Course Testimonials

Thank you Yvette, Zoe, Paul, Anthony and everyone involved in the program – I enjoyed every aspect of it! Beside providing me with tools with which to improve my online presence, it gave me confidence to go on. There is so much information packed in these twelve weeks, it is invaluable!
MARIE-HELENE BLACKMORE
I’ve received up to date information which is very helpful and timely. I’ve had a chance to look closely at shortcomings in my business and seen new potential.
CHRISTINE CARROLL
I am not very internet/computer savvy but it has been rather exciting even getting to the point of publishing a website – it is just great to actually have a web presence….my kids (aged 29-36 who have good computer skills) are impressed too! The GUTS program has boosted my knowledge and confidence in going online with our business…. I want to thank the advanced users for helping me through the Facebook members lounge, it has been greatly appreciated. Special thanks to Yvette, Zoe, Karen, Elise and all in the GUTS team, has been just great.
MARY SCHLOSS
These guys are my go-to after meeting Yvette at an Australian Institute of Company Directors function. They are great at teaching the tech illiterate through to the well experienced. They also are my go-to for gift giving for friends and family – I have gifted Yvette’s book to all my friends with kids. They have a mix of passion and helpfulness that is rare in business.
Jen Wilks
Thanks it was a really valuable program … I now know what is out there, how it works, how vital it is and what to ask for when working with social media consultants (and can run checks on how well they are performing too! Since the program we have set up an online business using Shopify,and Facebook and are about to set up a Pinterest account too. Many thanks, it is a really valuable, down to earth and vital program.
LIZ MILNES
I have been working on my business on and off for the last 5 years. It has undergone many transitions in that time, most of which have been based on my creative whim, rather than any commercial purpose or competitive reasoning, and all previous decisions have been emotional ones. While doing the Get Up To Speed program, I have finally began to see my business from a commercial perspective, to make decisions based on strategy and to see my target market for who they truly are, and not some variation of myself. And with the tools the program has given me, it is also the first time I have been diligent and disciplined with my planning and research stages. I am learning so much and when I look back at what I have been doing up until now, the ineffectiveness of my methods are embarrassingly clear.
KARINA SHARPE
As much as I despise social media for its antisocial effects, I did experience a sense of inspiration for the future from the potential benefits Facebook business may contribute to tailored supply of goods and services. I thought it was great. Thanks Yvette and Amy!
BYO Participant
Thank you so much for the course. I have learnt so much, and feel I now know what I have to do to make all this Social Media work for my business. Thank you for all your hard work and professionalism!
PENNY RIDDOCH
I couldn’t have asked for much more. The sessions were brilliant. My skill set has been greatly added to and I feel very confident of carrying over what I’ve learnt into my professional practice. Andrew’s willingness to help me with future inquiries on Skype is a godsend and will help me immensely. I’m very happy with your service and would happily recommend you guys to anyone.
DARREN KENNEDY
The course provides information to allow me to take control of my website and digital marketing. Prior to this, I was at the mercy of the people I was paying who would all too often provide what they wanted instead of what I’d asked for. AS a business owner, understanding new technologies is as important as understanding your accounts, because if you don’t you are vulnerable. You don’t have to do it yourself, but you need to have a basic understanding of what can be done, and this course provided me with that understanding.
