March 4th 2013 For immediate release (first released 4th Feb) Web Infrastructure Masterclasses – a great CPD opportunity or Local IT expert to run IT Infrastructure Masterclasses in Nottingham Bieber fever reached Nottingham last weekend. When an entourage of the scale Bieber travels with comes to town there are certain expectations. In this modern age Internet connectivity is essential. Tom Geraghty is IT Manager at Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena.
Respected local IT expert Tom Geraghty is offering a unique training and development opportunity to businesses and SMEs in Nottingham this March. Tom will run a series of four IT Infrastructure Masterclasses to give people working in IT the chance to refresh their skills and knowledge within an industry-focused, workshop environment. Tom explains: ‘The sessions are suitable for non-IT workers who need to learn to “speak the language”. That might be a small business owner looking to communicate more effectively with his IT consultant, or a key client sent along by an IT manager who thinks they’ll benefit from an improved background knowledge of web infrastructure and how it all fits together.’ ‘You can attend any or all of the sessions,’ says Tom. ‘But you’ll get the most from your experience by coming to all four, so we’re offering the incentive of “buy one, get one free” – a saving of £150. I’m hoping to create a really positive and relaxed working environment for delegates, with a maximum of 6 people per class. The sessions will be short and sweet to avoid information overload, but there’ll be lots of time for questions and informal chat afterwards, when we decamp to a nearby bar.’ The Masterclasses will run on Monday evenings (6.00pm - 7.30pm), so people working full-time can attend; as IT Manager at Capital FM Arena, Tom is well aware how hard it is for busy IT professionals to find time for CPD! Each session will focus on a different area of web infrastructure, bringing delegates up to speed with latest industry developments as well as encouraging knowledge-sharing and debate. The four Masterclasses will cover: • Email and communications (11 March). Topics to include: different service providers and set-ups (e.g., using hosted email, managing it in-house) and
