Piers's Latest Reviews



"I've been to a lot of your in house training courses and this online version did not disappoint, just as interesting and informative just without your amazing lunch! :) Thank you very much Piers"

"Piers was brilliant. He set the tone of the course right from the start, and his relaxed and natural approach encouraged interaction immediately. The exercises were clear and informative, and the time we had to develop our ideas independently and then share with the class worked really well. It's the first time I've been in a Zoom breakout room, and they were a great addition to the course, encouraging conversation between smaller groups of delegates. This made it feel more like a face-to-face course which was really helpful. The breaks were well-staggered through the day, giving us time to break away and relax."

Feature Writing : Advanced
"Piers was very knowledgeable and gave a great mix of information, top tips, feedback and challenging exercises to test me throughout the day. I found that way of learning perfect - it helped me to learn a lot and to pose me a number of thoughts for when I do feature writing from now on. The course will certainly help me in my role in the future. I'm also very grateful for the flexibility of the course organisers ensuring that the course could be done via Zoom rather than having to travel to and from London for the day . Everybody at Media Training have been brilliant throughout, and I look forward to hopefully signing up for another one of your courses in the future :)"
