The other, other, other project of mine. After my second BarCamp I started to think that there were so many people there asking the same questions that were asked at the first BarCamp. Whatever is happening between the Enterprise Boards, and EI and other groups and blogs there appears to be a slight knowledge gap of some sort. To fill that gap I’m helping to organise training sessions run via the BusinessAdvisory.ie website called Share IT (name may change if it is already in use).
The idea is that trainers will train startup people, small companies and individuals in areas the trainers have experience in and which is of benefit to the people. All training is free, the trainers volunteer their time to do an hours training and pay their own expenses to get there. More details on this whole idea here.
The first training day will take place in Cork on March 24th in UCC. You have to apply to attend this as spaces are limited. See more on the BusinessAdvisory.ie website. Yes, don’t worry Dublin people, there’ll be one there in April sometime. Hopefully these will start going around the country.
Trainers will always be required so if you are willing to give an hours training in areas that startups need some training in, then leave a note over on the site.
The Business Advisory project itself stems from this idea here and hopefully the “advisory board” will start to take shape during the summer.
Big thanks to Walter, Jenny, Krishna, Conor, Laurence, Richard and Donagh for giving up their saturday and traveling to this.
Also thanks to TJ, Piaras and Joe who are volunteering to do sessions at the Dublin Share IT training day.
