The advanced adwords course was perfectly paced and full of valuable information. The learning environment was focused, allowing us to apply what we were being taught in real time to our adwords accounts.

A really well structured course - confirmed the basics and then developed advanced practices to help future proof our knowledge of Google AdWords.

A well organised course, the trainer had a wealth of knowledge and experience and the venue and catering was fantastic.

This course lived up to my every expectation, it was terrific. If you're thinking of attending DON'T - I don't want you to know more than I discovered!

This the first AdWords course I've attended it has managed to increase my skills way beyond my current level. Daniel is supremely knowledgeable and makes even complex subjects easily understandable.
