Testimonials

The PR workshops are fast-paced, full of useful information and compelling. Delegates walk away with a head full of ideas and enthused about the media. Your trainers are professional, easy to deal with and flexible. I can wholeheartedly recommend Mary Murtagh Media’s PR workshops.

Mary Murtagh Media has provided a range of workshops to the Enterprise Steps and Dek ERDF-funded business support programmes since 2015. LSBU’s collaboration over four years demonstrates the high regard in which we hold this training.

Mary Murtagh and her team of associates deliver practical, valuable and insightful learning. Feedback is excellent from the small business owners who attend. Demand for their workshops is always strong and small business owners often attend all of their workshops because they learn things that are immediately applicable back at work.

In dealing with Mary I have found her to be reliable, flexible and sensitive to the complexities of an ERDF-funded programme. Small business owners tell us that trainers are inclusive, approachable and genuinely expert in their respective fields.

I highly recommend Mary Murtagh Media for your business support project.
