The Cannes Lions festival came to a close in June, and their top 12 trends for 2011
in the marketing and advertising industry are digitally-focused. This just goes to show that the big guns out there who are winning these prestigious awards are pretty clued up when it comes to digital. Key to this is the understanding how the space operates and how it can be applied to your own business, whether big or small. Who better to teach this to you than the experts? Why should you do this course?
Quirk has over 12 years of experience in the digital realm and has first-hand experience of implementing world class campaigns for large international clients. Quirk Education specialises in the synthesis of this knowledge into material that is practical, applicable and accessible to working professionals, graduates wanting a career kick-start and small businesses needing to leverage the power of the Web better.
Online learning is the way forward. It is the best way for a working professional to soak up the knowledge gained from the course. Feedback from our students shows that they find this method of learning interactive and highly practical:
