Blast into CyberSpace!

Dr. Jeanette Cates, noted technology expert, will show small business owners, consultants, speakers, and other professionals how to design an internet presence in an afternoon on September 11 at the Sheraton Clayton Plaza.

"One of the biggest mistakes business owners make is to put up a website without appropriate planning, " says Dr. Cates. "This lack of planning results in a website that doesn't generate business. This is an expensive and unnecessary lesson."

Dr. Cates will lead business owners through the three decisions only they can make about their website and the process for deciding who, when and how the website will be created and maintained. Participants who preregister will be able to complete several email lessons prior to the live workshop.

"Understanding the importance of the decisions needed for a successful internet presence is not easy. There is a lot to absorb. By reviewing some of that content before the live workshop, you have time to gather the necessary information and complete the homework at your own pace. This is part of the new learning model we are using in business and training," said Dr. Cates.

The workshop will be held Saturday, September 11, at the Sheraton Clayton Plaza, from 1 to 5pm. Details and registration is available at TechTamers.com/blastoff and toll-free at 1-877-522-8371.

Dr. Cates, known as The Technology Tamer™, is CEO of TechTamers, an Austin, Texas-based training and consulting firm. TechTamers works with organizations who want to use their technology more profitably and with professionals who want to reduce their technology learning curve. Dr. Cates is the author of Customer Service Online and Taming Technology. Over the past 18 years she has helped thousands of people coast to coast learn to "make friends AND PROFIT with technology." Dr. Cates is a member of the National Speakers Association, Women in Technology, and is listed in Who's Who of American Women.
