What our students are saying

Our pilot class included students from corporations, associations, agencies, and suppliers. Here's what our students are saying about the class:

"Great class today Liz! I appreciated that you provided real like examples for the different components of digital marketing. That is helpful to bring all of what we learn together and better understand how it is applied."

"Great class - and perfect for where I am in my career."

"I just watched the past two weeks and I am LOVING the content! "

"Very thought provoking and spot on for the projects I’m currently working on."

"The first class exceeded all my expectations. Not only was the content excellent, but your bubbly personality and whit made it so enjoyable. As you know, I’ve been at [my company] for a long time and feel I’ve become complacent. I think this course was a wakeup call. There is so much I don’t know even though I’ve been in the industry for so long. I’ve been in a bubble. There is an entire industry out there and for the first time in a long time, I’m feeling energized and excited to learn more about it. The first lesson was 2 thumbs up and looking forward to the others."
