Christian’s brain works as quickly as the internet when it comes to digital strategies and marketing ideas. He was free with his advice and guidance and whatever else he thought would help us understand and implement the knowledge into our organisations’ digital strategies. He has an interactive form of training that allows your learning to be as targeted as it can be in a diverse group setting. I am excited and am looking forward to creating and rolling out a full digital strategy for my organisation. Thank you, Rhics!
