Announcing the new Virtual Classroom

You run a business, you love your business but sometimes the tech drives you insane.  Maybe you have no idea what tools are available or you simply have no time to learn how to use it.  Let me be your tour guide.  I can show you all the best places to go and how to get the most out of them.  Save time, know you have the right tool and learn quickly how to use it.

With new courses every month, there is something for everyone and you can always purchase the replay!

How does that work?

The class will be held on Zoom, so if you haven’t used it before you will need to install the app on your phone, tablet or computer to join the class.  The class will be a combination of Fiona talking to the camera and sharing on the screen.  You will have the option to appear on the screen also and to ask questions by typing them in or asking “out loud”.  The class will last 45 minutes to an hour and may run over if lots of people have questions.  The class will be videoed and this will be available so you can still learn even if you are unable to attend the live class.  This also gives you the chance to recap what you learned.

Who is this for?

Anyone who wants to learn the skills being taught.

Classes are often around learning to use apps/software/websites that a business owner might need.  They may also focus on other business skills.  They are ideal for solopreneurs but also can be useful for people who work for companies, charities or are involved with voluntary groups.  Have a look down the list of topics and sign up for whatever interests you.

What is the cost?

The classes are £20

For that you can attend the live class at the date and time and/or watch the video replay at a time that suits you.  The replay is available for two months following your purchase.

Imagine learning the skills you need, without you having to travel.  Learn from the comfort of your own home, office, car or wherever suits you.  If you cannot manage to the live class or even if you can, the video will be available to you to catch up, recap or go over the things you learned, while you put it all into action.

Simply photograph your paper receipts when you get them and then you no longer need to keep them!

HMRC are happy with electronic copies.
