Excellent Group Training provided to Tipperary Green Business Network
By Kate Walsh, TGBN Co-ordinator 2012-2015 - Donncha trained some members of Tipperary Green Business Network in setting up their websites and getting their business online using WordPress. The feedback from those attending the training programme (over 4 half days) was extremely positive. TGBN also used Donncha when we were redesigning the Tipperary Green Business Network website. He provided one to one training and responded promptly to follow-up questions I had with updating the site. For more see full testimonial. Continue Reading
Highly recommend WordPress Training Galway LEO
I attended LEO Galway’s WordPress course in Galway in October 2015 delivered by Donncha. I am still amazed at what I have learned in just two sessions. I wouldn’t describe myself as techy at all, but had done a few courses on web related topics before. This was the first course I did where I came away with a fully functioning live website. The course is completely ‘hands on’ . For anyone in business who wants to run their own website this is definitely the course for you. Thank you Donncha. Susan Connolly. Continue Reading
Superb WordPress Training Programme: Hanna Van Aelst, Barnabaun Basketry
Before this training, I had no knowledge of WordPress or any other knowledge about building a website. The only thing I knew was that I needed one and that I wanted to build it myself. Donncha steered me through every step of the way and explained everything very clearly. I could never have done this on my own and now have a lovely working website that is getting noticed by my customers. Continue Reading
Don’t let fear of the unknown stop you : WP Training Galway
I had no experience of websites and needed a website specifically to promote my services and events. Donncha made it sound ‘do-able’ and achievable and with his support, I found the confidence to make a start and keep going. I now feel confident to update and make changes which I had thought too difficult beforehand. I had been quoted a big figure for putting a website together so it saved me money to learn how to do it himself. I would recommend this course to everyone starting a business.
