What is my Unique Value Proposition (UVP)

Why choose to work with Donncha?

#.1 EXPERT ADVICE

I am an expert on all things startup. I have delivered training to, mentored and worked with hundreds of startups in Ireland over the last ten years. I have experience of almost every sector and industry.

As an independent and self employed consultant, I love learning. This includes reading books and blogs and from direct contact with clients. My areas of expertise now span all areas of startup. I have a working knowledge of almost everything and specific and expert knowledge of most commercial and business development areas. This is reflected in my creation of The Startup Business Planning Jigsaw in 2015 - blogpost all about that here!

Donncha created the 'Startup Business Planning Jigsaw' to put into neat order a range of concepts, tools, books and other lean startup resources to guide early stage entrepreneurs on their journey from concept to market launch.

#.2 TAILORED TO YOUR SITUATION

I like to share my experience and expertise with clients. I have recently realised (a client told me) that my forte is Strategy. This is looking at new scenarios where decisions need to be taken and providing options and a sounding board so that the promoter can chart a course of action knowing all they need to know.

#.3 RESULTS

The other element of my character is that I am an organisor. I like to get things done efficiently. From a delivery perspective, I feel that I am a good communicator both as a trainer and a deliverer of training. A big part of this is the ability to listen and understand the perspective of the other party. I like to get involved – to get stuck in.

My other website Startup Web Training.com has been created to promote my Website Creation (and Social Media Management) Training solutions.

 

I deliver WordPress training for small groups of business owners on behalf of the Enterprise Agencies and business networks.

I also offer one to one instruction to a small number of businesses each year on managing their WordPress sites -  address content marketing, social media, blogs and for business communication {as opposed to full web design to include eCommerce solutions - I know several providers who specialise in those areas}.
