The course was great, instructor was great. The aircon in the venue was too hot and affected my concentration.
(4.30 out of 5) Emily H [ 18 June, 2018 ]
Extremely useful information and put into practice to improve memorability. I am looking forward to going back to work to implement the info.
(4.80 out of 5) Colin V [ 18 June, 2018 ]
Really enjoyed the course, lot to take in, just hope I've locked a lot of it in. John goes a bit fast for me but I'm a slow learner. That said, he's more than happy to explain or slow down if he sees you're struggling. I'd love to do a real website from start to finish with John!

Solid introduction and a good starting point with this program. Enough info / content to get started at work - good practical info.
