial Advisor
Lucy has opened up the world of tweeting- fabulous - a really fun session.– Rebecca Woodley - Trinity Financial Associates
I am self-employed and so rarely get the opportunity to update my IT skills. Moreover, I am not really aware of what I can expect from my computer software.
It was so helpful to explain to Lucy how I use my computer on a daily basis. She was able to teach me the specific things I wanted to learn but was also able to suggest many more tips that have helped me enormously.
Some trainers whiz through the keys and show you how it's done - and when they have gone you don't even know where to begin. Lucy talked through the steps but allowed me to do it. She then sent through helpful sheets to remind me what I had learned.
A great service all round - huge patience and understanding from Lucy.– Rebecca Woodley - Trinity Financial Associates
Thank you for your assistance recently in relation to the issue we had with the excel spreadsheet we were dealing with. Once again you expert knowledge and infectious enthusiasm saved the day and saved us what would have been several hours of manual data inputting.
The task of creating 2500 unique, system compliant passwords for an existing list of website users in a format that was compatible with the database we were using was reduced to a matter of minutes saving us considerable time and the associated costs.
Thanks once again– Stuart Hutchinson - Danson Digital Limited
Lucy is quite simply the best Microsoft trainer you will find - we've used her to get our staff up to speed on a number of office applications and the girl is a genius! Not just at showing you exactly what's what with the system it self but, just as importantly, at putting you at ease and making it very simple to learn. She is also hugely skilled at putting together training videos so if you need something you can show time and time again, I highly recommend Iguana Business Solutions.– Tracy Thomas - Saucy Horse
