I was very impressed with both Dave and the content of his presentation. I am not tech savy and am just learning about “social media”. I went away with new knowledge and ideas I wanted to try. Thanks for all the info in a “lingo” that even I could understand. Entertaining, easy to understand and follow and very well presented. Kellie Smith
Kel’s Korners Framing
David’s presentation was bang on. He had information for those of us that think we know it all and those that are just getting started in this maze of social media. His advice was practical, his presentation engaging. Our only mistake was not keeping him here about an hour longer. Roxanne Clark

Lots of information I had never considered/known… Opened my eyes about what was available to be used by businesses. Goldsmith/Owner
Very Knowledgable about subject. The use of visual aids/contests were very well done. NO POWER POINT!! Thank-you…Nothing is worse than sitting through long/Boring power point presentations. Very well done and covered a lot of key information in 45 minutes. Drumheller Business Owner
I have a number of very good takeaways from the session. The length of today’s session was about right, although it was very engaging and I would have enjoyed a little more time. Rob Lunman

Great speaker! Nice prizes for the audience, got them engaged. I did enjoy all the tips at the end. Quite a few that I can take back to our organization and apply. Would have enjoyed hearing more! Chamber of Commerce
The speaker David Papp was exceptional, easy to listen to and very easy to follow along with his presentation. I was disappointed when it was over. The sesssion was very informative. I learnt things about google and facebook as well as the other social media options that I never knew before. Brenda DeMille

Mr. Papp was interesting to listen to and a knowledgable presenter. I especially liked his personal story of the robin’s eggs hatching on his acreage and remembered seeing this on the news on TV.I liked the graphs that were shown demonstrating how the Internet and social networking tools have grown over the last few years. I also liked the information provided about social networking tools that I didn’t even know existed. It was a good presentation for people like myself who only know the very basics of tools like facebook. Based on the info that I was shown in the session I now understand the different types of social networking tools and how they are used.

David kept everyone engaged and interested. It was very interesting. Linda Brent

enjoyed his presentation!

There was a lot of interesting information presented in the presentation. I especially thought that the “top ten” videos were a great way of demonstrating the big picture in a nutshell. I myself do not have a facebook or twitter account, but I found the information about the “how to use social networks” were presented very well for an audience that would otherwise be unfamiliar with them. Nikita Parmar
Provincial Crown Prosecutor’s Office
David is very knowledgeable and able had a good delivery style. I was glad to get the overview on the different types of social media, and even though am familiar with most of them, it helped me with the couple I wasn’t as familiar with. As an introduction course, it was well done. I would consider going to a more in depth session to allow me use some social media better. Leanne Gruber
Government of Alberta
David was extrememly knowledgable and presented very well. The time we had with him definately went by too fast. The session was targeted to a “new to social networking” audience. I was hoping that there would be more discussion of facebook rumours, privacy, how to keep yourself safe, etc, etc. I already have all the accounts that he covered, and I was just hoping to learn more about what he thought about the different social networking sites, as opposed to how they worked. However, this took nothing away from his presentation, and I did enjoy my breakout session very much. We were on limited time, and actually, I would have prefered to have at least a Q&A session before we had to go. I also enjoyed the little competitions that he had. I liked his use of technology :) Had I been an interent noob…I definately would have gained a lot from what was presented :) Crystal Smith
Government of Alberta
David was an excellent speaker. He spoke with the audience, not to the audience. David’s presentation was easy to follow and understand. Overall the session was informative and entertaining. Government of Alberta
Fantastic and engaging presentation! Very interesting Facts. I thought I knew a fair bit about the Internet and facts, however I learned so much yesterday! Lindsay Cashin

All the staff members who attended your presentation were extremely pleased. I spoke with many of the teachers in attendance and they stated that they not only learned a good deal, they were very entertained, as well.It was very kind of you to take part in our Division Technology Day. We really appreciated having you present to our staff. You provided an area of technology that is prevalent in our society and now in our schools. We have just barely tapped into your wealth of knowledge and experience and hope that we can work with you again in the future. Jeannine Bobrowsky

I saw your Amazing Social Media presentation a few weeks ago at our division technology PD and absolutely loved it.Thanks and again your presentation was very enlightening! Kurt Davison

I cannot recommend David highly enough. David has done everything from network audits to specialized wireless solutions to network setup/configuration. What I like most: he comes in, gets it done and leaves. Doesn’t sound like much? Try having 10 things mis-configured after someone fixes your one network problem! Scott Tetz

Our company, The Internet Centre, has worked with David for many years on different projects both simple and complicated. David is arguably the most capable and informed Internet and computer network professional in Alberta. There may be other people who are just as capable, but none more capable, than David in all aspects of secure networking and operations. He and his staff have been an invaluable assistant and mentor for some of the more complicated secure networks that we, as the oldest Internet Service Provider in the Province of Alberta, have had to establish and maintain. We have received excellent feedback from customers to whom we have referred David, and he quite simply gets the job done. He is a professional, honest, and hard working individual, and we will continue to avail ourselves of his expertise and talents going forward. We would recommend him to any of our customers.

Cash Canada has used Microtek in the past for both consultation and break fix purposes. David and his staff have been a great value to our organization, with their skill set and knowledge base they have come through for us on more than one occasion. David has even taken the time out from his holidays to answer my questions, one time while on the chair lift in Banff. We have engaged Microtek in the build out and move of our virtual environment to our new corporate location.I would recommend Microtek to any company looking for a reliable and knowledgeable partner for any IT related project.

David’s troubleshooting skills are phenomenal and have pulled us out of more than one bind. His knowledge of Cisco networking equipment has proven invaluable to us in our growth as a service provider. His general knowledge of network design and troubleshooting continues to be extremely useful to our organization. Generally speaking, ‘These guys know their stuff’. Professionalism, patience, and courtesy are demonstrated throughout each project. I would recommend his services to anyone in need of network engineering. Robert A. Snyder
Clearwave Communications
David and Microtek have been servicing all of our IT, data, and communication needs since 2003. Their remarkable expertise and professionalism was immediately evident from the first time we received service, leaving us with no doubt as to whom we would utilize for all future needs.Since our first communication, we have enjoyed consistent service of the very highest quality ever possibly expected, with immediate response to all requests. They manifest a diverse background, providing for “one-stop shopping” for any communication or data need.

Our only regret about working with the team at Microtek is that we did not find them sooner. The innovation, stability, service, and quality they provide has vastly improved the quality of our business, and taught us many lessons about what it means to care for one’s customer.
