Jason Capra, Board Account Director, AMV BBDO
Great guy and great teacher. I would highly recommend Jamie’s Pootlepress One Day Training Day course. It was comprehensive, informative and great value for money. I came away from the day having learnt invaluable skills taking me from a relative beginner to building my own website, all in one day. Thank you again Jamie.
Oscar Monteiro, IT Programme Office Manager, Hackney Borough Council
Recently completed Jamie’s WordPress 1 day course. It blew my mind – and I’ve been in IT all my professional life. I was amazed at what WordPress is capable of – within minutes we were creating websites! Jamie is an excellent teacher; his friendly approach and encyclopedic knowledge really helps his students learn.
John Davy – Managing Director, Jongleurs Comedy Clubs
Jamie is an absolute star in WordPress training, he is patient and a real expert. In one days training I had a fully functional beautiful WordPress site..Book him, he is a real WordPress pro
Steve White, Police Inspectors Rep, Police Federation
Pootlepress shows just how easy managing and building a website can now be. Manageable knowledge yet a huge amount of website power is the end result of the one day course. Money very well spent in my view giving me the ability to comprehensively manage a site but also giving me the tools and ability to build a new one from scratch.
Tally Wade, Editor, Western Horse UK
Pretty much everything I needed to know to get a professional, optimised and money earning web presence in less than six hours. I have spent thousands on websites in the past and had no idea that with WordPress, and some good coaching, I could be the master of my own online universe. Thanks Jamie.
Peter Cliffe, Quality Assurance Manager, Unilever PLC
Thank you for the WordPress course, it was excellent. I looked at various other companies offering similar courses, but I chose Pootlepress because of Jamie’s background and experience in the industry. My choice was well-founded as Jamie was able to add value beyond the basic training by recommending plug-ins based upon real experience, suggest themes and explain how to optimise Google ranking amongst other things. Excellent value, and great professionalism.
Gavin Barker, Information Officer, Southampton City Council
Like many people in local government, the Big Society agenda and the rapid rise of social media presented me with a pressing need to develop the skills and understanding to ride this new wave. WordPress kept coming up as a widely used tool for both blogging and website development. I felt that Jamie delivered exactly what I wanted; he didnt just show you what could be done; with his guidance you actually went ahead and built a basic website in a day. If you want an intensive, hands-on one day course that gives you the grounding to build a credible social networking website- this is it.
After learning about wordpress from a friend I decided to attend the Pootlepress 1 day wordpress course.
I walked into the workshop a complete novice 6 hours later I left confident that I could finally have a website!
I’m blown away by how simple it is to build and manage your own website using wordpress. A month later I completed a professional looking website that I can mantain myself without the expense, confusion and bugs.”
Kashmira Jhaveri, graphic designer, Ant Design Gifts
Being a graphic designer, I have the knowledge of design but only a basic knowledge on how to build a website. I have previously tested out various template based web packages and found them too restrictive.
When I heard that WordPress was a great platform in which to build websites, I got hold of some books and tried to teach myself. No success! So when I came across
Pootlepress I thought this is the best way in which to get to grips with teaching myself the workings of WordPress.
It was the best decision I made! In one day, I understood the framework on the workings of WordPress.
Jamie has a logical and systematic approach to teaching and this gave me the confidence to design
and create my website and blog. I now have a fully functioning site which I know I can develop as needs arise.
I would highly recommend Pootlepress – a cost effective way in which to set up your website quickly without
too much heartache!
Graham Ramage, Northedge Design
Coming from a traditional graphic design background I have dabbled with various HTML authoring packages but had never found one that would allow me to easily create websites that my clients could update for themselves.
After attending a 1 Day WordPress training courses with Jamie in Edinburgh I left with the knowledge of how to easily build and mange dynamic website utilising WordPress.
As my knowledge of WordPress and CSS increases I have been delighted with the quality of web sites I have been able to create.
Giles Brake, Head of Marketing, MSI Global Alliance (MSI)
Jamie’s crystal clear explanation of the nuts and bolts of WordPress provides novices and those who may have dabbled previously with the foundations and confidence they need to get a site up and running in no time. It really is possible to learn WordPress in a day, but you do need an expert with high level knowledge, and of course bags of patience. Jamie’s approach and course content makes him stand out in this field and leaves you chomping at the bit to get going with WordPress.
Pootlepress is great! Not only can you do a one day course in wordpress. Jamie, will also come to your house and set up a website in less than a day at a very reasonable price. They had found a necessary gap in the market to help start up companies and individuals realise their dreams with wordpress.
