Past participants from this course said

Roger managed to translate his obvious technical knowledge into accessible, easy-to-action tips and advice. An excellent intro to podcasting which gives participants the knowledge, tools and confidence to give it a go and - more importantly - make it work for their communications needs. 

The course was very informative and I learned so much from the setup background tasks to marketing and launch. Excited to get started. Got loads of inspiration and ideas!

Roger provided a clear understanding of the steps needed to set up a new podcast from scratch. His enthusiasm for and knowledge of this area is clear in his patient, methodical approach.
