I recently completed this program and loved it! If you want to ‘get up to speed’ on everything digital for your business, book in now to take advantage of the early bird special.
LYNDALL HARRIS
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

“The topic was discussed right to the point and in the right level of detail. This training is an absolute necessity for businesses in this day and age”

BYO Laptop Participant
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!
PAULINE BOS

“Kat was very practical and helpful. I wasn’t sure where to start and now I know I need to take stock and plan forward. Thank you.”

Connecting Up Webinar Participant
The program has been a wonderful experience for me…way out of my comfort zone! And I wish to say a huge thanks to the GUTS team for your help, support and patience. My thanks also to Krishna, she has been fabulous to me, I owe her a debt of gratitude!
DI RIDDELL
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
This program has been far above and beyond what I could ever have imagined to be beneficial. I am so pleased we get to the end of year to view the portal and go over it all numerous times. Struggling with time & am behind but everything I have learnt [ which is a lot] has been the greatest.
HELEN BENTLEY
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……
