“If you are thinking of making your own website, I highly recommend “Create a website from zero with WordPress” workshop. George is extraordinarily helpful and knowledgeable. He offered me several suggestions on alternative pathways, took the time to answer questions and discuss my concerns, and helped me figure out exactly what I need to do to make everything fall into place. It’s been a valuable experience for me. Thank you very much!!”

— Maria Frolova

“I did the weekend course last week and was really glad I did it. For me the last part of the course (a test of our skills) was really usefull. I would suggest to do something also the first day. So that what is explained can be applied and tested the same day. In our case we only did it the last day, I would suggest doing it the first day as well.”

— Lesley Wardenaar

“This workshop is very efficient and worth the price. Every single minute you learn something. You can ask questions, you can solve your own website problems and you meet George who doesn’t mind to help you in some urgent wordpress situations outside of the class. George is calm, patient and just nice to deal with. Thank you and see you again I suppose!”

After this workshop we felt that this truly was a very good choice to introduce us to WP and to give us a clear idea of its possibilities. George’s availability and concern has been profoundly appreciated.”
