“PR on a Shoestring is an excellent course I really enjoyed it and learned a lot. The more I think about it, the more I feel I got from it – it takes a day or two to absorb all the information!!
I will be recommending to all and sundry.”
Máire Flynn, The Tannery Restaurant

“A one-day fast-track to understanding the main principles of PR and social media in Ireland. Jack delivers a lively and energetic performance, which leaves you enthusiastic about tackling your own PR objectives. I also enjoyed the mix of theory, practical case studies, group feedback and videos – great course!”
Elaine Watters, Elaine Watters Photography
