Reading Time: 4 minutes


This week I have been very excited to share Scout Digital Training‘s new courses for 2018!

The response to the initial three Google Analytics and SEO courses has been so great that we are considerably expanding our offering in 2018 to provide even more effective, practical and hands-on digital training to keep you up to date, and confident to improve your digital and social media marketing.

I am no longer doing it all on my own though. I have handpicked some of South Australia’s top local talent whom I will be collaborating with to develop and deliver these courses.

Each of these trainers are business owners and practitioners in their own right, so they have practical experience and understand the importance of business results.

They are also experts in their field, passionate about their focus, and eager to share it with you.

You can read more about each of the trainers below.

But first, the courses!
