Build a website in 1 day!
Thu 20 October 2016, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
Our one day website workshop transforms beginners into savvy users with a shiny new online presence in a single day
Over the course of the workshop you'll be provided with all that you need to create a professional looking WordPress website - the tools, the skills, the knowledge - and will also be shown how to effectively use your website to manage your content.
Kimberley Leary has more than a decade's worth of experience with WordPress and today happily shares her knowledge and expertise with those who tap into the potential of her class.
On the day of the workshop you’ll be building your very own homepage right alongside Kimberley - and you’ll learn how to style it to your exact preferences. The result of which will be a freshly launched website, branded to perfectly reflect your business.
Kimberley will be sharing the little known secrets as to how you can drive traffic to your website, whilst providing tips, tricks and ideas for the future so you can make the most of your new WordPress website.
The course boasts a maximum number of four attendees - for one-on-one interaction and tailored guidance when and where you need it. The workshop will take place in our comfortable meeting room, with free tea, coffee and lunch all included in the price (as well as a mountain of biscuits – otherwise known as essential brain food!).
The session has been designed to be interactive from start to finish and Kimberley’s accessible way of teaching, along with her patience and approachability, means that each and every delegate will be entering the workshop a beginner, and leaving as a WordPress supernerd.
