Share IT – Don’t Hoard IT – Free IT Training for Small Business

March 16, 2007

No – that’s not a typo!  It’s free, and it’s on Saturday 24th March in University College Cork.  What’s more, it’s the first of hopefully many more such events to be held at various locations around the country.

Of course we all know that there’s no such thing as a free lunch, and ShareIT is  no exception:

Lunch: (This is where you bring your ham and cheese roll and your thermos flask and club milk.)

I am learning that there is an awful lot of activity which goes on in the world of business for which no money changes hands.  But, while it is therefore technically “free” that is not to say that it is not valuable.
