This location is situated on Junction 30 of the M4 making it ideal for those travelling from Cardiff, Newport, the South West England, West Wales and the South Wales Valleys. Our CIM and CAM courses generally take place here, along with 1-day workshops.

London location (training)
The venue for the workshop is in the heart of London and therefore ideal for transport links. We hold the training at either Portland Place or Holborn Bars in London. Both venues offer free wifi, teas/coffees and a sit-down lunch in a restaurant on-site.
About your tutor
Your tutor for the day is Stephen Cleary. He has over 10 years’ experience of shooting, producing, directing and editing video for advertising and social media. He runs his own Cardiff-based production company called Carnival Content and was formerly the Digital Marketing Manager at one of Wales' universities. He is an expert in content marketing, combining creative production techniques with marketing and social strategy. His campaigns have even been awarded top honours in the CIM Marketing Excellence Awards.
We learnt how to apply different shooting techniques, including interviewing contributors and using time-laps and slow-motion footage to create striking videos.
The editing was swift and easy on our mobiles.
I'd definitely recommend the course to other marketers, communicators and business people who want to have an impact, but don't have the resources to use external providers.

I thought the course was fantastic. I don't use IT a huge amount and I was worried that I wouldn't keep up but it was so easy to follow, the software is so intuitive and it was fascinating, you could make stuff really really quickly and I definitely want to learn more. I'll be back in on the course on day 2!
