Network Wizkid was created by Kelvin Charles in 2014; initially as an alias for Kelvin to be able to contribute to the tech community while he was studying for his Computer Science degree. However, over the years, the Network Wizkid has transformed into a brand well-known for knowledge sharing with technical communities across multiple platforms. Moreover, Network Wizkid has helped transform the lives of those seeking new endeavours within the tech industry by providing mentorship and guidance to individuals worldwide.

Today, Network Wizkid continues to contribute to tech communities through content creation and has created several services to help individuals and small to mid-sized (SMB) businesses excel in the world of technology.

About our Founder

Kelvin is a Cyber Security professional with years of experience working with organisations in different large and small verticals. He enjoys contributing to the Network Wizkid knowledge base through his blog posts and also creates technical content on YouTube. Kelvin enjoys learning new things and often does this by working on achieving new technical certifications. When Kelvin isn’t busy with content creation and work, you will find him spending time with his family or helping to inspire individuals looking at getting into tech.

A quote that Kelvin believes has contributed to his success…

“In order to level up, you must recognise your failures, not just your successes.”
