What people say
It was just great and I am happy to take the knowledge from the course to apply for my future in the branch of programmatic advertising
The course was a great introduction to programmatic, I would highly recommend!
An excellent way to gain a comprehensive overview of Programmatic; its origin, development, and how to capitalise on its role in the media landscape.
Great venue, great teacher, lovely staff and fantastic variety of hot/cold food and drinks. Training can be boring but this is anything but!
The course was excellent, it was perhaps even one of the most useful courses that I've been on in a while. I learnt so much that I can take away and action in my role. The space was great too - unlimited sweets are always great!
