I highly recommend Boot Camp for Small Business Owners & Solopreneurs to anyone pursuing their dreams of starting their own business. So much value, excellent instructors. Wonderful to be surround by and acquainted with an inspiring group. I’m very excited to see and share our growth.
I cannot speak highly enough about my experience with the Swiss Skills Academy. The SSA offers a wide variety of courses which are informative and user friendly regardless of one’s professional experience or background. The instructors do an excellent job personalizing the courses by tailoring them to their audiences on a case-by-case basis, creating a hands on and comfortable learning environment for all participants.
The Swiss Skills Academy’s course “Website and SEO Essentials: How to Build a Digital Presence” provided me with an excellent introduction to the ins and outs of developing and optimizing a new website. The instructor, Nancy Huang, personalized the course to our group as she took us on a step-by-step interactive journey to design a new website in addition to sharing fascinating and valuable insight on how search engines operate.
I went into Presentation and Pitching Techniques course from the Swiss Skills Academy without clear expectations. Having worked as a lawyer, I think I figured I was good at that kind of thing already, but I was looking forward to honing my skills. I actually learned much more than I expected about presenting and pitching. I really enjoyed the way the course was taught. And I learned some things about myself too.
Cécile Bastien Remy teaches in a fun and lively way and she speaks eloquently and effortlessly at the same time. She uses various exercises, such as the tried and true method of videoing each other while pitching. She also builds up the course really well: she shows how a short pitch about yourself can keep growing and evolving during the 3 hour course. We used various techniques and adapted our pitches to different audiences.
The end pitch I walked away with was meaningful, to the point and moving. So to conclude: this course can really be a boost for your skills, no matter your background.
