Help Yourself At 6pm

If you’re in Kilkenny today at 6pm and fancy dropping into Langton’s on John Street, you might just be able to Help Yourself as Aidan (Event Ireland) and Keith (Bohanna Consulting) kick off a new series of monthly talks (presumably in Harry’s Bar inside Langtons) aimed at local businesses.

Help Yourself is a way for businesses in Kilkenny to get a gentle introduction to various bits of the internet without techie speak and in the company of like minded people. It is a network with a monthly talk/seminar and an online resource with additional backup for the talks.

The talks are being supported by the Kilkenny County Enterprise Board and each talk will feature a rotation between Aidan and Keith for the main topic of discussion, as well as a guest speaker for 20 minutes discussing their own personal internet-related experiences. Guest speaker for tonight is local businessman John Ellis of E-Insurance Ireland. John will be speaking on the success of his own website and lessons he has learned from it.

Tonight’s main topic for discussion will be domain names and email associated with those domains. (e.g. having your own .com or .ie but using an address or other free provider).

    Interesting. Pity I didn’t know about it – I might have popped down 🙂

    What else do you have planned?

    And why aren’t you hosting that site in Ireland???

    Questions, questions, questions.

    They should be running every month around the same time. Forgot you’re only a stones throw away. As far as I know the lads will be uploading the notes and presentations for the night to the blog as well.

    Hosting in Ireland? Had picked it up through LetsHost, never asked whether they were using hosting in Ireland. Had been using them for .ie’s I’m assuming then by your question that they don’t use Irish hosting?

    If you could give me a heads up before the next one I might make it 🙂

    As far as I’m aware, Keith is also the speaker for the next one but consider yourself on the “people to give a heads up to before the next one” list. 🙂
