“Since the workshop, I feel like I have a lot more confidence. The one-day course gave me a foundation of knowledge that I can always draw on, that I lacked before. The course exceeded my expectations of what I thought I’d get out of it, and has certainly helped my PR career.
I liked how the workshop was a small group. There was plenty of one-to-one training, and time for each participant to do practical challenges, or talk through situations where I needed further guidance.
The structure of the workshop certainly helped. We participated in a range of activities the morning, and by the afternoon we were able to come up with solutions to all of our media pitching challenges.
Our trainer Liton was fantastic. He has a wealth of experience across the PR spectrum and knows the industry inside out. He is also one of the best teachers I’ve had the privilege of learning from. I can still hear his voice in the back of my mind, telling me to confront my fears when I approach new journalists.
I would recommend this workshop to all PR professionals who want to improve their skills – it’s well worth the investment. I was so impressed, and have already signed up to another course.”
