We work with WordPress because it is a fantastic content management system (CMS). It provides normal people like you with the freedom to manage your website.
It is most of these things and much more!

I found the WordPress in a day course engaging and informative. I feel Ben presented well and I now have the confidence to build a web page on my own and administer it myself. A huge amount of content was covered and I would recommend it to anyone looking to find their way around WordPress.
Refreshing my knowledge with WordPress has never been so enjoyable.
Being shown all the back end skills by a professional who definitely knows what he was talking about (love your work Ben) really helped me to get back into the swing of running a website.
Informative and easy to keep pace with, I would definitely recommend this course to my colleagues.
I would like to Thank Ben and the superb team at Matter Solutions for their friendly guidance and excellent training! I attended the WordPress Training Session on Monday 29th January, knowing little about its features and capabilities. Wanting to learn the skills to manage, post and implement changes to a WordPress website this session was packed full of helpful tips, tricks and hands on training and expert guidance. During the session, Ben not only taught us the in’s and out’s of the WordPress Dashboard and its features such as Widgets, Plugins and more! But also gave us the opportunity to work on and test our skills out on our very own website which was a great way of experiencing working on the WordPress platform whilst having an expert in the room. I would recommend this course to anyone seeking some invaluable WordPress training and guidance! Thanks guys!
To decision makers considering buying this course for their staff, I would say that it’s money well spent. We flew three staff from Gladstone to Brisbane for one day of training, flying home, with the knowledge gained we knew it was money well spent. It was informative, practical and perfect for my business, I’d highly recommend it.
Ben was great. He has a very warm approach to teaching and was very patient.
Excellent content and very easy to understand. I got a great deal out of it.
An excellent seminar.
I was impressed that Ben took the course himself as I imagine he is a busy man!
Can’t praise the experience enough. Thanks guys. I have the confidence to actually make the changes needed in our website.
