Trainee Feedback

“Just had a great two hour training session with Kerry and another learner. I dread Social Media training — usually, I come away with my head exploding with information overload. But Kerry took us through everything we’d asked for, at our pace. She reassured me I was on the right lines already, whilst giving me ideas of how to improve things. Kerry is warm and amusing — fun to work with, and effective.”
