Here’s what our clients say that makes us blush…
Need some Apple computer assistance?! I’ve met a man who is both consistently skilled at everything I’ve needed, and a pleasure to spend time with. I’m easily flustered with computer skills and his approach is simplified and clear, and I’m sure he’s adjusting how he teaches to fit my particular needs… from basic technical help to cleaning up the confused state that my emails and documents have become.
Numerous trips to the Apple store and very skilled on-line help has seemed to be helpful, but each technician has a different approach which has left me confused and with piece-meal solutions.
Getting help that pulls all the threads together saved me endless hours of frustration and time on the phone.
And then, to top it off, he dealt with Shaw on my behalf and I’ll be getting a much better contract at a cheaper rate! Mediation skills too!
Conclusion: Need help? Just ask! He’s your man!
We are glade we found Aurelien and his company, Creative Elements. After being swindled by 2 other company in less than 3 years, we finally got the website we were looking for. An effective and adjustable website with the honesty and the service we need to maintain it!
Aurelien was really patient with us and take all the time we needed and adjust all the small detail we were asking for.
The result, is the best website creation experience! He also took the time to explain all our option and even propose great future to help us improve our idea. The after service is there as well, he continue to follow our file and give us update and suggestion to always improve and maintain the website to make sure everything is secure and up to date.
Anytime I will recommend Aurelien for your website need.
I highly recommend Aurelien to anyone who needs help making their IT systems work more efficiently. He has an amazing breadth of intelligence and skills, making him a great asset for all sizes of organizations. Glad a came across him and I look forward to working with him again in the future.
Aurelien helped me when I had little time, was stressed, and couldn’t get my devices (my Mac Mini, my iPhone, and iPad) to work properly. He even helped me get the tv to work!
I had a bunch of random questions and issues. Here are some of them:
– How do I deal with the iCloud back up. “iPhone cannot be backed up because it enough iCloud storage.”
– Safari/email keeps losing my internet connection
– What’s the difference between an album and ??? in photos.
– How do I get my photos off my phone
– What is the difference between “Photos” and “iPhoto”?
Aurelien asked me to prioritize my list and then we tackled the most important items in the time frames we had. What hadn’t occurred to me, but Aurelien recognized right away were two big problems:
1. My modem was really, really old. He talked to Telus, and we arranged for a service person to change the modem.
2. I did not have enough RAM, which he fixed on his second visit.
What I really liked about working with Aurelien was:
– He came to me, so I didn’t have to take all my devices somewhere else.
– He was positive and encouraging.
– He used really good teaching strategies, which helped me to remember new information.
– He made useful and appropriate suggestions for two apps that would make what I wanted to do easier.
My husband found Aurelien after googling for Apple training to help us understand and effectively use all of our products, and specifically clean-up the mess we’d made of all of our music and photos. When I was able to play a song sung by my father (long since deceased) on my iPhone and share with people, that was the moment it become clear that what Aurelien provides goes far beyond technology training. I then continued working with him for support in developing my new business, and have made many processes more efficient and professional. As a “mature” couple who’ve stumbled our way through the world of computerized-everything, it’s great to know there’s someone out there that can patiently and effectively answer all of our questions. We have a common tagline in our house now – “just ask Aurelien”!
We are very happy to have been introduced to Aurelien and his services.
His experience and his knowledge has help us set up a highly functional IT environment for both our restaurants, Cassis Bistro and Suzette Bistro.
Aurelien is very good at listening and understanding specific needs and delivers a solid solution. He can adapt his training to accommodate any level of knowledge and skill set.
He quickly responds to emergency situations. He is very reliable and we highly recommend him.
Thank you for sharing your time and expertise with the ACAD Jewellery+ Metals senior students.
Your ability to deliver the information on how to navigate WordPress has given the artists the confidence to build their web presence.
The group has commented on how the mystery of building a comprehensive and well design website is now a part of their creative tool box! We appreciate what we have learned from you and will be putting our new knowledge into practise.
I had been looking for somebody to create a new website for quite some time, but most people were to “techie” for me and I could not relate to them.
When I met Aurelien I right away sensed that he had a holistic approach and had an understanding of the service industry.
I am very happy with my website. It is alive and vibrant.
I love my new logo and I especially appreciated the process of creating the new logo together with Aurelien, the graphic artist, my husband Willem and myself.
I appreciate Aurelien’s patience during the creative process because I needed time to become crystal clear what I wanted.
Aurelien was referred to me by a close friend.
He is professional and knowledgeable about the online world.
Aurelien was patient in answering all my questions and took the time to show me exactly what he was doing behind the scenes on my website enabling me to do it on my own.
I always learn something new when we work together.
I was referred to Aurelien by a good friend. He had done an amazing website for her, and I wanted to update my practice website as well.
From the beginning Aurelien was very thorough and made sure all of our requirements were met. He spent a lot of time with me one on one designing the website, the colors, and a new logo.
I am very happy with the final result, we have received so many compliments from patients and colleagues on the user friendliness and the look and feel of the website.
Thank you Aurelien, your hard work and attention to detail has really made a difference for our practice.
After some extensive travelling, and having taken some wonderful photos we wanted to make into books, we called upon Aurelien, from Creative Elements, to teach us how to use Aperture.
His expertise, and his patience with us, during our one-on-one appointments was so appreciated. We went off topic several times to ask questions and he was happy to assist us in all areas, ie: organizing our pictures in iphoto, backing up our Macs, tips on how to layout a book, how to fine tune our photos in Aperture and the list goes on.
We ended up with a beautiful book from our Africa trip that Aurelien sat with us and helped lay out. Learning in the comfort of our own home and having Aurelien there was excellent.
His expertise and calm demeanour is invaluable…… I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Working with Aurelien was a pleasure. To pick only three attributes doesn’t fully describe the service he provides.
From the beginning concept of what we were looking for right through to the final product, Aurelien was on target and exceeded our expectations and needs.
His timeliness, efficiency and creativity made the project effortless. Aurelien takes the time to understand all aspects of the client.
His product and service is a great display of passion and knowledge.
We have recently opened a guest house. We knew that the success of our project depended mainly on the quality of the website.
Calling upon Aurelien’s skills and professionalism through his company “Creative Elements”, we haven’t been disappointed. The website is performing really well, it is praised and loved by our guests who find it attractive, beautiful and easy to use.
Thank you for your professionalism and your availability that contributed to a very good start of our project.
We were very happy with our current website but wanted to make it more mobile friendly. I had approached several firms for a quote but was not happy with their response and pricing.
Aurelien a new commercial insurance client to our office approached me to see if can be of any service and after letting him know what I needed he was able to provide me some good options. He setup our website on a great new platform that was very mobile friendly but also enhanced our overall website and made it easier to navigate and use. Aurelien provided me a very competitive price that included not just a mobile site but a brand new site.
Aurelien was very easy to deal with and very accommodating throughout the whole process. He is very professional and followed through with the proposal and timelines he promised on.
I would recommend Aurelien to any company looking to create a new website or enhance the current one they have.
The use of Creative Elements Consulting Inc., to help us create a new logo for our company along with refine our web presence, was a great success.
Aurelien took the time to: really understand our business; our successes; the keys to which we believe make us unique; along with direction we are moving towards. His creative ideas helped us establish a solid foundation for the communication and advertising needs of our business, not only with the refinement of our logo and website, but the integration with other social media channels like LinkedIn.
Outside of the technical expertise Aurelien brings to the table, he is also very scope, schedule and cost focused allowing us to stay on task, and on track, for the delivery of this project.
With the success of this project, we’ve made the easy decision to engage Creative Elements for additional services and support. We are truly happy with what he delivered and where we are going.
I have been a PC user for years, and when I decided to get an iPad, I worked with Aurélien to learn the most effective ways to use it. He is an excellent teacher: knowledgeable and encouraging. He challenges me to think about how to solve problems on my own. Aurélien has also been proactive in introducing me to several new apps that will make my life easier. I most strongly recommend him.
Recently our company engaged the services of Creative Elements Consulting Inc. to help with some projects we were working on.
We needed input that was both creative and tutorial. Creative Elements Consulting Inc. was more than able to deliver in both areas. The work was done on time and on budget and with a sense of understanding of our business model and culture. I would not hesitate to use Creative Elements Consulting Inc. for future projects.
I had the pleasure of working with Aurelien while having my website redesigned. His patience and sincere enquiry into my vision and goals for the website and my business were invaluable.
He was always on time for appointments and took all feedback to heart in an open and professional manner. His ideas and passion for the success of the project inspired me to reach for the best vision possible for my work as a coach.
I continue to work with him as I move toward publishing articles and Newsletters as well as considering videos for my site. He is professional at all times and has in depth knowledge of the technical requirements of web development and artistic display.
He continues to learn and grow in his own field by studying new technologies and artistic design. His work ethic is exceptional. I have no hesitation in recommending Aurelien to anyone requiring professional web design and construction as well as video and audio projects.
We had Aurelien Jondeau from “Creative Elements Consulting Inc.” come to our home to set up some electronic issues that we were unable to do ourselves.
Aurelien is a great listener, did all the required tasks and like the terrific teacher that he is, he reviewed what he had done, I took notes on all the steps and he verified/corrected them, and he left us a very happy pair. We can now use our TV as we had planned, use the ‘Apple TV’ and run a slide show from both the Mac and PC computers through the TV or the iPhone.
The truth is that we are not that tecky even though we have a lot of tecky stuff around, however, with Aurelien’s direction, everything works and it is all wonderful. BTW, did you know that you can use your iPhone as a lazer when showing slide shows on the TV? Very cool!
[…]I worked with Aurelien and he was very helpful. […] I thought it would be awesome to be able to have some help with the computer while I was away….just in case! […]I was absolutely delighted to be able to now have tech support while abroad in Mexico.
Prior to leaving Calgary, Aurelien came to my house for a couple of sessions to show me how to sign a document without needing to print and scan, among other things he believed I might need to know while out of the country. Each session I have had with Aurelien I have found him to be very knowledgeable and helpful. He is patient and is able to explain in terms that I can understand.
I highly recommend Aurelien.
Aurelien has taken a homemade, amateur video and transformed it into a video that is interesting and easy to watch. He really listens to what you, the customer, would like to portray to your audience and also offers new ideas and advice. A creative, talented and intuitive young man! Thank you Aurelien for making my business more accessible!
Aurelien has been a terrific in helping me implement different ideas into my teaching. The one on one training is excellent and allows me to work at my own pace. Aurelien was instrumental in helping me develop my personal and classroom blog. Developing the blog not only will help my students, but has helped me reflect as a teacher as well. Take a look at my class website: http://missvidotto.edublogs.org/.
The blog looks professional and Aurelien was always willing to answer questions or
concerns that I had when I arrived for training.
In addition, I recently began using a Mac computer. Aurelien spent time teaching me commands that would allow me to work at a more efficient pace. Introducing me to key chain has been terrific as a way to remember my forgotten passwords. In addition, Aurelien has spent time showing me how to use iMovie and different apps such as Over can be implemented in the classroom. This a terrific way to engage my students and have them find ways of applying what they have learned more into the real world.
Aurelien is flexible with his time and was willing to work around my busy schedule as I live in Lethbridge and was commuting to Calgary for training. He is also willing to setup Skype sessions which is great.
Aurelien’s training has helped me learn new and engaging things I can incoporate into my classroom. This is turn creates happy and engaged students!
I would highly recommend Aurelien if you are looking for training in setting up a blog, website, or Apple training.
I actually met Aurelien through a LinkedIn Group; we seemed to have a lot in common, so we met up. Turns out he not only does a great job with web sites, but he’s incredibly passionate about what he does and has a fantastic energy about him! People just naturally connect with him, which is important when you do end-user training, as he does for Apple products.
If you’re looking either for some help with your web site, or for training, I’d say look no further – meet Aurelien!
I have been using the services of Creative Elements Consulting for a few years. Creative Elements Consulting was very creative and professional in setting up my web page for my new teaching facility in Edmonton; the Manhattan centre for dental studies and technologies. I continue to use their services on an ongoing basis and I highly recommend them. Good Value and Great Results!
