Annmarie is a very competent lecturer with a wide knowledge of the subject. The fact that she has worked for such a variety of brands and organisations means that her approach is grounded in real-world experience, rather than just academia.

Before taking the course, I had little knowledge of Facebook Ads and felt the terminology around the subject would confuse me. However Annmarie Hanlon, our trainer on the day made the subject light and easy to understand. I really enjoyed the day and learnt a lot more than just Facebook Advertising. I would recommend it anyone!

Having just started using Facebook within our business, we had been testing and promoting using our own organic knowledge. This course really helped fill gaps and offered great advice for us to grow further - highly recommended!

This course covered a broad range of topics for Facebook business users, from setting up a page, to advertising. Recommended!

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It has given me a greater understanding of the possibilities of Facebook as not just another social media channel, but a great marketing opportunity for organisations to use. The style and pace of the course was just right for the day, very good.

The course has given me many new ideas as to how we can use the platform to engage our customers and how we can develop our existing plans.
