Supporting business in the region

Laura Jones, Sales & Marketing Manager Clonmel Park Hotel, who participated in the Digital Marketing Programme with County Tipperary Skillnet felt “the delivery of the course was great, it’s very hard to sit back into a classroom style environment when you’ve been out of it so long in the working world. The way the day was broken down led to the best learning experience we could possibly ask for. We really enjoyed it”.
