I was very happy with the training and with the extra advice your team have been able to provide me after the training session ended (I had some problems which couldn't be resolved during the training itself due to time constraints.)

Really interesting course which covered a lot of aspects of Facebook! I thought I knew a lot about Facebook but this course made me realise how much more there is to it! Emma Horton was a brilliant trainer and kept me engaged and interested throughout the whole course. I'd highly recommend!
