DELEGATE FEEDBACK

"Moving from creative to creative director seemed like an intimidating step. And one I wasn't sure I'd ever be up for. But after this course it's absolutely my next move". 2018 Delegate

"The course answered questions I didn't even know I had. It was a great networking opportunity to meet other aspiring CDs and get to know them and pick their brains in between the classes. It was also amazing exposure to some of the best creative leaders, clients and journalists in the business on such an intimate level". 2018 Delegate

"It's probably the best course I have done. But more importantly, a course where you are confident you will use the knowledge you have learned in your day to day work". 2018 Delegate

"Thanks very much for hosting the course. It's incredible that there aren't more like it throughout the world. It's definitely something that will stay with me for the rest of my career." 2018 Delegate
