+ Delegate feedback

"I gained a number of practical tools during the course; many of these I can start using straight away, while others are good food for thought as I plan new content projects (specifically a massive overhaul of the university's course catalogue online). I'll be recommending it to colleagues.""  Senior Content Officer, University of Reading

"The course was excellent. I learnt new ways to create content with subject experts and gained an understanding of the overlap between users’ and an organisation's objectives.” Enterprise Communications Assistant, Imperial College London
