Hello, I’m Lorna Sixsmith. I’m based in Carlow in South-East Ireland. I’ve been blogging and using other social media platforms since 2007 and I’ve been teaching businesses how to use social media for four years now.
I offer content creation services (I can write your website and blog content for you), social media training for businesses at all stages and focused support for business start ups. If you are struggling with time for writing your blog posts, don’t know your pin from your tweet, wish to create a focused social media strategy or just don’t know where to start with social media, I can help. I offer group and one-to-one tailored training and I promise I speak plain English with very little jargon.
If you’re looking for a social media speaker for a conference or event, do get in touch. Recent presentations and talks include presenting at the National Women’s Enterprise Day, being a panelist at the Carlow Business Picnic and speaking at a Farmers in Film conference in the UK. I’m also an occasional panelist on TV3′s Midday although I don’t chat much about social media there!
I’ve co-founded the KLCK Bloggers Network and Blog Awards Ireland, both of which focus on helping people improve their blogs and other social media usage. We Teach Social is our sister website (in association with Amanda of Spiderworking) where we teach social media courses online.
I’m married to a dairy farmer and have written a non-fiction humourous book entitled ‘”Would You Marry a Farmer?” which was inspired by my most popular post on my personal blog Irish Farmerette. My first co-written social media book is entitled 365 Social Media Tips. Previous employment and businesses include secondary school teaching, lecturing at third level in Media Studies, working as an interior designer,running my own e-commerce store and then social media teaching. I love working with small and medium businesses, tailoring the training to their needs so they get the most out of it.
