The course basically answers the question 'how does an expert do digital marketing', which makes the course useful for everyone from beginners with no knowledge of the digital space through to experienced marketers. It covered lots of content quickly and there are so key take aways' from this course that will definitely improve my business

Katie Jane Sadgrove, Founder at Pretty Squares
The knowledge and personal experience Mark gave us was priceless. I felt 'data smarter' when I left, which at the start of the day I thought would be impossible. He catered to all levels of experience in the room, and I can't wait to apply some things to Pretty squares! The whole day was well organised by Zambesi and the group members were supportive and conversational.

I enjoyed the diversity of information available, and how it has completely turned my idea of marketing on its head
