We got some great feedback from our session in February. Michelle Nadon, CEO of MediaIntelligence said she chose “Mediabistro as a service provider based on their content, which was excellent, their capacity to deliver training efficiently and effectively, and, always important, at a good price point.”
Steven Ziemba, social media and engagement specialist at Fox Chicago News called our Boot Camp a “Good, solid fundamental course on the basics of social media. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to get up to speed on the social landscape.”
