  2. Hi Oliver,

    Thanks for your comment. These courses look really interesting and I know our training reps have PR Statistics on the list they are compiling of training resources. I don’t really want to make the links round up an advert for one organisation so I can’t really post the full text above, but I have mentioned PR Statistics and put a link to your comment into this week’s post.

    Thanks for your feedback and input.

    Laura

    • Hi Laura,

      I completely understand, it’s a tough balance between giving enough frequent updates and spamming, this seems like the perfect solution.
      The blogs have been really useful for multiplie reasons so far!
      Thanks again,
      Oliver
