> Boyd Leathlean
Founder and Owner
In 1991 Boyd worked for Golden Era Productions International. He was given management training whilst working in the Import Division. This enabled him to see and understand the inner workings of an international company. He also received additional education in management through statistics, business ethics, Microsoft DOS, Word, Excel and telex machines.
In 1992 Boyd was employed by Siltek as a computer technician. He started working on IBM and HP computers off an assembly line. He later graduated to testing the machines and networking them. With the training and experience gained from these two positions he decided to set up his own company.
Boyd's lifelong fascination with computing started when he was 9 years old. He obtained a very basic ZX Spectrum computer, read some books on the subject and wrote a few computer games. This convinced him that he had found his direction in life. He has dedicated his IT skills to helping others who have the need to use computers but who may need some guidance with the technology.
> Cup of Java Computing
In 1993 he started trading as an IT Technician under the Cup of Java.
- Buying and selling computers
- Buying and selling software
- Repairing computers

In 2000 Boyd registered a company under the name Cup of Java Computing cc. He opened the first of two internet cafes in Kensington, Johannesburg, South Africa.
He continued his IT work while also handling all the hardware and software maintenance of the machines of the Cafes. The Cafes offered a stable income but the call-out service suffered. Then a new opportunity presented itself.
After closing the internet cafes Boyd went for two web development courses and started trading as "The IT Pro." However, since deciding to relocate to the UK, all services have now been combined under the name of Cup of Java Computing, which offers a solid, well designed, professional look to all websites.
