World-class! Never have I had weeks with so much intense concentration, exciting and up-to-date information, advice and guidance – and such a vivid teacher. Ricco – respect!

You are inspiring from morning to the afternoon – no wobbling at any point. You are an absolutely fantastic teacher, very committed and you have my best recommendations!

Dear Ricco, I would personally like to say THANK YOU for a great experience during the last few weeks. You are completely fantastic!

I actually lack words… Did not expect to be at school would leave such a big impression on me.

Absolutely amazing to have been enriched with all your expert knowledge in a very professional manner – according to my best evaluation.

Thank You! I will see you in the next course. I will pop by.

A very exciting and educational course. I don’t think you can get more knowledge about the entire online marketing area in one course anywhere else.

Everything is served by a super inspiring teacher and wrapped in a nice relaxed atmosphere. Besides, afterwards, you have access to a large knowledge bank and a network of peers to work with.

Have not for a single moment regretted signing up for the course. On the contrary, it has given me more than I hoped for.

I had high expectations for the course, but I had never imagined that it would be as great as it turned out to be.

Although I have six years of education at the university in the baggage, I can without hesitation say that I have never received as useful training like the one I received at the course in online marketing.

I have gained professional strength that I have not experienced having before, which made me able to enter the workforce with a completely different feeling in the stomach.

I now possess some competencies that are in high demand in the labour market and the instructors have made ​​me realize how much I actually know and can do. And that is a lot!

The professional level is high and the course is very well designed. I especially want to thank Ricco for the sublime teaching, which he has undertaken with superior communication skills and immense knowledge.

I have now almost exhausted my supply of adjectives, but the course deserves every one of them. During the course, I have been permanently employed by an international organisation.

I just completed the course with Ricco. Rarely have I enjoyed teaching which has been so interesting and intensive.

My head is full of new and exciting knowledge, and suddenly contains, as a matter of course, words like SEO, conversion optimisation, keyword analysis etc.

It has been deeply interesting from day one! Can strongly recommend the course and not least Ricco. He has a unique personality and way of conveying complex information so that everyone understands it as the easiest thing in the world.

In addition, you feel that he truly burns for the subject and that definitely rubs off. Now, after completing the course, I am full of courage, curiosity and expectation to delve further into what I have learned and get out there and practice it in the context of a company.

Thanks for some beautiful beautiful weeks.
