The program ran over several weeks and was designed to cover most aspects of web design and e-commerce.
It is obvious that all presenters are masters of their trade and the topics and information provided related well to all the participants. Each presenter provided clear and concise visual aids as well as back up printed reference material. A wide variety of businesses were represented by the participants and each presenter took time to answer individual questions to suit the differing requirements.
I would certainly recommend the services to any business needing help and advice.
