Rave Reviews:

Fantastic WordPress workshop with an amazing instructor!! I can’t believe Phyllis was able to cover so much content in a day, but she did it. Not only that, but she answered everyone’s questions and we all received personal attention. I highly recommend this workshop for anyone that wants to learn about WordPress – you will NOT be sorry!! 5 Stars!!
Denise Carbon, Special Advantage
“Five stars for this workshop! Phyllis is an excellent instructor and very experienced with all aspects of WordPress. I appreciated the thoroughness of her lesson plan, her relaxed but focused teaching style, and the handouts she provided. Whether you’re a beginner or more experienced, you’ll come away with increased knowledge and confidence to move forward with building and maintaining your WordPress site.”
Jeanne Schreiber
“OMG what a great workshop. I am NOT at all tech savvy. Plus I arrived late due to unexpected circumstances. Phyllis was a patient and thorough teacher. I walked away ready to complete and launch my website. She had great tips and hands on, LIVE experience.”
“Phyllis did a wonderful job at demystifying Word Press. She also gave us great SEO tips and tricks. I promise to update my blog more than once a year!”
Cynthia Beck, CCHT
“This workshop is a great way to learn about WordPress. Phyllis is a very good instructor and certainly knows her material. I learned many valuable tools I can apply to my website.”
Laura Erkeneff, Insights to Leadership
“Phyllis Garland’s ‘Learn WordPress in a Day’ class was excellent. I am not a technologically savvy person, but I came away from the class feeling that I could do it – start creating posts and pages for my website. Phyllis took the intimidation and mystery out of setting up my own website and getting it optimized for Google and the search engines. I would, highly recommend this class. Thanks again!”
“Phyllis Garland’s teaching demeanor is excellent as she interactively surveys the needs of the group to her instructional delivery! In particular Phyllis made sure to encourage us to email her with our continuing questions as we move forward in our WordPress practice.”
Susan Kaenig
“The workshop was fantastic! I walked into the class not knowing a thing about WordPress or setting up a website. I left not only knowing how to set up a site, but how to begin manipulating content and website security. Phyllis stands behind her teaching by allowing continued email contact beyond the class. It was a truly valuable day.”
Cathy Ritter, Tom Boy Tools
“Excellent! I would give it 10 Stars, but I can only give it a 5! If you’re wanting to learn WordPress this is the class for you! Phyllis was an excellent instructor! I learned a lot and came away feeling that I can actually do something in WordPress.”
“‘WordPress in a Day’ provided me with huge benefit. Phyllis somehow managed to respond to individual needs, while at the same time, delivering a thorough overview of what it takes to build a website. I knew a bit about WordPress before, but feel extremely confident AFTER this very well organized and thoughtfully delivered training. Highly recommended.”
Robin Fletcher, Sell Like a Goddess
“That was great! I walked out with a lot knowledge and a WordPress website in shape! Thanks very much Phyllis!”
