For those of you who are visiting and don’t know me my name is Niall O’Connor. Still in my twenties for a little while longer I was born bred and am still currently based in Co. Wicklow Ireland.
What I do now
My day job is in the Event Management & Team Building Business. I am currently a director of Dynamic Events and OffRoadDriving.ie. Dynamic Events primarily provide corporate entertainment, team building and country pursuits to the corporate world. OffRoadDriving.ie provide 4×4 Off Road Experiences to the general public on an individual and group basis.
What I did then
Having completed a BSc in Construction Economics & Management (Quantity Surveying) I graduated in 2009 with a degree that gave me little prospect of employment in the construction industry for obvious reasons. I worked as a managing surveyor for 6 months following my studies but the inevitable happened and the work dried up. Being out of work for a short period of time I joined Dynamic Events in 2010 and haven’t looked back since.
What I do on the side
In 2009 I developed a interest in the online world when I was tasked with building a website for my local golf club (Blessington Lakes Golf Club) whom I am heavily involved with and captained in 2012 becoming the youngest captain of a golf club in the country at age 25.
Having no experience with web design or anything online I took it on as a hobby. That is when I first heard of WordPress and thanks to the massive online community I managed to teach myself the basics and am now able to build and implement fully functional websites. I have used this skill to build many websites for companies in the locality who were finding it difficult and expensive to get their businesses online.
Following on from building websites using the wordpress platform I developed an interest in online marketing especially through the use of social media primarily Facebook and Google Adwords. Having been self thought in many things online I took the plunge to rubber stamp these skills by taking on a 1 year Postgraduate Diploma in Digital Marketing in 2012. Then more recently I completed a FETAC level 5 course in Graphic Design and am currently studying for a degree in Graphic Design at the Dublin Istitute of Design.
I set up this site up so I can share any of the knowledge I have gained over the past few years with the world. The content will contain general topics around Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, WordPress and all things to do with the digital world in general. I also want to use this site to engage with like minded people so I can further improve my knowledge.
Although content will contain digital know how as the main content I will also write about some of my other interests.
