"To say that I have little confidence in my abilities to grasp most computer applications is a vast understatement. Yesterday's class reminded me however that I really can do more than I sometimes think I can.
"You have given me the skills I've needed to tackle PowerPoint!"
-- Patricia Stocker, Library Consulting

"Barbara Moore of Net Results made a presentation to our group, RPCN (Rochester Professional Consultants Network) at our monthly speakers program. The topic was Advanced Tools and Techniques - Word and Excel.
"In the several years I have been attending these sessions, this was certainly one of the most helpful, productive, and well presented talks we have had.
"Barbara's mastery of the subject matter, coupled with her excellent presentation and wit made for a truly worthwhile experience for all in attendance, as evidenced by the congratulatory atmosphere displayed after the talk.
"I would strongly recommend Barbara for presentations to groups of any size and background."
-- John Bok, RPCN Program Coordinator
"Great presentation, Barbara. You are always very informative as well as entertaining. Your warm, comfortable style in teaching social media encourages even those who lean toward technophobia to jump in and give it a try. You are always engaging with well prepared and organized material. Bravo and well done, Barbara."

How often does the image of a middle-aged woman and former librarian come to mind when you think of a techie? Yes, that describes Barbara Moore, owner of Moore Results, a business that trains people how to use their computers and troubleshoots computer problems.
In 1996 Barbara started her business. This was after she had been a librarian for more than 25 years. She never dreamed that she would go into business for herself. But she loves it. She loves training.
Her last librarian position was as Assistant Director of Libraries for Automation at the University of Rochester. At the University she experienced first hand how exciting it is to access information on the Internet. She was a key player in the development of the University's web site.
Barbara has had the experience of working with computers in libraries. She installed the first automated library system for the Monroe County Library System -- a system of public libraries located near Rochester, New York.
One of her proud accomplishments from her library history: Receiving Honorable Mention for her Barbie Doll morgue entry to American Libraries' 101-uses-for-a-dead-catalog contest (November 1982). (Well, think about it. Aren't Barbie Dolls a perfect fit for those old card catalog drawers?!!)
And if you want to go way back ... Barbara can tell stories of trudging to the computer center (uphill, in the snow, with no shoes of course) to keypunch Fortran code on computer cards.
Barbara believes in giving back to her community. She donates her time to maintaining websites and updating social media sites for the Rochester Women's Giving Circle, NOW - New York State and Rochester NOW.
She is a member of the Rochester Professional Consultants Network (RPCN) and follows its Code of Ethics.
