The internet, once hailed as the ultimate invention for communication and borderless business transactions is increasingly becoming a hotbed for bad players as digital platforms become entwined in every part of our daily lives.
With over 5 billion people connected and interacting online daily, the world is now heavily reliant on technology as more devices are connected online, more businesses now rely on technology like never before to deliver their services to consumers in a post-pandemic era.

He’s very conversant with the topic and I would suggest this course to everyone. My main takeaway from this course is that it has opened my mind…
The digital age is upon us. Guyana is an right now in the emerging state so internet boom will be upon us soon. Digital technologies, so to speak, should be adopted by everyone. We should transform our current ways of doing things and go digital because that is where the future is.
One of the things I’ve learned so far from this training is that there are so many platforms that you could advertise your business or organization to earn more support or clients. We’ve learned a lot so far.
I loved the practical application of course content and quality of information shared. I have learnt how to implement social media campaigns, establish brand presence and create email marketing campaigns.
Coming out of this training, I have a better understanding of the most cost-effective tools that I can use to market my business.
I just want to thank Christian for journeying all the way to Grenada to do this for us. I think it is a much-needed program at this point in Grenada where we are moving and transition into a time whereby everything is done online.
I found the training in digital strategies for business growth to be a real and practical journey towards my organization achieving a competitive edge in the industry; the finance e industry. It really put in focus our strategic plans; how we target our customers and remain relevant in a digital marketing world.
I must say this course has been very insightful and I would recommend it for anywhere who is serious about marketing and business growth.
The greatest takeaway for myself and my team is that we’re able to improve our inbound marketing and sale. Also, how to attract customers, convert them and close them.
The Digital Business Strategies training was very interactive. I will change my practice by implementing what I have learnt.
I’ve learned that we don’t need to fight our competition; we can cooperate to get a co-opetition.
One of the things that stood out to me is the fact that in order for your business to be relevant in this technological age, you can use the different social media platforms to promote your business. It can help you to get more customers.
