I deliver training for the Getting Irish Business Online initiative. This is a fantastic programme which is supported nationally by Google, Blacknight Solutions and the Enterprise Boards. Here are the slides the I use on the day:

Since 2010, I have delivered over 30 workshops for the Enterprise Boards in Limerick City, North Tipperary and Clare. The feedback from participants is (honestly!) mostly positive. The objectives of the programme are definitely met:

This workshop is designed to provide small business owners with the knowledge to use the Blacknight Website Builder to create your own website and be able to update it as often as you want. We will also introduce Search Engine Optimisation within the tool which facilitates your website to be found by web users.

For upcoming dates check out our Upcoming Training Workshops section – please note that all bookings are administered by the Local Enterprise Offices. This page is for informaton purposes only.
