My name is Tony Breach, I provide Computer Technical Support and Training for the VIP Lounge. I was first registered partially sighted when I was born, and from the age of 16, I was registered as blind.
From the age of 5 to the age of 16 I went to school in a specialist school for all disabilities in Bristol, from the age of 8 I started a residential course at the school for 4 nights a week where I started to learn the skills that would start me off later in life.
From the age of 16, I moved to Birmingham and went to Queen Alexandra College for the Blind, where I studied engineering, manufacturing and information technology.2005 I became a director of a company called Focus insight based in Birmingham. I did that for a couple of years we would get a national lottery grant and do different projects One project we did was on disability I left that to continue studying at Queen Alexandra College to further my information technology qualification whilst they’re looking for
In 2005, I became a director of a company called Focus Insight based in Birmingham. I did that for a couple of years, Each year Focus Insight would get a national lottery grant and do different projects, One project we did was on disability.
I left Focus Insight to continue studying at Queen Alexandra College to further my information technology qualification whilst looking for jobs, Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any jobs due to my disability and employers’ reluctance to employ a blind person.
I joined The V.I.P. Lounge as a lounger in late 2015, I am part of the Tech and Training team when we help other presenters in training and loungers with technical issues with everyday devices used, I also run our TeamTalk server details of this you can find on our website.
I hope you have many hours of enjoyment within the VIP Lounge Group many thanks.
