OnAPage is pleased to announce both the launch of the company and it's 10 day series of Calgary's only hands-on workshops where attendees learn web, mobile and social media skills by working on their own business.
OnAPage is a new company founded by Stephen King, Cale White and Paula Blackmore-White. They recognized that there is a knowledge gap in businesses and professionals who know that in order to thrive in the information age they need an online presence, but have no idea where to start to create an effective strategy.
“In my consulting with Stephdokin.com and TCELab.com, I’ve run into thousands of people who don’t have the necessary skills and tools to compete locally, regionally or globally in the new connected world, and I thought this type of workshop series would be a great contribution to our Calgary technology community,” says Host Educator, Stephen King. “What got you to today will not get you to tomorrow. For many people, it’s no longer a case of who moved the cheese. Now, it’s who moved the maze?”
Different from traditional seminars where the lecture is long forgotten or the notes are in the garbage before the participants actually get anything done back at their business, OnAPage workshops focus on learning, strategy AND hands-on doing. With the philosophy of “get ‘er done”, participants may leave with notes but they absolutely will leave with it DONE. No homework or take home bullet points here, just built websites, social media strategies created and implemented, and cloud resources set up and actually being used.
“Is it an intense day? Absolutely. But, you learned how to use Microsoft Word once, so there’s hope!” continues President, Cale White. “We’re lucky to have Stephen King, local internet entrepreneur and builder of companies as the host educator of OnAPage -- he brings a ‘been there, done that’ edge to our approach that will have you stepping gently into the 24/7, always-on, connected world of 2013.”
The workshops run from March 4 through to April 4, and are available individually, as multi-days, or a complete 10 day series. Pricing for a single day is $595, with 15% early bird discounts available prior to Valentine’s Day February 14, 2013. For people attending all 10 workshop days, discounts of up to 50% are available. Registration is available directly on http://www.onapage.com or by calling 1-855-604-5678.
OnAPage is pleased to partner with Headspace for it’s workshop series, the funky meeting space in the Karo Design building off the new west LRT line.
