What participants have to say:
“I thoroughly enjoyed your PR workshop. It was one of the most practical and valuable courses I have attended. I was inspired by your positive approach to business and communication. Thank you!”
“Catriona certainly knows her stuff and delivered on every objective offered in the course outline. The material presented and the depth of knowledge she displayed is priceless. I cannot recommend this course highly enough to anyone that wants to maximise their publicity. The skills I was taught during the one day workshop were immediately put in place the second I got back into the office and have already provided results. If you think PR is just a about sending Press Releases, then you need to book into this course!” Hayley Dean
“I found the workshop an invaluable introduction to PR and communication. The workbook provided participants with practical information and supporting examples – basically a comprehensive “how to” guide. Catriona shared an absolute wealth of information, and created an atmosphere where participation was welcomed and encouraged. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to improve their communication skills, regardless of your occupation”. Honey Muir
“My PR skills had been out of practice for a few years so I was looking to refresh them and bring them up to date. The PR workshop was one of the most practical and invaluable courses that I’ve participated in for some time. Catriona’s wealth of knowledge and experience combined with her lively and interactive presentation, meant that I was able to walk away with an outline of my PR plan and the tools to implement into the business almost immediately. I highly recommend this workshop.” Victoria Sharp
