The iPhoneCoach was created after its founder, Patrick Dockhorn, identified that there was very little out there in the way of quality training & education for organisations and individuals interested in getting started with or advancing their knowledge in iPhone and iPad app development.

At the iPhoneCoach we believe that aquiring new skills is essential in today's fast-paced society; our objective is not only to provide you with the tools, processes and knowledge required to successfully build your own apps - we want to make your learning an enjoyable experience - we all learn best if we have fun doing it !

Patrick Dockhorn


Patrick is a veteran software engineer and Online Entrepreneur; before starting iPhoneCoach, Patrick had already founded jTribe, a boutique Melbourne-based agency focused on iPhone and Android app development, where he helped deliver a multitude of apps, many of which gained significant attention by being featured or even named App of the Week by Apple.

Patrick lives in Sydney with his wife Jennifer, his children Kay and JJ, and their two dogs, Chester & Lily. He rides his bicycle to work (and occasionally around Lake Taupo), plays soccer, and kindles a lot.

Jenny Climas-Dockhorn


Jenny is looking after the day to day operations of the five business units within KJEW Investments; she is the main customer liaison and organises all training and conference events.

In her free time Jenny plays Tennis, rides the bicycle and does intermediate ski runs.
