“If you think you are good try and get some one else to be as good as you!”
Hello, my name is Mary Job. I found that quote recently on Achim’s Blog and it echoed my thoughts as to why i love to share my knowledge by writing, speaking and teaching. No doubt it is not easy to get someone as good as one is but it does bring a lot of joy and satisfaction to my soul knowing someone else is on their way to being the best and i am there to help in all ways i can. Asides from being a WordPress Community co-organizer, I have spoken at quite a number of events ranging from university seminars/workshops to business meetings, conferences, and secondary schools.
I am experienced and available to speak on the following topics:
- Community Building/Brand Awareness Development
- Personal Empowerment using Blogging as a tool
- Entrepreneurship and Information Technology
- ICT Learning and Development for total Newbies
- Communication and New Media Technologies
- Time Management using Technology
- WordPress and Open Source Technologies (How they work and thrive)
- Corporate and Personal Blogging
- Web designing & development using WordPress
- Education and Technology in Africa
- Business Model Canvas for Startups
I have some speaking engagements planned at the moment and details will always be posted on this page. Thank you for visiting.
Down here in Lagos, we had our 4th #WordPress meetup this year today, a total of 6 sessions covering WordPress 101, WordPress Security, SEO, Digital Marketing, Child Themes and Debugging WordPress Websites. An interesting thing I noticed is that approximately 70% of attendees are first timers who wish they weren’t hearing about the community for the first time. So if you are reading this you now know WordPress has a community in Nigeria. Visit https://make.wordpress.org or https://www.wpnigeria.org to learn more and join the community.
We will be holding our second meetup of the year on the 27th of May. We are going to show you live how to build multiple WordPress sites from scratch. We will register a fresh domain right in front of you and you will watch us mold it into ANY of the above ideas. At the end of this workshop, you should be able to register your domain name, own a self-hosted WordPress site and get it running all by yourself with little or no assistance from anyone, but Google.
This was a WordPress help-desk meetup and members brought their Personal Computer and their WordPress Problems & Questions. Event was totally FREE plus refreshments and WP Freebies, to become a sponsor or volunteer, please click here to send me a message.
