"Great at keeping things simply and didn't run things through too quickly or too slow! Really knowledgable and helped with any questions we had."



"Approachable trainer, nice environment"



"Mr. Simo was so kind and helpful , I had lots of question about Photoshop and he answered all."



"The trainer was excellent, made sure that we understood every single exercise over the two days."



"Well above expectation. Simo is a fantastic trainer, extremely knowledgeable and approachable. He kept a good pace throughout. Facilities were super - feeling very spoilt! "



"Really good at preparing example projects beforehand, for us to practise on and copy. It gives us a chance to actually put what we learn to use - most of the time you're not really able to ingrain something into memory until you practise it yourself after hearing about it, so it was hugely beneficial to have multiple types of projects, each focussing on a specific skill, or combination or skills."



"Very attentive tutor. Small class group meaning Simon could tailor the content to each of us. Great lunch, selection of teas & coffee. Lovely place!"



"Everything. Everyone was incredibly friendly from the ladies on registration to of course Simo who was brilliant with everyone in the class. Everyone at media training was polite and helpful. The course was a perfect pace and Simo also answered a whole host of questions that we all had on the fly so we got to learn even more than planned. I feel so confident after just this beginner course. Thanks!"



"Everyone was really friendly and the trainer was incredibly knowledgeable, effective and supportive. Thank you very much."



"Almost everything! I found Simo engaging and knowledgeable, the sample images and course content were pertinent and well organised, and I appreciated the small group size. Plus the lunch and the biscuits!"



"Simo was brilliant - amazed at how much i learnt in two days. Pace was perfect. We had a lot of additional questions and things we wanted to learn and Simo was very accommodating, made sure we got the most out of the day. Everyone else was extremely friendly and helpful and were always making sure everyone was comfortable and everything running smoothly. Would highly recommend to colleagues and I'm sure I'll be back. Thanks "



"Simo was very knowledgable and it was a great course"



"Great training, good speed and very helpful examples. "



"Everybody was really friendly, and Peter was super patient and clear."



"Everything! Really good day. Trainer was excellent"



"Overall a great experience"



"Literally everything. The last two days have been the best work training programme that I have so far experienced. Everything from the thoughtful, relevant and focused layout of the course, to the friendly and helpful staff, the excellent catering and the pleasant and stimulating environment, this has set a new standard for training that I think won't be surpassed for a long time. I have learned so much and I feel like I'm going to be twice as useful when I get back to work. Really superb."



"Simo was incredibly knowledgeable and a great teacher - THANK YOU! "



"Everything-I was very impressed with the friendliness of Simo, the staff, and especially the lunch! "

"Covering everything - very thorough and great individual support!"



"Everything runs like a well oiled machine!"



"The whole course was very efficiently run, with friendly staff and knowledgeable teachers! Loved the small class of 4, as I was initially concerned that there would be lots of people and not time for questions - Simo was fab."



"Really a wonderful environment to learn in. Comfortable, friendly, great staff ... makes the experience relaxing and fun. And the knowledge of the trainers is incredible... both courses were wonderful as learned a ton."



"Everything, Vicki is great"

"Friendly and professional! Well done!"



"Vicki led a fantastic course. This is the fourth course I've been on so far. All of the courses have been of very high quality but she gave a particularly good course. Made tasks intuitive and easy to access, gave us tools that would allow us to remember tasks. "



"Every thing else. Excellent instructor knowledge and very approachable. Thanks you very much for all this."



"Really friendly, covered a lot in only two days and Simo managed to cover everything everyone specifically wanted to learn"
