Media Training

 Probably the best workshop I have been on in a long time. Good pace, focused and with increasing challenge throughout the day.


 Over the years I have attended a number of media training events, but yours was definitely in a class of its own ... highly relevant ... also playful and inventive, which made the day good fun ... encouragement and caution were given in appropriate measure.
