Linda Tortensson, Director of Kozi Kidz award-winning worldwide exporter of children's waterproof outdoor clothing: Star Business Monthly feature February 2013   -I'd say my skills and confidence in PR were utterly non-existent before the Bitsesize course, but the benefits I've gained are 10/10 and will grow!

She is very approachable and easy to work with, talking in terms we can understand. She has given me some invaluable knowledge to take forward with me and help grow my business. Lee Todd, Marketing manager of Merlin Software Ltd: Barnsley Chronicle -Thanks so much for all the support and advice you gave me over the past few weeks as an attendee of your Brandbooster Bitesize programme. I thoroughly enjoyed attending the 6 weekly workshops and learnt such a lot, my high expectations were exceeded. Prior to starting this course I knew that public relations and branding were important, but I didn't have any good contacts and I had no idea where to start when communicating with the press. The workshops I attended have helped me to understand what journalists need so that I can help them whilst helping my business profile. I'd strongly recommend attending this very valuable programme to anyone who is keen to develop their brand. You delivered the course with such warmth, energy and enthusiasm and you really know your stuff. But more than that, you have forged strong relationships with local journalists so you're often their 'go to' person what you know and share is pure gold dust for any business owner. Lisa Read, Founder of Lisa Read Coaching and Olympic Legacy: Star Business Monthly two page feature, Sheffield Telegraph holiday feature, Star charity founder feature, Star award winning coach feature.   £397 for the six week course!
