SOME SAMPLE COMMENTS FROM PAST DELEGATES

"Was very informative and really engaging with the content that we went through. It really gave me the opportunity to apply the training to my everyday work and assess how I could solve the problems that I am currently facing."
Web Designer, Human Appeal

"Andy was knowledgeable and structured the day very well. He was also honest about the limitations of GWD, as well as the possibilities. I learnt a lot about the smaller details of GWD, which will allow me to create much richer banner ads."
Senior Digital Designer, WPG

"Great training day. The instructor ran through the software in good detail but without over complicating things, and I felt confident at the point of creating my own banner that I had absorbed everything we covered during the day."
Web Designer, Dorling Kindersley

"Andy was great. There was only two of us on the course, myself and another colleague. We were able to ask as many questions as we liked. Andy was also happy to talk around things we would use in our day to day jobs so we could put them in to practice. I liked how thorough and engaging the course was."
Designer, Home Marketing

"Andy was so cooperative and answered questions related yet beyond the course outline."
Graphic Designer, Kings Academy

"The course allows you to do things that look very good and professional without too much hassle or understanding, building on from my current knowledge"
Typesetter, Community Publications

"The experience i had on this course has been great and I have learnt so much more than expected. I like the fact Andy explained everything first, then let us have a go, then any problems he would help and go through again and again until we got it!"
