“I have learnt digital marketing course via squared online. They also taught GA but not in depth. I learnt lots more through this course and thanks to Dhawal, the whole course interesting. From how to setup, tracking the code, step by step which I learnt a lot! Overall, I have to say the entire course much better than Squared Online. Thanks :)”

“Although the time for the course was very tight, I learnt a lot about the functionality of Google Analytics which would help me apply them in my job. Shah is also an excellent trainer who is deeply knowledgeable in digital marketing – he is very patient in guiding us throughout the last 2 days. I hope to attend more courses under the digital marketing and social media marketing series.”

“Dhawal was knowledgeable and helpful during the 2-day course. Beside covering the course materials, he made sure to demonstrate how to access the different sections of the tool as well as give real-life examples on how the lesson content would be applied. I really enjoyed the course. Thank you!”

“Before attending the course, I had little knowledge about Google Analytics and how useful it can be to inform marketing choices. After attending the course, I felt like I’ve only scratched the surface of GA but it has certainly opened my eyes to the importance of analytics and how understanding the data provided can help with learning about your audience, knowing how they found you and deciding what can be improved. I really enjoyed the course and Dhawal has been extremely helpful in answering my queries. He also poses challenging questions at times for me to crack my brains, so it helps in applying what I have learnt. Cannot wait to apply it to my work!!”

“It is very obvious that Dhawal is dipping into a pool of vast experience which he is then imparting onto us. It’s very difficult (at least for me) to grasp the very technical aspects of this course, but the constant chance to try out and apply what was taught in assignments after each chunk of information has been relayed, was very important for retention, and comprehension. This was the first course I have heard more than a few course mates say that they were finding it hard to catch up, but I would definitely attribute it to the contents of the course, rather than Dhawal, who was patient and helpful consistently.”
– Xie ShunHeng
“Fantastic trainer – Dhawal. He is knowledgeable on these terms and technicalities and understanding that we do not have such background, he makes it relevant for us especially for non-tech, non-data analyst roles. Dhawal has been very patient and responsive to any sort of questions during the course. Well done!”
