I took part in the Search Engine Marketing with Google Display Network course and was taught by Linda. Her experience in Singapore marketing has shown me a different way of approach that I can apply on my own business. Most importantly, I find it more relevant to my work. Gained so much from it. She is also very friendly and willing to share her expertise even though it is not course related. Will definitely recommend my friends and family to attend her course.

Attended their Google PPC course for the first time. Our trainer is Fern Deng, she is experienced and knowledgeable. She showed us live examples by pointing out what is good and bad about the ads and landing page. She is friendly and approachable. She can speak well, loud and clear. Google PPC is more on digital skill which may be dull. But, she made the whole class interesting, smooth and easy to follow.

Went for a SEO Basic Techniques course and trainer Eugene was superb. He gave us not only an overview but practical examples of how we could implement SEO optimisation on our business websites and I am so eager to start implementing it now to boost the sites that I oversee for my marketing projects. Having good content is not enough if SEO isn't properly set up, and optimising our SEO can actually boost a brand's traffic and marketing objectives. I used to just focus on social media but now I find that I am equipped to help my clients with SEO. I'm glad I came for this course.
