    Hi Ramon,

    The Blogging for Business seminar was fantastic! When I was studying journalism, online media was still so new that its use in the media and amongst businesses was still minimal compared with modern day. Your seminar gave me the basic skills, understanding, and know-how to leverage my own basics, and turn a simple blog into a very powerful business tool! I have already started revamping the magazine’s blog, and will put into practice much of what you have taught me.

    Aside from the knowledge/skills I gained through seminar, I found you to be an excellent facilitator (well prepared, professional, very knowledgeable, not overbearing). The seminar was run over a few short hours, making it bite-sized and therefore manageable. You gave us material to take home, and showed us how to go about using it. The group was small enough that you could deal with our individual concerns and questions directly. The coffee was great too!

    I would recommend the Blogging for Business course to anyone in the media, or the corporate world, and especially to brand owners/managers, and marketers.
    Thank you!

    Hi Ramon,

    Fulvia said it – it is an excellent introduction and overview of concepts that can be quite intimidating to those who don’t live in the blogosphere.

    I feel much more confident about developing a blog for Wunderman (watch this space), and as a result of your workshop, I’ve rethought our strategy – for the better.

    I was at the Greenwood Park School parent meeting on the 6th February 2010, to hear a load of bull shit from Mr. Ian Africa (Principal) Does the Principal think we parents are that stupid. He mentioned that they going to opened a computer room and has a very experienced computer teacher Ms. Fynn who will take us to new heights.

    Anyone in the Greenwood Park area as well as some of us (parents) know that Ms. Fynn taught in this school and resigned about 2 years ago to teach in Dubai for the $$$, what we heard is that she taught small kids in Dubai and not COMPUTER

    Now after 2 years Mr. Ian Africa has employed Ms. Fynn as a COMPUTER EXPERT and say to us the she is bring back her COMPUTER SKILLS all the way from Dubai to our children to Greenwood Park School.

    What we as parents would like to know is what is her qualification in computer, if she does not have the required computer skills what is Ms. Fynn doing in our school and what is she going to teach our kids.

    Surely the Department of Education should employ a computer expert to teach our kids.

    We all know Mr. Ian Africa has the Governing Body in his pocket, what he says go no one in the Governing Body dare object to his staff appointment or as any say in the running of this lovely school. Its Mr. Africa’s way or no way at all.

    Unfortunately the Governing Body has disappointed us as parents.

    If one look at Mr. Africa’s staff appointments one will notice most of the teachers he employed are either his FRIENDS who worked in other institutions (eg. Banking) for a number of years and not in the teaching profession or young pretty lady who have NO EXPERIENCE. There was a rumor in Greenwood Park School that Mr. Ian Africa was having “something” with one of such young pretty lady prior to her being appointed in this school.

    If Mr. Ian Africa did his job like he should, he would appoint teachers based on experience and not JOBS FOR PALS and PRETTY YOUNG LADIES with no experience.
