“It was a great course, very interesting and I really got some useful ideas out of it which are already helping to expand the takings for Christmas!”
Nye Farley, Finale Guitar
“I just wanted to drop you a message to thank you for all your help with my Sheffield based business and in helping work through what I need to do to begin an e commerce shop selling my products (chocolate brownies) online. I really enjoyed the workshops that you put together around selling online and the stats around all the selling platforms were really useful which I was able to listen to at my own pace. The one to one zoom meeting during lockdown was excellent and was tailored to suit my needs perfectly, I can’t thank you and your associates enough for all your help and support with launching my online e-commerce store.”
Heather Moore, We Luv Brownies
