What others are saying about my courses:

A fantastic resource, jam-packed with content

I wasn't sure what to expect with this but I'm genuinely impressed with the range of topics covered. There's everything from PR to social media and so on - what's really impressive is how well covered each topic area is. You don't just get an outline of what each is but you're given easy to follow demonstrations that help you to run through the various tools used. I also really love the handy tipsheets. I'm sure I'll be visiting this course again and again in time.
