about the Website Workshops…
Kathy is the most patient person ever. I am a complete technophobe and had to start right from scratch as I had absolutely no website knowledge before the course. Kathy takes you through everything and is on hand to answer any questions in her group. I now have a website that I am proud of and in control of and can change things when I want or need to. I highly recommend this website workshop course.
I cannot recommend Kathy enough! She is very passionate about her website workshops and this passion certainly comes through in the amount of time and effort has put into building this course to help you be able to build your website. She is full of knowledge and explains everything so clearly. The workshop course was brilliant, I have achieved so much and feel very confident in my own abilities to run my website. Even if you’re not sure if a website is right for you speak to Kathy!
Kathy has been amazingly supportive in helping me create my website through her workshops. She has a real eye and helping you to get your website looking top-notch. Quick to respond to questions etc.
If you run a business and you’re looking to build your brand in a cost effective and efficient way then Kathy is your woman. She’s so knowledgeable about web building and SEO and very good at empowering you to do things for yourself with her guidance and support. I’d never have been able to launch my website without her. She gives you so many tools, oodles of confidence and lots of guidance. I’d definitely recommend her.
I did the website workshop course with Kathy and was really happy with her training. Kathy explained everything very clearly, in a way that someone who doesn’t have experience in web design ( such as myself) can understand. I was able to use the skills I’d learnt to quickly get our website up and running and also feel confident in updating information on the finished site.
As a self-employed artist and not the most technical of people, I found building my website with Kathy invaluable. Her knowledge is second to none and her patience and support, have been much appreciated, I recommend her highly.
The Website Workshops is an absolute gift for small business owners and people who want a website without spending massive amounts of time and money learning how to do it. The website framework is all built for you, which gave me confidence that I have a robust site. The online training is a fantastic resource and I have referred back to it time and again – it’s like having a Kathy sitting next to you guiding you through it. The content is professionally done and also cuts through to what you need to do and how to do it. I highly recommend the website workshops to anyone who wants all the gain without the pain.
