Brendan Howe


Brendan Howe is the CEO and owner of TDCNet. In that role he advises TDCNet’s small and mid-sized business clients on how to effectively use technology to increase their company’s efficiency, profitability and security.

Brendan has three goals for every business he works with:

  • Have IT systems and a network that just works, freeing business owners from recurring issues and frustrating computer problems.

  • Provide all staff with fast and effective Help Desk support when they have computer issues or requests they need solved.

  • Receive and use top notch advice on how to use technology better to achieve business goals.

Brendan frequently conducts seminars and training sessions for business owners, many of whom find technology frustrating and don’t have time to keep track of the latest developments. Brendan sees his role as someone who can explain technology solutions in plain English that business owners can easily understand. Brendan writes TDCNet’s monthly technology strategy brief “Managing Uptime” and frequently posts advice for business owners on the TDCNet Blog. His new TDCNet Tech Tip videos have also become quite popular.

Brendan has also authored several E-Books, including:
