This was a fantastic experience. I learnt worthwhile information over the two days. I would highly recommend doing a Learning Waves course.
Professional and passionate facilitators with relevant and current findings distributed to attendees in a way that is useful for them.
I would highly recommend this course for anyone in radio that feels they need to improve their skills in Adobe Audition. I learned things in this course that I didn’t even know were possible to do in Adobe Audition. Keith was a great trainer, and I would definitely do another course with him!
Claire and Laura from THINKHOUSE delivered this course in a fun and interactive way with eye opening facts about sustainability and how we in radio have the opportunity to educate people. I would highly recommend this course.
This course was an eye opener for me, not just for suggesting new revenue opportunities but encouraging me that it would work. I learned more in this course than I thought was ever possible. Joanne was both a great instructor and a true source of encouragement. I would be happy to attend other courses like this in the future.
This workshop was relevant, up to date and informative. Sarah and Frank used well known cases to illustrate theory. I would recommend this to reporters at all levels.
A very useful course in terms of understanding the current state of the various social media platforms; who is using them, how they are using them, what is working and what's not working. Joanne provided useful tools and a few handy short cuts around content creation.
Mark Egan is an expert in his field and is a great teacher. I have a greater knowledge of TikTok and how it can benefit me personally but, most importantly, professionally. The course is packed with content that is informative and very engaging. I was hooked from the beginning to end. I liked that it was practical. I learned whilst doing which will stand to me as a broadcast journalist. I would recommend this course to everyone.
I feel very fortunate to have attended this course with Paul Connolly. His wealth of knowledge and approach in teaching made the course very enjoyable and engaging. Lots of learnings from this course!
Learning Waves always offers practical and forward-thinking courses delivered by great teachers who are highly experienced people in their field.
This course was excellent. Glen delivered the material in an engaging and practical way. The mixture of presentations and practical tasks meant we were able to put our new skills into practice, receiving critcal feedback along the way. I would attend another workshop with Glen!
Learning Waves always has something to offer that is relevant to the changing landscape of the radio sector. The trainers are always well prepared and full of experience from the appropriate background.
This was a great course. The trainer was very helpful and knowledgeable. The course was easy to follow for some one with a low level understanding of Google Analytics.
This course offered a practical insight into protecting ourselves in radio as much as we can from defamation, copyright, etc. It was explained thoroughly which made everything easier to understand from a day-to-day perspective.
Maria was an engaging and enthusiastic instructor. It was lovely working with her.
Another great session with Joanne. Even when you use the platform daily, there's always something new to learn.
Eric's course is fantastic. From start to finish, he was entertaining, encouraging, and thorough with all forms of voice training. He picked out key areas to work on from pace, intonation, and wording! Could not recommend enough!
Joanne is just brilliant! She knows all things social media and is forever evolving with current trends. I would 100% recommend doing a course with her. She is always so encouraging and there is much to learn.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone working in social media/journalism, whether you are new to TikTok or looking to brush up on your pre-existing content creation skills. Mark is an engaging and informative tutor, and his delivery was very entertaining. The two-day course is packed full of exercises and activities to keep you on your toes. Lots of take-aways from the course that I will incorporate into my daily role. Thanks to Mark and Teresa for facilitating the course.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course and found it extremely beneficial. It was inspiring, thought-provoking, engaging, and it gave me an opportunity to think a little differently, to examine my own work and styles and to look at ways to progress in my career.
Excellent course. It really showcased a comprehensive list of apps that use AI and could easily be integrated into radio production and content creation processes. Highly beneficial.
Excellent course with very clear delivery. With the direction journalism is heading, I think everyone working in a newsroom should take this course.
This course is something that should be rolled out throughout almost all industries. How to spot mental health issues in your colleagues and how to help support people is something we all need to create a resilient work culture.
I really enjoyed the course, thanks so much to Siobhan for being so thorough, I will be sharing with my colleagues in Cork's 96 fm.
I found the Balance Wheel model enlightening. The 1-on-1 coaching was amazing. I found the Eisenhower model great. It has helped me with prioritising and managing tasks. Before this training I hadn't given careful consideration to the different personality types that make up my colleagues. Although we all work in a creative environment, it doesn't always mean everyone will be extroverted. This training helped me understand how to adapt my style of management to the different personalities in the workplace.
Enrolling in this course was an absolute game-changer for me. From learning the ins and outs of broadcasting to mastering the art of crafting compelling stories, every moment has been a joy. The instructors bring unmatched expertise and enthusiasm to each session, making the learning experience both informative and exciting. This course has ignited my passion for radio, and I can’t wait to take what I’ve learned and turn it into my own broadcast magic. A heartfelt thank you to Teresa and Nessa for making this journey so enjoyable!
I really enjoyed the course, and it was delivered in a manner that was very easy to understand.
I always look forward to sessions with Eric. The individualised nature of the course means you have tailored feedback that applies specifically to your style, reading, and writing. Invaluable for a reporter/newsreader.
A thorough and informative course which has broadened my understanding of referenda coverage and how it should be executed.
