Presented by Quentin. Quentin and his team have trained employees from over 1000 organisations including all ‘Big 4’ accountancy firms, all ‘Magic Circle’ law firms, MacLaren Sony, Red Bull, BBC, and Channel 4. Despite this extensive corporate experience, Quentin is at his happiest working with SMEs and charities. Follow him @QtheMarketer (https://twitter.com/QtheMarketer)
