Testimonials & Participant Comments

I worked closely with Russell in his capacity as a corporate digital expert trainer. We saw a need to provide digital training for all levels in the agency, presented in a way everyone, at different levels of knowledge could easily comprehend and use immediately in their roles. I also attended his digital media sales advantage course which provided me with an enhanced comprehension of digital and his approach demystified digital for me increasing my confidence substantially. Russell is passionate in his craft, has a great teaching approach, creating a comfortable environment to ask questions without judgement. I wouldn’t hesitate engaging Russell again to train my team and help me work out a training plan to again help navigate a program for different levels of understanding for the team and clients. If you need digital training I highly recommend getting in touch with Russell at Digital Brief.
Rebel Radio Network engaged Russ Easther from Digitalbrief in July to upskill our radio account managers with a working knowledge of digital marketing offerings by Rebel Digital, our digital marketing division. Initially, the training was to be on site over three days on the Gold Coast, but circumstances forced us to train our 12 staff in a virtual environment. Russ was an adept trainer and adapted to the changing format with ease. I was amazed at how he interacted with our staff and encouraged participation in the three full days of training. The training covered a lot of material in a short period of time, but Russ’s training methods incorporated recall and repetition which allowed us to cover the subjects required in an in-depth, but fun format. I have only praise for the way in which Russ developed an easy rapport with our team and instilled in them not only a new skill set but an appreciation of new digital marketing techniques. In just over a month, our team has shown remarkable advances in sales of digital services and the ROI on our investment has been outstanding averaging 41% increase in digital marketing sales since training.
