What others have said about our Coconut Creatives Marketing Workshops:
“I came on the workshop to find out really how to improve our recruitment process and I’ve been given so many great ideas, which I think will save my franchise manager at least 6 days a month, which is absolutely fantastic. I’d certainly recommend it to any franchisors who are looking to improve the quality of their marketing,” Sussanne Chambers, HomeXperts.
“I’m always slightly sceptical about coming to marketing workshops and marketing seminars but it’s been excellent. A friend of mine always used to say that if you can take home one piece of useful information, a seminar’s been good. Well I’m going to be taking a lot more than one, so thanks to the whole team!” Mark Casey, MOT2U
