Why should I put up testimonials from past participants?
-Testimonials are a great way to give other people a sense of feeling how participants coped in the workshop and what was learnt
-To help you make a decision whether you should come to a class
-To give you an idea on the seriousness of the content that is discussed by all
-For advocacy of Niall Mulrine who created and delivered these workshops.
Parents Feedback from the workshops
Dearbhail Mulhern from Mulhern Solicitors (www.MulhernSolicitors.ie) speaks of her role as a parent and what she did not know about and what she learned following this talk
“It made me more aware of possible “Danger Areas” and triggers to look for in children.I found the amount of children being bullied was very high” – Collette McGee, Parent
“A lot of parents don’t realise what the kids are looking up or doing”– Martina Carr, Parent
“Two 16 year old’s know more than I do and a nine year old” -Bernadette Mc Gettigan, Parent
“I think all schools should have this presentation” – Marie Kearney, Parent
“I recently attended a talk by Niall Mulrine on the internet and cyber bullying and as a parent, who thought they had
a pretty good idea of how to protect their children on the internet, I had my eyes opened.
I heard about network sites I hadn’t heard of before and how easy it is to dupe a child into situations that can and have been life threatening. As well as cyber bullying, other subjects were covered such as anti virus software and general computer safety. I found the talk very informative and delivered in a friendly and non patronizing manner. Niall also gave a talk to teenagers the night before which my 15 year old daughter attended and she described it as ‘brilliant’.
That in itself is a testimonial as to how Niall was able to interact with the young as well as the adults. In fact my daughter changed some of her Facebook settings as soon as she returned home from the talk.
I would certainly recommend that all adults and children who have anything to do with computers should attend a talk or seminar by Niall, They will not be disappointed and chances are they too will have their eyes and ears opened and maybe in learning about the dangers as well as the good things about the internet, a child’s life could be saved.” -Kathy McFadden, Parent
