Who are the minds behind Boost IT?

Sha and Rich at the expo

Sha Nayagar is the website expert

“I always think about people interacting with our team, and how to improve what we deliver to their business and just as people connecting. It’s a large part of why we choose to hire Australian based staff. We want to bring a tailored but efficient approach to small businesses to really help them get more out of having one provider for both IT Services and Website Services.”

Richard Cowley is the IT specialist

“We believe that by delivering IT Services & Support with end-to-end service, integrity and transparency, clients will choose to stay with us. We have never had the need to lock in clients with contracts.”

Sha and Richard started Boost IT armed with ambition, curiosity, and a passion for making effective business technology accessible. They built the foundation of Boost IT on integrity, continuous education, and building long-lasting connections with people.

Found out how they met, when they realised that tech was their path to something bigger, and what they have planned for the future of Boost IT.

READ INTERVIEW

How did you meet?

Sha: I had returned to Sydney after living in London. He was the first person I was introduced to by my boss. Rich surprised me with his ability to boil down a 20-page manual into 8 bullet points. I tend to deep dive into everything. He was strictly goal-oriented and a man of his word. So that’s how we connected.

Why are you so fascinated by computers?

Richard: My computer journey started at age 9. I used to do basic programming on the old Commodore 64 computer at my home. Then I started playing around with DOS when IBM computers became mainstream in the mid to late ’80s. My fascination has continued ever since as computer technology changes daily. 

How did you realise that business tech was for you?

Sha: I was one of those geeks in the computer lab at lunch. It was always going to be my first choice heading into uni. I don’t know if it was websites that interested me most initially, but I always loved beautiful, practical solutions. Web development offers both: code and design. When Rich and I started interacting with business owners, we always talked about making tech more accessible and create long term partnerships by adding real value. It’s not just support, but also constant communication, being proactive, getting to know their trajectory and tailor our service—all that.

What inspires you?

Sha: So many things! A person can inspire me by the way they talk about their story or their journey. I’m very much interested in story telling using art and design. Internet technology is the fastest-changing field in human history and provides continual inspiration. I admire women like Gillian Triggs, AOC and Stacey Abrams, who stand up and stand out. Many social programs and movements are teaching how we can contribute to a better society. Great products and customer service journeys inspire us. Our staff, partners and clients inspire us everyday. Learning lessons from human history and being out in nature is inspiring. My list goes on and on.

Richard: Seeing the younger generation coming up with new technology ideas is inspiring. Especially when they aim to make the world a better place, their enthusiasm is infectious. 

What are the most important lessons that you’ve learned so far?

Sha: One is that focusing on the big picture is extremely important. That is something I need to relearn over and over again. It’s also crucial to surround yourself with the right people.

Richard: We are all individuals; everyone needs room to grow and become the person they dream of being.

What are your plans for the future of Boost IT?

Sha: The ultimate desire is to build Boost IT into a company that matters. Most companies you see in the world, if they disappear, it does not matter. Someone else is making that same thing you need. We are continuously asking ourselves this question: How can we build a company that matters? It’s not just being able to provide great service, but how we can do it repeatedly and how can we do it better and better.

I always think about clients interacting with our team, and how to improve what we deliver to their business and just as humans connecting. It’s why we choose to hire Australian based staff. We want to bring a tailored but efficient approach to small businesses to really help them get more out of having one provider for both IT and Website Services.

We nurture staff to build their capabilities and, as a whole, we want to move ahead with our core focus on building relationships that matter to clients, staff, suppliers and the wider community. 

Richard: It’s pretty simple, really. I want to take the complication out of technology for customers. Sometimes technology companies can overcomplicate things when customers just want technology to produce an outcome that makes their lives easier and improves their business efficiency.
