Denise Harman lives in Wandsworth, South West London, with her husband and five year-old twin girls. Previously a management consultant, Denise took five years out to look after her children. “Before I started the course, I would have described myself as having low confidence in my skills generally, totally lacking any digital awareness and a bit of a nervous numpty with technology.
“I liked the look of the course objectives and the fact there was a mixture of learning as well as great content for me, like building my personal brand and understanding my learning styles.
“I haven’t regretted it for a single moment. My digital knowledge has been given a complete overhaul and I feel totally able to conduct conversations with people “in the know” about this brave new world.
“There is a lot of information to assimilate, but the course is brilliantly structured to accommodate all sorts of learning styles so it's a mixture of reading, watching, listening and doing. It's sufficiently challenging without being stressful and I was confidently using new tools and apps right from the get-go.
“Just getting to grips, quickly, with new technology is a real boost for someone who’s been out of the workplace for a while. The course has a very nice way of making you try things in a safe environment and it’s reminded me that I can still learn and develop and it has really boosted my self-esteem. I have definitely reclaimed my ‘you can do it’ attitude.”
