Sharing practical experience
We have a passion for sharing our extensive experience and are definitely straight-shooters. There will be no beating around the bush, no fluff.
You can expect to be exposed to real case studies, about real businesses. Learn about real digital marketing tactics, that produce real results. You will also hear about real failures and therefore gain real learnings.
We create a safe and stimulating learning environment, so that our students feel able to speak up. You may whisper a question or comment at the start of the course, but by the end you will very likely find yourself shouting from the rooftops.
You will walk away from one of our courses feeling equipped and enthused and ready to apply your new digital marketing knowledge immediately.

What people say
Natalie GoodingCorporate Marketing Manager @ BUPA
“Val’s knowledge and experience working within digital marketing is like no one I’ve encountered before. We often have people coming to mentor in this area at Bupa and to be honest no one has had the skillset nor the intel on what’s new/ trending in the industry like Val. This coupled with her teaching ability and charismatic personality makes her a rare find. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to any company large or small looking to initiate a new digital marketing strategy or to improve an existing one and to anyone wanting to broaden their skills within this area throughout a course.”
Joanna RobertsNational Paid Media Specialist @ IKEA Group
“Val was incredibly authentic and engaging throughout the course. Her extensive and up-to the minute knowledge and enthusiasm for digital marketing, combined with her wicked sense of humour, and skill at engaging with every member of the class, made it a real pleasure to attend. I left armed with knowledge, ideas and tips that are already making a positive impact in my role. I recommend anyone who wants to improve their digital marketing knowledge and learn applicable skills to attend Val's courses.”
Sanja CoundrelisRetail Marketing Specialist @ Telstra
“I can’t recommend Val highly enough. Her digital marketing class was extremely engaging, she encouraged creative thinking and the content of the class was relevant and educational. Val used many case studies to show us what to do and what not to do. She used plenty of videos and examples to make her points clear and understandable (many of them from her own experiences). Val also gave us many tools, templates and links to helpful websites. Her class left me feeling motivated to try some new marketing tactics and to also continue learning more about the vast world of digital marketing.”
Anne StonePrincipal @ McGrath Estate Agent
“Val has been working on my social media platforms which include Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. Her and her team have been delightful to work with. Since Val has taken over, we have seen the numbers increase immensely across all platforms. She has high knowledge of the local area and the digital marketing world. Thank you to Val and her team for the on-going support.”
