What our clients say:
‘I thoroughly enjoyed the day. The studio setting in Windmill Lane was perfect. The course brought together a very friendly, creative group of people, with different levels of skill and experience. Teaching was well paced and easy to follow for someone like myself with very rudimentary technical skills. I learned exactly what I needed to begin producing my own podcasts and I was introduced to a range of equipment to get me started.’
Dr. Tony Bates, Psychologist (Podcasting 101 Workshop)
‘I would highly recommend the ‘Podcasting 101 Workshop’ to anyone with an interest in creating and producing high quality podcasts. The training and resources received were excellent, and having the opportunity to share information and ideas with participants from a wide variety of professional backgrounds really enriched the experience. Thanks to Helen, John and Pearse for running a very professional and inspiring workshop!’
