  10. 10. Former Participant Feedback I took part in a 2 day course delivered on behalf of Galway Local Enterprise Office on how to set up your own website with WordPress. The training was comprehensive and practical as we had to set up our own website (next slide) from scratch with WordPress. Donncha guided us through each step with great detail and thorough explanation. I have since been able to maintain my website to a good standard without any need for further training. Donncha was very approachable and accommodating as an instructor and his knowledge was thorough. 10

  12. 12. Another former participant says: • 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 • … launching soon – a website (in English) for anyone looking to book a holiday in Portugal. Lots of information & travel tips! Designed by Limerick company Darvu - Susan will be updating! 12
  13. 13. Testimonial from a 3rd former participant 13 • Last year, I attended LEO Galway’s WordPress course delivered by Donncha. I had no experience of websites and needed a website specifically for 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. For those who delegate the task to someone else - its important to retain control and responsibility over our websites and fear of the unknown often stops us. • Fiona Finn, Parent Mentor •
