Akira Shirahama

IT Consultant

Akira was born and raised in Yokohama.

In 1998, when the internet was not quite so commonly used, he became involved with business consulting services by utilising his expertise in the new internet technology. In 2001 he moved to the UK and after acquiring a diploma in Japanese language teaching he spent ten years working as an engineer at an IT firm.

His experience with website design and IT allows him to meet existing, new and future technical challenges. His inter-personal skills enable him to interpret the client’s needs sympathetically.
