Over 600 business owners and professionals have now boosted their businesses with our help. Here’s what just a couple of them had to say...

"Since participating in the course, I have seen a 30% increase in sales. This has to be down to some of the new skills I gained, while the networking and support side from the people that I met on the course has been exceptional."

Julie Warters, owner of Time For Media

"The course was really intense, but I took so much away from it and learnt a lot. When I got home after completing the course, I put my new-found skills to the test and used four new social media resources."

Andrew Calder, co-owner of Calder's Kitchen
