Sally Berger

Administration Support Officer VST at Ambulance Victoria

In three days I learned not only how to use WordPress, but also about broader elements including design, security and future trends that resulted in a deeper understanding of all things IT.

My new-found knowledge has given me confidence to achieve the goal that led me to undertaking this training, and has opened my mind to other ways to use these skills in the future.

Glenn’s way of facilitating is to empower you with knowledge, presenting options and challenges to guide you to make your own decisions and to learn by doing.

I learned much more than I thought possible in a short period of time, enjoyed shared learnings with other participants, and came away armed with knowledge and skills that have enriched my life.
Thank you Glenn.

What I always remember after the training is that Glenn always emphasising on strategy, and that is the most important part of building a website. This is a reflection on how someone has lots of experience on the web industry. The other one is, digital minimisation and to make things simple. Because at the end of the story is how you can attract the audience or customer, without sweating too much.

Karoline Morwitzer

The Digital Action Skills training was so helpful for Friends, Families and Feminists Against Detention. As a small emerging grassroots campaign group we’re very new to this important area of campaigning. Having these new digital campaigning skills will be crucial in terms of efficiently growing and organising our activities, data, and public reach. These workshops are often difficult and expensive to access for small groups like ours. We’re very thankful for having had the opportunity.
