In 2014 The Training Collective was formed as a spin-off company out of multi-award winning company The Creative Collective, to focus solely on training. We are still ‘sister’ companies, and work closely together as we believe offering a service and sharing knowledge is a powerful combination for business success and that our offerings are symbiotic. We also share staff, premises and a continual exchange of knowledge in terms of what is the latest and greatest in technology and digital marketing trends. Some of our clients start with training (with The Training Collective), and then engage us for our services. Others start with services, and identify a need for training. Either way, we’re happy to help.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
Thanks for the awesome program. I did miss a couple of sessions which I’ll go back into but tonight was a great overview. Yvette Adams, you and your team are awesome!! … I now have a broad understanding of online marketing and cannot wait to put all this to practice with my new site.
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!
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.
A wealth of information has been shared – mind blowing stats for future social media, hard to get my head around reinforced our need to engage in one or several forms of social media, best of all, it was very easy listening. Thank you.
The completion of this course has enabled me to gain a work experience position in the web design industry with a view to a full time position. I had initially applied for this Project Management position 8 months ago but was unsuccessful due to a lack of “technical knowledge” of the digital space. My new GUTS knowledge added to my extensive Project Management experience has now got me in the door with the potential for permanent employment back in the IT industry. Very exciting stuff……
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.
I thought the session was great and Tara was obviously a subject matter expert.
Firstly, I would like to congratulate you on a terrific course. Its flexibility became my saviour many times. Initially, my intention upon doing the course was to “fill in the gaps”. But I learnt more than that -so much more…. I have delved into social media, and found myself enlightened with the privacy settings! … I had used Google Analytics before, with no real understanding, until your e-lesson and webinar. Both were invaluable for great website resources and simple explanations of the complexities of the analysis. I have much greater knowledge and understanding of web marketing, both paid and unpaid, and am introducing myself to mail chimp and pay per click as time allows. It was great to bounce ideas off my mentor, who was actually fantastic at positive constructive feedback as the site progressed. Giving me time on the phone, as well as the Facebook lounge and private e-mails, kept me on track. This program has given me a great on line toolbox. You ought to see my bookmarks page!!! Thanks again for everything – well worth the price!
