What people say
I felt the course and the course leader was spot on for what we needed, and the great thing is the team have actually put in place some of the learning - right from the day after - and they continue to discuss it among themselves too.
A really enlightening and stimulating overview for marketeers embarking on a content marketing strategy. Full of clear, intelligent advice delivered by an inspirational industry leader. Highly recommended!
The content marketing course was well worth the time out of the office. The content and structure was exactly what I was hoping for and was presented well.
As someone very new to Content Marketing, I found this course very interesting and full of useful tools to apply. Thanks.
While it's easy to assume that content planning and strategy comes as second nature in the day to day workplace, this course was great for really distilling why we do what we do, the thinking that should be behind every piece of content, and how to create content for a specific, tangible reason. I left with plenty of food for thought and a number of action points to discuss with stakeholders back at work.

Definitely recommend this course to anyone looking to venture into, or improve, their approach to Content marketing
