“I’m not a fan of webinars but this is the best example of the form I’ve experienced – good pacing, carefully managed episodes for participation.”

“I just wanted to say a really big thank you! It was only really after attending your course that I realised I could apply the same creativity I try to put into my research into making a living as well! I now have a freelance job editing manuscripts … fitting it around my ongoing research activities. So for me it is a real win.”

“The presenter explained everything thoroughly and took into account all kinds of responses from the participants.”
