About Korryn Haines
Hey, I’m Korryn — Your Brisbane Techie Tinkerer & Implementor
I hadn’t planned to start a business. But when I landed a client (accidentally), I figured I might as well roll with it. And so Encore Admin Consulting was born in 2016.
Starting a business that was based online awakened my techy mind. I found I had a knack for getting in there and working out how the tech worked. Learning on the fly made me realise these systems I’d set up got my business ticking along quickly, and I was able to do the same for my clients.
I soon moved away from merely ‘doing’ the admin for other people, to strategising and showing them how to use tech correctly to self-manage their business admin.
And I love it.
I love being their tech mechanic – getting in and tinkering under their business bonnet and making their systems purr along beautifully.
5 Fun facts about a tech lover
I’ve always been a tad insane, once being a hockey goalie.
I’m a pop music tragic and do love the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys (and P!nk if that gives me back some street cred).
I wanted to work in the music industry,
but my other love of being the admin doer
(& earning money) won.
I taught myself to play the guitar, and I’m now bashing away at drums – I’ll be a one-woman band soon.
I’m a tea tottler – English breakfast,
white with one thanks.
The out of office Korryn
When I’m not the tech implementor for my clients, I’m the day to day organiser, the peacekeeper, the dietary and emotional wellbeing officer and the giver of many hugs.
I’m a mum to two munchkins Hayden and Ella, the wife to a lovely man Darren, and hooman mum to a fur baby, Cocker Spaniel, Angel (who is my Chief Furry Officer).
Business tech, life qualifications
I’m pretty sure that having a hubby, kids and dog has taught me massive life organisational skills, enhancing the reason I looked for and found ways for tech to make my business life more streamlined.
But if you’re wondering what ‘real’ quals I have, here they are:
- Bachelor of Business (Marketing)
- Diploma of Human Resource Management
- Certificate IV in Property Services – Registration (REIQ)
- Certificate III in Business Administration
- G Suite Administrator Fundamentals by Google Cloud (Coursera)
- Introduction to Cloud Identity by Google Cloud (Coursera)
