Vicki made the training both fun and manageable, and I have now come away feeling like I can tackle the design work that is relevant to my current role. Thank you!"

"Vicki was really supportive and happy to show us extra things that were relevant to our job roles. She was good at repeating processes and allowing you to practice and learn - the practice session at the end of the course was especially helpful as it allowed us to see how much we'd learnt and iron out any problems.

Great to have a notebook and pen provided and the food and refreshments were amazing! Really helps to keep energy levels up. The course content was great. Really good to have a mix of files to play with and the ability to do things as a group as well as individually. The pace of the workshop was really good, and the size of the class was perfect. Was also really good to have the session on the Friday afternoon to be able to have some free time to play around and try out some of the skills we have learnt and have Vikki there to answer our questions. I really have thoroughly enjoyed the past 2 day Indesign course and am looking forward to being able to use my new found skills. Thanks very much Vikki! "
