digital marketing courses


The world is changing rapidly. Keeping yourself and your staff updated with the information they need to succeed in today’s business world is a challenge. There are many providers, and so many channels – where do you start?

The Get Up To Speed 12 week online program is our flagship program. Over 750 people from across Australia and New Zealand have now participated in the program. Through this program, we’ve helped businesses to learn how to appear on the front page of Google and receive a higher level of traffic, enquiry and sales; businesses which were flailing to learn about how to effectively market online who have been able to flourish again with new skills and knowledge; people to find employment when previously they had not been employable; people to make career changes from something they were not passionate about to something they love and just generally gain the essential digital skills they needed to survive in the digital age. It’s rewarding work because we know we are making a real difference to so many people’s lives. We’ve had 17 year olds do the program and 70 year olds do the program. We’ve worked with people in major metropolitan cities from big corporations through to start ups and people in very rural and remote communities.

We’ve helped very non-technical people, and very tech savvy do the program, and all get something out of it which makes it a very unique program indeed. But even more powerful is that each of the people who do the program in turn help many others in their region – their schools, committees, friends, family, colleagues etc. with their new found knowledge and skills.

Our next intake will start in August 2015. Registrations will open in June/July 2015. In the meantime, provide us your details by completing the expression of interest form (click on the button below) and we’ll be sure to let you know the moment registrations open.
