Birgit Pauli-Haack – @bph
Birgit is a dynamic lady. Between managing Pauli Systems, Gutenberg Times, and WP4Good, she still finds time to curate helpful WordPress information for everyone who follows her. She seems to always want to help others and we dig that she’s using WordPress to make the world a better place. We aspire to follow in her footsteps.
Technology is no longer just a way for charities to gain exposure for their respective causes; in many cases, tech is actually becoming a focal point for these organizations.FullStack Academy
This shift in focus means the nonprofit sector is now bursting with talented developers who are at the very top of their games. Whether they’re increasing access to education, advancing diversity within the tech industry, or championing the success of multiple charitable organizations, these folks are working hard to give their all—and give back—every day.

Sandy Lender, Fantasy Author & Chair of Naples Writers’ Conference
Most recently, Birgit awed me with her exemplary web-building and web-managing skills by developing an interactive site for the NPC Writers’ Conference. The platform she created provided an easy way for me to post news during the months leading up to the conference. The search engine optimization skills she employed to bring attention to our event brought added value to an already impressive gameplan. Birgit knows how to optimize an organization’s (or an event’s) online presence, not just for advertising exposure, but also for continuing/future SEO and up-to-the-minute communication. Her brain is in constant motion.

I wanted to introduce you to Birgit Pauli-Haack from Pauli Systems. She does a lot of internet/web training and web development for non-profits. But more to your interest, she is now working with a number of small businesses to educate them to the value of the internet and how to develop the most basic of web presences. Much of her work uses free programs and she is in tune with the concept of modules and basics for start-ups. From my perspective, she is probably one of the most forward thinking internet specialists in Naples.
Professional – Responsive – Easy to understand – Dependable. That’s how Pauli Systems treated us. Our project was important and our budget was limited. They took the time to understand our needs and limitations, and the website they designed met both. They used plain English to explain how websites work and how their plan for ours would represent our business. Their broad experience enabled them to suggest things we had not considered. That made the outcome even better than we hoped. We always felt our work was a priority because of their availability and dedication to getting the job done according to plan and on schedule.

Team Pauli Systems, LC has worked tirelessly implementing changes that had to be done on a deadline, maintained open and clear communication with me regarding thoughts and ideas, and kept me informed of their work schedule, so that I have never been left wondering when she, or her team, would be able to work on the site.
